FOUNDATION/UNDER-FLOOR AREAS Areas of the foundation and/or structural components of the building were inaccessible because they were installed at or below grade level, and/or behind walls. Areas concealed from view by any means and assessing the structural integrity of a building is excluded from this report. The inspectors observations take into account the age of the building and the construction standards of that time, older buildings may lack many of the modern framing and seismic connections presently being utilized. Foundations may have curing cracks that do not represent a structural problem. All concrete experiences some degree of cracking due to shrinkage in the drying process. If large cracks are present along with movement, we recommend further evaluation by a structural engineer, foundation specialist or a geologist. All exterior grades should allow for surface and roof water to be diverted away from the foundation system. All maintenance, repairs or corrections should be made by specialist's in the appropriate trade using approved methods.
