What is a Structural Inspection/Assessment?

Whether you are buying real estate or already own one, property ownership is one of the most important investments that people make in their lifetime, and maintaining this investment is critical. Any ignored problems can be developed into a costly repair.

Typical electrical or mechanical systems of a house have an average life span of 10 years and can be replaced with reasonable cost. However, structural deficiencies due to improper design, construction, or poor maintenance can be much costly to address. Cracked foundation or walls, sagging floors, uneven foundation settlement, improper drainage are a few to name.


Structural Inspection services help you identify these problems and find a solution before it is too late.


Why Consulting with a Licensed Professional Engineer?

The word of wisdom in buying a used car is to have it inspected by an independent mechanic for hidden problems or defects. Because the mechanic is not under any incentive to suggest unnecessary repairs and does not benefit whether the deal goes through or not.


When you are planning for a house renovation, extension, or purchasing a real estate property, you need to consult with a Licensed Professional Engineer. As an independent third party, without any incentive from contractors or real estate agents, Engineers can give you unbiased advice so you can make better decisions.


What is Home Buyer Inspection?

Home Buyer Inspection is a Non-Destructive, visual inspection of building components. We try to visually spot potential problems, without breaking anything, and help you make informed decisions, weighing risks and rewards. If problems are found, we carefully document them and recommend further evaluation or repairs. 

Who are we?

We are a team of Licensed Professional Engineers, with the main focus on the Design and Planning of Residential and Commercial buildings. We are in a constant learning cycle of exploring existing and new materials and methods of construction and see how they work in real life, through the Design, Construction, and Inspection process. 


As building designers, we understand how different construction methods and materials behave in various circumstances and reflect this knowledge in our Inspection/Assessment reports.
