Special Inspections/structural inspection
Buildings that are not considered to be "Threshold" fall into this category. We can provide inspection services on the future building shell / envelope or just the individual components as required by the Building Department.
We live in a region where the weather elements can wreak havoc on our oceanfront properties. The extreme heat, humidity and salty ocean breezes cause corrosion and deterioration to the envelope of the building, which can compromise its structural integrity. Our staff provides full concrete restoration inspection services on building facades and exterior balconies to quantify deficiencies, such as spalling concrete, corroded reinforcing or water intrusion. In addition to repair details, we supply full specifications to restore building damages
