Case 1: Unveiling Structural Issues – It’s All in the Process!

Upon closer inspection, you’ll notice tape over the tie-down anchor. This seemingly minor detail holds the key to understanding the underlying problem. Our structural inspector delves into the process, highlighting how a misstep in the construction process led to this structural issue. This case emphasizes the importance of scrutinizing each step to ensure the structural integrity of a home. This anchor was not installed prior to installing the moisture barrier/sheathing. For some reason, the anchor was installed after the moisture barrier/sheathing was installed and in the process the builder left out the anchor bolts that tie the tie-down anchor to the slab.
