Building fires are unfortunately common. But the effects of fire damage aren’t always obvious to the untrained eye. Fires can significantly reduce the strength of and alter the structural behavior to all wood, concrete, and steel framing structural systems with just the slightest bit of exposure to elevated temperatures.
Some common causes of building fires include:
- Improper installation & lack of maintenance of water heaters, boilers, and furnaces
- Improper installation of electrical outlets and circuitry
- Grease/Cooking fires
