A structural inspection is the review of a home or building with a focus on the elements related to the foundation, framing, and overall structural condition.

If you are purchasing a new home or if you are in need of repairs on your current home, a structural home inspection can help you make informed decisions. Potential or active problems can be identified in your home’s structure which we document in a detailed report. Most importantly, we provide an objective opinion on the state of your home.
