One of the most efficient ways to ensure your home is on solid ground in Collingwood and surrounding areas is to schedule a foundation inspection.
The foundation of your home is a critical component to its structural integrity and security. We often don’t consider our home’s foundation because it is underneath our feet – but when we experience foundation problems, it can suddenly become a big concern. At Brick House Home Inspection Services, we feel one of the most efficient ways to ensure your home is on solid ground is to schedule a foundation inspection, so you feel confident your house is in good shape.
During a foundation inspection, we will look for foundation cracks, damaged walls and floors or other signs that the structural integrity of the home is compromised. If damage has occurred, this leaves your home’s foundation susceptible to sinking and cracking, which could lead to further problems. Depending on the type of foundation for the home, we will either enter the crawlspace under the home to examine the structures that are visible, such as piers, beams, underpinnings, or look at the outside of the home for indicators that the foundation has been damaged. If there are signs of damage, we will then enter the home to evaluate further, including cracks in the floors, walls, and ceilings. We may also take measurements to determine if the foundation is level.
While a foundation inspection may sound intimidating, most of the time, foundation repair is not needed. At Brick house Home Inspection Services, we will complete a thorough foundation inspection and discuss the details of our findings with you so you are fully informed. If it is determined there is a problem, our number one goal is to provide smart, simple solutions. We help clients in Collingwood, Ontario and surrounding areas make educated purchasing decisions and can recommend solutions if a defect is recognized.
