Framing Inspection Services

Framing Inspections

Prior to insulation, call us to perform a framing inspection to ensure the house was framed properly per the design drawings. We inspect the framing structure on the basis of Code compliance, plan compliance, proper load transfer, and structural long term performance. After performing the framing inspection, we provide a report that lists the items that need correction. Subsequent re-inspections may be requested to ensure all of the items have been completed properly. A final “sign off” letter sealed by a professional engineer will be provided.

Pricing For Framing Inspections

A single oversight could cost several times more to repair than the cost of the inspection. Obviously the size of the house and complexity would dictate the cost of the inspection. Also, if several field changes require onsite analysis or if numerous mistakes were made that required design solutions, the cost of the inspection would increase. To get a “ballpark” idea, the price of the initial framing inspection is about a third of the design fee. The minimum inspection fee is $400. Please contact us for a more accurate estimate.

 

We are considering some renovations to our home and needed a structural review of the existing construction. IDE handled it with ease and at a very reasonable cost. From the initial phone call to the completed report, IDE was a pleasure to work with. The engineer crawled below and above, spent time listening to our plans, answered all questions, then delivered a highly detailed assessment and informative report within a couple of days. He also had some suggestions of firms to conduct the work. I highly recommend these folks!
