A structural inspection – or engineering – is the review of a home or building with a focus on the elements related to the foundation, framing, and overall structural condition.

If you are purchasing a new home or if you are in need of repairs on your current home, a structural home inspection can help you make informed decisions. Potential or active problems can be identified in your home’s structure which we document in a detailed report. Most importantly, we provide an objective opinion on the state of your home and cost estimates.

Home Inspection FAQ’s

A full home inspection can often take several hours. During this time, your inspector will be taking notes and documenting their observations. Afterwards, we provide you with the necessary information and documentation you need in order to make a purchase or repair decision.

Excluding cosmetics, inspectors look at everything that would indicate structural issues the home. This includes unlevel floors, noticeable cracks in walls, a sagging roof, damage to foundation walls, and more.

Your report will contain notes and summaries of our findings which will be essential in determining your next steps for your home. Additionally, an inspection is not a pass/fail evaluation, but rather a list of potential issues or necessary repairs.

Structural inspections are generally not required for loan or purchase approval, however it is recommended to get one. Forgoing an inspection means risking thousands of dollars in repairs that could have been prevented.
