Why get a Load Bearing Wall Structural Evaluation?
“…Peace of mind is by far the most frequent reason for getting a structural inspection…”
Buyers, sellers, or investors typically use these inspections to determine any future repair costs resulting from failed structural systems. A structural inspection done by a licensed engineer may reveal hidden performance issues before they become structural integrity problems.
Our Load Bearing Wall evaluations strictly conform to the following guidelines:
