Structural Repairs, are not a common concern for many home owners and often most people tend to not know as much about the industry or the methods of Structural Repairs available.
Most have required the local builder, plumber or electrician to carry out some form of repairs, but when cracks appear and the words ‘structural damage’ ‘structural failure’ ‘could fall down’ are heard panic sets in.
