Insurance Engineer Reports

Insurance Required Engineering Reports

Building Safety ChecklistInsurers often request engineers reports to document damage connected to incidents such as fire, flood or subsidence, a detailed report may be necessary for the insurers of the property.

We provide the appropriate investigation and further testing as appropriate to produce a comprehensive assessment of the event.

Engineer’s report may contain.

Your engineer may conduct a structural survey of the property for you, to see whether, as far as they can tell, the property is structurally sound. Walls or the foundations of your house, will be able to see if there are any obvious structural faults like subsidence, that you need to know about now. Have your engineer inspect the boundaries of your property. Your engineer would compare the map attached to the property to the boundaries, walls and fences that are actually on the ground, to confirm whether the map is correct.

Carbon Monoxide is a colourless, odourless and poisonous gas, which is sometimes fatal. It develops from the incomplete combustion of solid fossil fuels such as oil, turf, gas or coal is a common source of CO(Carbon Monoxide) and is responsible for many cases of non-fatal unintentional CO poisoning. Each year in Ireland 1 or 2 people die from unintentional CO poisoning in the home in incidents related to the burning of fossil fuels.

  • Blocked chimneys or flues get your chimney cleaned regularly.
  • Use of a barbecue grill or outdoor heater indoors.
