Unlike Renovations or Remodeling
Structural repairs is a construction process to bring your home up to acceptable safety standards. Load-bearing components for the
purpose of defining structural damage are defined as follows: Footings, pier columns and concrete foundation systems; beams;
girders; floor joists, sills, headers, lintels; columns; load-bearing walls & partitions walls; roof framing systems;basement slabs, or
any other parts of the premises that support the weight of the building.
Poor or Out-Dated Design, Termite & Water Damage are common causes of Structural Damage
Structural damage is sometimes caused by poor or under-design of the structure itself. Building codes, materials, and engineering
technology has changed over time. Therefore, some of the structural designs and materials that was used in older homes are no
longer adequate for home building or repairs today. Furniture, appliances, and even the occupants of homes are larger and
heavier than they were in the past. Age, improper spacing of support components, inadequate size or dimension of load carrying
supports, or improper locations of framing members will cause settlement, unevenness, or structural failures. The results of
inadequate architectural design of a structure is inevitable and sometimes take years to appear.
Unfortunately, it takes just a short amount of time for something as tiny as a termite or a leak to cause structural damage or ruin
your entire home. Termites are voracious destroyers of wood because of their ability to digest it. Small water leaks often go
undetected and, over time, the moisture damage causes buckling and the decay of walls, ceilings, sub-floors, joists, or beams.
Additionally, moisture often results in the growth of mold and mildew. We recommend fixing these problems as quickly as possible,
because mold spores can affect one's health and well-being.
