Structural Engineering Evaluations

Residential Structural Engineering Evaluations

Structural Engineering Evaluations

Homes of any age are subject over time to weather conditions, ground shifting, warping, and more. For this reason, Criterium-Hardy offers structural engineering evaluations.

Concerned with the structural integrity of your house? Or a house that you are purchasing? Typical concerns include:  Cracks in foundation walls, cracks in drywall, cracks in concrete slabs, sagging or uneven floors, chimneys or porches separating from main structures, temporary support structures, leaning retaining walls, cut or removed framing members, etc.  We will provide an evaluation of the house and a report detailing our findings and specific repair recommendations.

When do you need a structural engineering evaluation?

  • When there are cracks in the foundation or walls.
  • When there is bowing or sagging in the walls and roof.
  • Where there is carpenter ant, termite, or rot damage.
  • When an appraiser perceives a structural defect.
  • When a new home is under construction.
  • When a mortgage company/bank needs an engineer’s opinion before writing a loan.
  • When there is a concern about the structural integrity of the building or home.
  • When there is fire, flood, water or high wind damage.

If you suspect your home has any structural deficiency, contact Criterium Engineers to perform a structural engineering evaluation before a small problem becomes more serious.
