Safety Matters

Exposed electrical wires can ruin your entire day; power and natural gas systems have fire hazard potential.
Trip and fall possibilities are identified; important for both the young and old. We'll identify potential ice forming areas – drainage is important here. We locate fire hazards, smoke and carbon monoxide detectors.

You need to know your structure is safe and sound. We evaluate the foundation, the roof, load bearing walls and floors.
