Home Inspections & Foundation Inspections
Edmonton Home InspectionsOur team conducts thorough home inspections and will evaluate your foundation and speak with you about any issues your foundation has or that you may be at risk from. Then we can move forward with a plan of action designed to protect you and your home from any further foundation issues. You may not be sure your foundation needs repair. That said, it’s important to get any potential problems inspected by a professional. Here’s some signs you can look for:
- First and foremost, you may feel like your home is sloping. This could be a sign your foundation is unlevelled.
- Cracks in walls, ceilings, or floors of your home, doors that stick, sloping floors, and bowing walls.
- Unusual basement odours or dampness.
- Unsightly water stains on walls or floors.
- Pooling water after rainstorms or during spring melts.
