Residential Assessments
Many homes have full basements built in, and on, unstable soil. Seasonal soil changes and poor rain water management can cause basement walls to crack, leak, lean, and separate leaving the home without proper support and the basement unstable. But many things that look like significant distress can be well within the normal limits for a building's operating life and conditions. FES can help you assess your residence. We've conducted over 5,000 structural assessments and we know where to look for problems. Corrective action is often required before financing can be obtained. FES can provide certification within 48 hours.
