Foundation inspections are an important part of home ownership in the San Francisco Bay Area. This is due to the fact that much of the housing stock is older and may have been constructed with different methods and techniques than modern foundations.
This is in addition to the fact that the San Francisco Bay Area is prone to earthquakes. Most are small but we always want to be ready for the larger seismic events as well. All of this, including the varying soil substrates that homes have been built on provide for cracking of foundation walls, uplift of soils, and generally settling that occurs on all homes.
Our foundation inspections can help you get prepared and give you a better understanding of the current condition of your foundation. We look for cracks, separations, efflorescence, seismic retrofitting and many other items. We work hard to provide you with contextual understanding of the results and provide you with information on what to do next.
