Since the structure of a building is its skeletal system, in which different parts work together to keep the building upright and able to withstand certain pressures, stresses and loads; when a weakness occurs in the structure, you want it evaluated. Nittany Design can review any structural questions you may have so that you can have confidence in your building.
Or you may be repurposing an area of a building, and it will now be taking on a heavier load. We can evaluate the current area and the necessary requirements for the new load.
Some of the types of structural review questions that we see…
- Foundation wall cracks, settlement or movement
- Interior wall cracks and framing movement
- Undersized and damaged framing members
- Roof failures
- Flood, fire or other damage
