Knowing the Signs of True Structural Damage Versus Non-Issues

This is an excellent article written by a licensed professional engineer, state-licensed home inspector, and state-licensed home builder.  Home inspectors, often worried about their liability, will draw attention to minor fractures and cracks in parts of the home that actually have no bearing on the structure and/or foundation.  This article reveals that causes for concern over the safety of the home (structure and foundation) will be very obvious to the naked eye.  It also explains the different signs of superstructure and foundation damage and offers advice on how to handle such issues.  Be prepared for the results of your home’s inspection.  Knowing what is actually a cause for concern versus what is not can mean a sale closed sooner for you.
