Structural Engineer and Home Inspection Dallas Fort Worth
TEC is well-known in the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex for providing accurate and reliable structural evaluations, foundation inspections and home inspections.
When should you call TEC?
- If you are considering buying a home
- When you are preparing to sell your home
- In the event that you notice cracks, unleveled flooring, or other signs of foundation settling
- If you are interested in proactively protecting your home or business’ foundation
All homeowners deserve an unbiased opinion on whether foundation repair is in their home’s best interest. Foundation repair companies specialize in lifting houses, whereas a structural engineer is trained to understand, predict and calculate the stability, strength, and rigidity of built structures.
If you are okay with spending thousands of dollars to lift your home and “see how it goes,” then call a repair company. If your objective is to fully comprehend the complexities of your home’s structure, foundation and surrounding soil, as well as the risks associated with installing piers, then you should call an independent Licensed Professional Engineer.
The engineers at TEC will perform a thorough evaluation of your home and provide you with a certified, verifiable engineer’s report. Within your report you will find specific recommendations from the engineer to resolve any concerns and provide suggestions for preventative maintenance to lessen the chance of future movement.
Remember, foundation repair is major surgery to a house.
You wouldn’t consent to open-heart surgery without a clear understanding of the procedure and consequent side effects. Sometimes trying to lift and repair your home can cause more damage than good. A knowledgeable Licensed Professional Engineer is the only person qualified to properly assess foundation concerns.
TEC Professional Home Inspectors, in addition to being licensed by the Texas Real Estate Commission, have undergone additional training under the supervision of our in-house engineers.
Additionally, TEC strives to go above and beyond the standards set by the Texas Real Estate Commission. Throughout the inspection, our professionals examine more than 600 components, taking images along the way, examining each component for structural soundness, proper function, and code compliance.
We understand that no home is perfect. Our intention is to provide peace of mind to help clients fully understand a home’s condition before committing to purchase.
Ultimately, by starting off with the right company, you will save money in the long run.
