Foundation Inspections

The foundation is among the most vital elements of the structural stability of a house or commercial property. The foundation supports the weight of the structure and keeps it stable. Any wetness or structural quirks in the foundation could be a severe hazard and needs to be fixed as soon as possible.  The purpose of the foundation is to:

  • Bear the weight of the structure
  • Supports the structure due to severe weather
  • Protects from moisture and mold
