Structural Inspection in The Flagstaff Area

Protecting Your Investment

Your home’s structural integrity is paramount. A strong foundation and sound structural components are essential for a safe and secure living environment. A comprehensive structural inspection from Aspen Home Inspections meticulously examines the core elements that hold your home together. This inspection identifies any existing issues or potential problems that could arise in the future.

Why Get a Structural Inspection?

A structure inspection can help uncover potential problems and save you money on future repairs down the road. It also identifies areas that may need preventative maintenance to prolong the life of your home.

  • Peace of Mind: Knowing the condition of your home’s structure gives you peace of mind and allows you to budget for future maintenance.
  • Safety Concerns: Our inspection identifies potential safety hazards like structural weaknesses, cracks, or foundation problems.
  • Informed Decisions: If you’re buying a home, a structural inspection empowers you to negotiate repairs or request a lower price if significant issues are found.
  • Increased Home Value: Addressing structural concerns can prevent future problems and potentially increase the value of your home.

What Our Structural Inspection Includes:

  • Footings and Foundation: We inspect the foundation, including the footings (base of the foundation), for cracks, water damage, leaks, or signs of settlement. We also check for proper drainage around the foundation.
  • Foundation Walls: We thoroughly examine the foundation walls for cracks, bulges, or bowing, which could indicate structural problems. We look for signs of water damage or efflorescence (mineral deposits) that may suggest moisture issues.
  • Floor Sills: Floor sills connect the foundation to the framing of your home. We inspect them for rot, insect damage, or cracks that could compromise structural integrity.
  • Beams and Joists: Beams and joists support the floors and ceilings throughout your home. We check for signs of sagging, cracks, rot, or insect damage that could indicate structural concerns.
  • Crawl Space Conditions (if present): If your home has a crawlspace, we’ll assess its overall condition. This includes checking for moisture issues, ventilation problems, and the presence of mold or mildew. We’ll also look for structural issues like cracked or sagging crawl space piers or floor joists.

What You Get After Your Interior Inspection:

Detailed Inspection Report: Following the inspection, you’ll receive a comprehensive report outlining our findings. This report includes:

  • Clear descriptions of any identified issues.
  • Photos for better understanding of the problem areas.
  • Recommendations for repairs or further evaluation by structural engineers (if needed).

With our detailed structural inspection, you gain valuable insight into the health of your home’s foundation and core structure. This empowers you to make informed decisions about maintaining and protecting your investment.
