Oil Spills and Structural Damage

It is well-known that a major oil spill like the 2010 Deepwater Horizon spill can cause extensive damage to marine life. However, not everyone understands the severe damage that an oil spill can cause neighboring structures. In addition to negatively impacting marine-based businesses by destroying ocean life, oil spills can cause serious structural damage to the buildings along the coast line, including residences and businesses.

The costs of an oil spill are hard to estimate, but they can quickly skyrocket for both homeowners and business owners if structural repairs and replacements are necessary.
