FBS was established in 2004 as a result of an overwhelming number of residential and commercial structures that were damaged as a result defective construction, improper construction sequencing, product failure and failure to follow codes and standards.

Company founder, Thomas Irmiter, (see profile link) brings more than 40 years of experience in the field of construction and design into the process that makes FBS one of the industry leaders.

Our work includes evaluating virtually any type of damage caused to a building, the building’s contents or the building occupants. We have inspected over 5000 structures damaged by defective construction, weather events, fire, water intrusion, impact damage and collapse and developed compelling and easy-to-read reports with logical conclusions regarding causation.

In addition, we provide detailed project repair scopes and unit price estimates which can be used to better understand the extent of damages caused by the event and the cost of repairs.

FBS is available to perform services in almost every part of the country. In some circumstances, we have even provided our services outside of the country.


Our staff includes:

  • Licensed building code officials
  • Certified roofing inspectors
  • Mold inspectors
  • Experienced project managers
  • Experienced estimators
