There have been significant advances in durability, resiliency, and efficacy of materials over the years. However, the changing environment and manmade conditions can alter a material’s efficacy. Whether there is a material defect, design flaw, or manufacturing failure impacting a material’s performance or expected lifespan, our experts review the entire life cycle to determine the cause of the failure. We can remediate the existing condition, help in developing design solutions and, if necessary, support your insurance or litigation claim.
