STRUCTURAL SYSTEMS

If you are thinking about buying a house, this is the report for you. Structural inspections can identify any major problems with your future home.

A full detailed analysis on how well built-in structures will hold up over time; what repairs may be needed or defects that should get fixed right away. Areas covered during the inspection are:

Foundation

Foundation problems are often the cause of structural failures, and one must identify them promptly. We typically look out for cracks in a foundation's structure, as well any forms or defects which compromise its integrity such as rot or earthquakes-damaged foundations. The damage done by these events may be irreversible if left unchecked, so it is important to spot potential issues before they become serious enough that costly repairs are needed.

Severe cracking

Cracks can indicate that there is a severe structural failure within the property. However, this all depends on the type of crack and its severity. Some cracks are purely cosmetic. Our team will help in identifying potential issues on time.

Roofing

During the roof inspection, we evaluate the condition of the entire roof. Possible defects that the assessment may uncover are:
• Damaged roof shingles
• Problem with eavestroughs and downspouts
• Signs of leaks
• Flashing defects

Sloped floors

Most homes have sloping floors, but this is usually caused by the wooden joists that hold up your floor. While a small amount of bending is natural in old homes, excess bending could be a more significant problem.

Bowing, leaning, or bulging walls

Like sloped floors, uneven walls are usually symptomatic of structural problems in your house. If these issues are left unchecked for a extended time, they can cause considerable damage to your home, resulting in a wall collapsing.
