Before you upgrade the Balcony with a Jacuzzi ?
An approval of a building engineer is relevant to you if you are interest in upgrading your sun terrace. If in the past you would suffice with only a table and chairs in your balcony, today you want to use your balcony for more than that; however, a jacuzzi or small pools may add a substantial load your balcony. Unlike the addition of garden furniture, tiles or a gas grill, water weighs a lot, and this fact may risk you, your neighbors and your surrounding. Before you add such weight to a balcony, you need a professional examination of an engineer that its purpose is to examine whether the conditions of the balcony are suitable for such an addition, whether the balcony can carry such a weight and whether you meet the terms of the Planning and Building Law and of the regulations and etc.
When a good neighborliness turns into a neighbors’ feud
When you live in a condominium it is obviously important to nurture good neighborliness with all the tenants in the building. The accommodation in a condominium sets quite a few challenges, especially since each tenant in the building has different needs and desires. For example: there are cases in which one neighbor makes changes in his asset within the course of an extensive renovation. More than once, a tenant who is renovating his apartment may take down a supportive pillar or beam without the knowledge of the other tenants and the neighboring apartments, as well as the entire building in certain cases, may be damaged because of that. Such damages may even result in the collapse of the building. We can offer you in such cases a comprehensive and thorough examination by an engineer that will preserve your safety and your interests as holders of an asset in a building.
Are you safe in your house? An inspection of the structure’s safety
One of the inspections that are most identified with building engineers is the inspection of the stability of the building, an inspection that is not only visual, but it is also done by smart technological measures. Despite the serge of construction in Israel, there are still old buildings that were built decades ago according to incomplete standards and old methods. While there are buildings that pass the test of time, there are those that do not. If there is an issue that no one is willing to gamble on it, it is the issue of safety, and here the engineer enters the picture. In a stability inspection the building undergoes a variety of tests, when the motivation is to examine whether the building is in fact habitable and it isn’t dangerous or puts the surrounding at risk. A confirmation of a building engineer will be given only after a profound inspection, which will prove that the building met all the required standards.
The report that the engineer will produce for you will include all the results of the inspection, including the various defects he may have found. Therefore, if you are interested in strengthening your structure, you may do so with the help of the building engineer’s report, which will specify what is the strengthening that is needed, what is its urgency and etc.
Defects in a new apartment? Is there something like that?
Many assume that there is no chance to find defects in new apartments, which were submitted by a contractor. This is not true. Apartments that are submitted by contractors have more than once a large scale of serious construction defects. Alongside the defects in the visual and aesthetic level, there are also defects in the systematic-safety level. An engineer on our behalf will inspect the asset from top to bottom with advanced professional and technological equipment in order to trace as many defects as possible. If you are interested in inspecting for defects, the amount of the structure’s stability or you wish to examine the possibility of adding a jacuzzi to the balcony? We will be happy to schedule a personal consultation meeting with you. Address us today, don’t wait for tomorrow’s disaster.
