Walls, Floors and Ceilings Inspection Winnipeg
Walls, floors, and ceilings are important functional, cosmetic, and structural features of any building. However, these features can hide serious structural issues that may eventually explode into full-blown problems. That’s why it’s wise to schedule a walls, floors, and ceilings inspection on a regular basis. TrueView Home Inspections performs thorough inspection of the walls, ceilings, and floors of any building. We are a team of accredited home inspectors in Winnipeg and rural areas of Manitoba with a vast industry experience and a sterling reputation.
Generally, walls support other parts of a building. When buying a home, many people ask whether the wall can be removed or it is a must stay. Our inspectors will tell you whether a wall is removable and partition or if it is load bearing. We also check walls for areas that appear to be load bearing and parts that have been removed or altered. That’s important because this should be done with proper structural design and expert workmanship.
We inspect ceilings for leaks from the roof or plumbing. We also check your ceilings carefully to ensure that they have been installed safely and properly. Old, heavy plaster ceilings pose risks when worn out or cracked. In some cases, ceilings have vermiculite insulation. This can have asbestos, unsafe electrical connections, or even hide old knob-and-tube wiring. Our inspectors will check for such issues and recommend the most appropriate corrective measures.
Generally, floors are inspected carefully for unevenness and sagging. An uneven floor can indicate a serious foundation problem. However, we also check floors for other issues like slanting and general structural issues. We also inspect basement floors for moisture. We pull back carpeted areas especially outside the corners. Our inspectors check for cupping or buckling in laminate or wood floors.
Generally, the most crucial parts of a building are between the floors, walls, and ceilings. And, some people assume that these areas can be inspected with a single, naked eye look. Nevertheless, some issues on these parts are signs of larger, possible problems in the making. That’s why you should schedule regular home inspection appointments.
