Foundation Inspections for Real Estate Transactions in Los Angeles
Real Estate Foundation Assessments You Can Trust
Anyone looking to purchase (or sell) property—most likely the biggest investment you’ll make in your lifetime—should have a foundation inspection & repair expert evaluate the property, to ensure it is structurally sound and to avoid hidden costs if an issue is found. A declining foundation can cost many thousands of dollars and adversely affect upgrades planned for the interior.
The unique geology and climate of Southern California means that seismic activity, ground settling and erosion are inevitable. That’s why relying solely on a quick review by a general home inspector is not enough. The job of the general home inspector is to provide the client with a better understanding of the property's condition, as inspected at the time of the inspection. But they are not foundation or structural specialists.
Because the entire structure is supported by the foundation, you want to ensure that it is in acceptable condition. Prior to purchasing a property, therefore, a detailed foundation assessment will ensure peace of mind.
If you’re buying or selling a house – or are a realtor for either party – and have any concerns at all about the foundation, drainage, slope conditions, etc., call Alpha Structural to schedule an assessment by California’s most innovative foundation specialists. We will explain everything regarding the current state of the property in an easy-to-understand way. We provide an evaluation of the structure for the agent and the client, so they can make their own educated decision before moving forward in the real estate transaction.
Our foundation inspection fee covers:
- Foundation assessment to evaluate integrity.
- Assessment of the home’s perimeter to locate moisture-related concerns (drainage).
- Assessment of the structure's interior to identify cracks, floor unevenness or other signs of structural issues.
