STORM DAMAGE
West Pennant Hills

Sun-Greenaway were engaged by AAMI to attend this property when a huge tree had crashed through the centre of the large brick veneer home during a storm in February 2005. The images show the destruction wrought by the tree impact.
The priority was to remove the tree from within the house and then remove all the smashed timber and roof tiles to enable the roof to be covered by tarpaulins to protect against water entry damage. This was successfully undertaken using our specialist team of tradesmen and the use of cherry picker access equipment. The property did not suffer any water entry once the emergency work was complete.
Sun-Greenaway provided and won a tender for the reconstruction of the damaged building. A Scope of Work was prepared by a Structural Engineer who specialises in such damage and he supervised the reconstruction work. The original truss and frame manufacturer was engaged to manufacture and deliver the roof trusses. The building was methodically rebuilt from the concrete slab upwards and as the images below show, when complete the finished building looked like new.
When we first inspected the damage the Owner was distraught and thought his home was a write-off. After structural investigation it was determined that the building could be successfully reinstated and Sun-Greenaway undertook this within budget and on time.
