It can be alarming and unsettling for owners or occupiers of properties if they have concerns regarding the safety of a building. 

Cracking of walls and ceilings, sloping floors, leaning walls or sagging roofs, for instance, can all be signs of structural movement and causes for concern.  They may have recently occurred or you have noticed they have got worse. 

It can be distressing for owners or occupiers if you are unsure how severe this problem is, or possibly how safe it is for you and your family to live in the house.  Alternatively, an owner may need guidance on whether tenants can remain in a property or workers can continue to use a workspace.   As experienced structural engineers, Structures-Made-Easy can provide guidance on such matters and offer confirmation of issues, explanations and reassurance.

Conditions such as these can occur gradually as buildings deteriorate with age, damp or rain has caused timbers to rot, or due to subsidence or perhaps a part of the building is no longer being able to provide the support it once did.  Alternatively, it may also be due to some recent accidental damage, a tree falling onto a wall perhaps.  

Other professionals in the construction industry such as surveyors, builders or architects may give advice on such matters but unfortunately their advice cannot always be relied upon.  For that reliable advice, you will need a structural engineer.

Structures-Made-Easy would visit your property to gather information on your building and the surroundings.  We would then produce a written report describing why the situation has arisen, its severity and giving outline descriptions of the next steps or what remedial works might be required.  It may be further investigations are necessary and we would indicate their nature.  We will often be able to give initial guidance whilst we are at the property, which we have seen can provide great comfort.
