Connecticut Tornados

Project # 50829

Connecticut Tornadoes – Tree Impact Claims

VERTEX provided forensic engineering to various owners and insurance carriers for a multitude of properties damaged by tree impacts from a series of EF1 tornadoes that touched down in southwest Connecticut with peak wind speeds up to 100mph. Services included determination of the extent of structural damage, structural repair recommendations, and alerting the clients to applicable code upgrades. Several investigations involved follow-up correspondence and verification with local code officials to properly document and verify code requirements. VERTEX’s expertise in code requirements for residential construction, background in structural design, and the ability to communicate effectively with local code officials resulted in the identification of excessive scope items, significant cost savings, and reduced inconvenience for the homeowner.
