Floor Levels: Residential

Client feedback says it all: Risknet offers more than any other property inspection business in Canterbury.

“Stuart, you likely saved us 100 grand! We thought the house was OK but your report clearly showed it was not. Excellent work man” Greg White (buyer, and a repeat client).

Risknet Ltd has developed the benchmark for Floor level surveys that prove to be a game changer for disputes, price negotiations or for insurance claims.

This survey includes the collection and recording of key data points and plotting these onto a floor plan.

We provide a higher level of protection for the prospective purchaser in the event of future predicted seismic events. 

Let’s not be naïve. Future events are not only predicted, but they are also expected.

Winston Churchill famously stated “Those that fail to learn from history, are doomed to repeat it” 

For us to not acknowledge and learn from past mistakes made in the wake of the Canterbury Earthquakes, would demonstrate ignorance beyond comprehension.

The term “Historical settlement” in reference to floor levels, is broadly used by both EQC and Private Insurers to minimize their collective exposure to claims.

Ministry of Business, Innovation & Employment (MBIE) states the following.

“Building damage can be divided into two broad categories: damage that was caused solely by earthquake shaking; and damage that resulted from ground deformation including liquefaction, lateral spreading or landslip. While shaking damage to dwellings has been observed on the flat, the February and June 2011 aftershocks, in particular, caused significant shaking damage to hillside houses. The observed high vertical accelerations were responsible for severe damage sustained by tile roofs and brick veneers, and unreinforced foundations were often severely cracked”.
