Just like with residential properties, we also perform foundation inspections for commercial properties. Although not as common as residential foundation settlement, commercial structures can experience foundation movement. We see this a lot in the tilt up buildings that throughout Southern California. Most of the time it’s not the building itself that is moving, but the slab floors that move from excessive weight being applied or a high traffic forklift areas.
Not only do we deal with a lot of tilt up buildings, we also perform work with many property management companies to repair various settlement conditions throughout their properties that they manage. Keeping on top of these issues as a property management company can save the HOA you represent a ton of money down the road.
