What is a Seawall Inspection?

This inspection analyzes the underwater conditions of seawalls. A professional diver checks the seawall or near water structure’s elevation, grading, soil properties, depth, materials, exposure to hydraulic pressure and levels, stability, and condition. The inspection also includes a comprehensive report, photographs, and video so the client is up to date with every step of the process.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a structural building inspection?
As the name suggests, structural building inspections are carried out by a qualified and certified building inspector to determine the structural integrity of a building. It is typically a pre-purchase process that involves the virtual assessment of a building to get a detailed report of the structural condition of the building. A thorough inspection can reveal hidden problems that may not be visible to the naked eye, such as cracks, leaks, or other signs of damage. By identifying these issues early on, property owners can take proactive measures to address them before they become more serious and costly to repair.
Why do I need a structural building inspection?

A structural building inspection is a crucial step in ensuring the safety and longevity of your property. It involves a thorough examination of the building's foundation, roof, walls, and other structural components to identify any potential issues that may compromise its integrity.

How much does a structural engineer inspection cost?

When it comes to ensuring structure safety and integrity, a building engineer inspection is a crucial step. The cost of such an inspection can vary depending on several factors, including the size and complexity of the building, as well as the location and experience of the engineer. Not just this, it also depends on whether it’s a residential or commercial structural engineer inspection. However, it is important to remember that investing in a thorough inspection can save you thousands of dollars in potential repairs or liability issues down the line. A skilled engineer can identify any potential structural issues before they become major problems, giving you peace of mind and potentially increasing the value of your property. So while the cost of an inspection may seem like an added expense, it is truly an investment in the long-term safety and security of your building.

What if there are issues found during the inspection?

If issues are found during the inspection, it’s important to stay calm and assess the situation objectively. It’s natural to feel anxious or frustrated, but remember that identifying problems early on can save you from costly repairs down the line. Take the time to understand the severity of the issue and its potential impact on your property. Discuss your options with a qualified professional, and don’t be afraid to ask questions or seek a second opinion.
