Foundation Elevation Mapping

Foundation Elevation Mapping allows for the visualization of relative foundation movement.  The process for developing a foundation elevation map includes:

  • Sketching the major portions of the foundation
  • Determining relative elevations, considering floor finishes, using a high precision altimeter
  • Plotting the relative elevatoin points on a drawing

Engineers use Foundation Elevation Mapping in conjunction with visual observations of distress indicators during a walk-through survey to determine the performance of the foundation system and identify any significant deficiencies, defects and and/or repairs necessary.

All Criterium-Williams Home Inspections and Structural Inspections include a Foundation Elevation Survey
