About Vibrationdamage.com

Vibrationdamage.com is a free resource for those who have experienced damage in their homes or other structures as a result of vibration from construction activities. It also provides information and help for those who may have construction pending in their area and want to prevent damage. The site is directed mainly at homeowners, but responsible construction companies, attorneys, consultants and others with an interest in vibration damage or monitoring or construction damage claims may find the information useful.

We also maintain databases of information on vibration damage occurrences around the world, provided by our visitors, and report the findings from those databases in both versions of the CVDG, with extensive content in the Professional Edition. Such information is the only publically-available analysis of damage prevalence, types, and circumstances anywhere in the world.

Vibrationdamage.com has a Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/vibrationdamage/. There, visitors can find additional vibration damage content not available on the Vibrationdamage.com or in the downloadable PDF, as well as leave their own comments and questions.

What We Do

We can:

  • Help you understand vibration monitoring, both how it should be done and what results from it really mean, either in the context of vibration damage claims or in helping to avoid them.
  • Independently analyze vibration data sets and give you an unbiased view of what they really show and whether the studies were carried out properly
  • Serve as a scientific consultant and peer reviewer of reports for vibration monitoring firms
  • Provide instruction on the science of vibration damage for attorneys, construction firms, governmental entities and others with an interest in or responsibility for construction projects.
  • Serve as an expert witness in vibration damage cases
  • Help attorneys in such cases prepare for deposition of opposing expert witnesses
  • Serve as an expert peer reviewer for vibration monitoring reports and results
  • We do not currently perform vibration monitoring. Our current consulting rates are $300 per hour of work, with a required retainer of $3000 which covers initial work. Reasonable and customary travel expenses are also billed to the client for any necessary travel. We do not bill for time spent in travel. Full terms are shown in our consulting agreement. The terms in the agreement are the governing ones.

    You can contact Dr. Zeigler through our Contact Us page or by e-mail to drzeigler@vibrationdamage.com. Initial consultations are free and without obligation for either party. The free Construction Vibration Damage Guide for Homeowners (CVDG) and the more technical and extensive CVDG Professional Edition provide a good introduction to our capabilities and knowledge.
