Home Inspection Structural Inspections Winnipeg

The backbone of any home is its structure. Foundation walls, footings, floors, roof framing, and interior walls form this backbone. Although these do not interest many property owners, a weak point in any of these areas can lead to movement, cracks, and other forms of distress. That’s why a regular evaluation of these components is very important.

Essentially, the best exterior and interior finishes will be disappointing if a property doesn’t have a sound structure. Even when a property has a properly built structure, poor maintenance, weathering, subsurface and groundwater movement, storm and ageing events can cause structural problems. A minor movement or crack can be a sign of a major structural problem. That’s why it’s reasonable to schedule a structural inspection on a regular basis.
