When Do You Need a Foundation Inspection?

Here are some of the main reasons you should ask for a professional foundation inspection:

  • You’ve noticed a problem. This might be an uneven floor, a wall crack, a door that no longer opens and closes properly, or something else that seems suspicious.
  • Before buying a new home.
  • Before selling a home.
  • After an earthquake, flood, landslide, etc.
  • After something big hits your house.
  • As part of regular maintenance. Since foundation repairs can cost a lot of money, it’s best to find foundation issues early before they turn into big problems. There are two ways to do that: schedule regular foundation inspections and perform maintenance when necessary

How Foundation Inspections Work

During a foundation inspection, you will be asked if you’ve noticed any problems. In other words, why did you call us and request a foundation inspection? Your home’s foundation will then be visually inspected inside and out to answer questions such as:

Has the foundation moved?

How’s the drainage around the foundation?

Are there signs of differential settlement?

If there’s a crawl space, what’s the condition inside?

Is there any water, visible mould, or wood rot?

Most foundation inspections take 1-2 hours to complete. If we find something, we’ll write up a report detailing the nature of the problem, what repairs are recommended, and provide a cost estimate.

DIY vs. Hiring a Professional Foundation Inspection

While a DIY homeowner foundation inspection won’t be as thorough as one conducted by a professional, that doesn’t mean it’s without value. Foundation issues spotted early cost less to repair. Therefore, if you’re a homeowner, you should know the common signs of a foundation problem and be on the lookout for them. If you see something suspicious, contact us today and ask for an inspection.

What Are The Common Signs Of Foundation Problems?

Common signs of a foundation problem include cracks in walls, floors, and ceilings, doors and windows that don’t open or close properly, uneven floors, stair step cracks in brick or masonry, and more.

How we perform foundation inspections.


One of our knowledgeable inspectors will draw a scaled diagram of the home and take floor elevation measurements after thoroughly inspecting the property inside and out.


We only move to step two if an issue with the foundation is found during the inspection. Our inspector will design a repair plan specific to the property and the issues facing it. They’ll then provide you with a scaled CAD drawing of your home, a full report on the findings, and a suggested repair plan based on those findings will be provided.


We will engage any other professionals that maybe required, such as Geotech and or council and complete to plan.
