We are able to provide a foundation inspection when you would like to ensure that your home is on solid ground in Wasaga Beach.
Because your home’s foundation is beneath your feet, you probably don’t think often about what an important purpose it serves. In reality, the foundation of a home is a critical component for structural integrity and security, which means having foundation problems is a big cause for concern. At Brick House Home Inspection Services, we are able to provide a foundation inspection when you would like to ensure that your home is on solid ground in Wasaga Beach, Ontario.
When we come out to a home for a foundation inspection, we look for several important things, including foundation cracks, damaged walls and floors, or other signs that the structural integrity of the home is compromised. A damaged foundation leaves your home susceptible to sinking, cracking, and moisture problems that may be even more difficult to manage.
During our foundation inspection, we will enter either through the home’s crawlspace or look at the outside of the home and examine any visible structures, such as the piers, beams, and underpinnings. Depending upon our initial findings, we may enter a home to check for further damage, including cracks in the floors, walls, and ceilings. Measurements to determine whether the foundation is level may also be an important step.
The good news is that a foundation inspection will give you all the information you need to know whether the structure of a home is in good condition. Most of the time, foundation repair is not needed, and at Brick House Home Inspection Services, we are happy to discuss our findings once the inspection is complete. We can also recommend solutions if a defect is recognized. Contact us today to learn more about how we can assist you.
