You’ve finally found a piece of property that just might be the one for you. You even go so far as to hire an inspection company to give the building a thorough examination from top to bottom looking into every nook and cranny. Once you get the report back from your inspection company, you see something unexpected: your inspector points out a strange crack, damage to a beam, or some other unexpected item of concern. Your inspector then suggests having a structural engineer take a look at it, to determine if it’s of any structural significance. That’s the time to reach out to a Professional Engineer to do a Visual Structural Inspection focusing on the specific area(s) of concern. This inspection will let you know if you have a serious structural issue on your hands or not, as well as give you recommendations on how to address it. A Professional Engineer’s signed and sealed report is an excellent tool to have when making such an important investment.
