Structural Issues in a Home

December 7, 2016

Continuing with the Key Systems of the home series the next area is on potential structural issues with a home.  While these are less common it is still good to know what to look for because if there is a structural issues it is something you want to address.

Settlement crack or structural issue? - In Florida we see settlement cracks in homes and it is very common.  Slab on grade foundations settle and stucco siding shows the results.  These are what I call typical settlement cracks that can be treated by simply keeping them sealed up and painted.  Now a crack showing more than a 1/4 inch or more of space can be a potential structural issue which would need further evaluation from a structural engineer.  Again those these are not very common.

Footers - Footers are the main corners of a foundation and the biggest thing we don't want to see here is any major movement, cracking or issues in these areas.  If a footer is moving, you may have a structural issue and it will need to be corrected.

 

Trusses/Roofing - If Florida our roof systems are very important because we are in a hurricane state.  The types of potential structural issues you want to look for here is broken/cut/missing trusses or support beams in the attic area under the main roofing.  These types of defects can cause a roofing system to fail under a heavy storm load.  Though not very common it is definitely an area that is looked for in a inspection.  If your inspector is not venturing into the attic area you may want to look for someone that will do a more thorough job.
