Points of interest for each foundation inspection

We work to examine every detail of your property during a foundation inspection. Important points that we assess includes:

Observation of topographic features.

This includes considering how the earth around your property may affect your foundation.

Sloping.

This involves examining adjacent hillsides and slopes may affect the condition of the foundation. We also observe what kind of effects property features such as a nearby retaining wall and wall drainage devices are having on the foundation.

Water features and drainage.

Moisture content affects the soil of a foundation. We take into account the roles of surface drains, irrigation systems, how rainfall collects around the property, if water is expelled over a slope, if yards and gardens are graded to allow water to naturally flow away from foundation footings, and other moisture related factors. We also consider seasonal factors and observe how seasonal shifts may alter the moisture content of the soil.

Slab condition.

Evaluation the concrete slab to assess its size and how it may be moving or settling. We correlate this with observations of walls, ceilings, floors, doors, and windows, using cracks, fractures, uneven features, and irregularities, in order to determine how the foundation may be affecting the concrete slab.

Soil.

We review and examine available soil reports, and determine if soil expansion is present. We also review available grading plans, and other repair documentation to assess your foundation in the greatest possible detail.
