We purchased a home in June that has some slanted floors on the main floor. The basement ceiling appears straight (not bowing in), but we would like a professional opinion (foundation specialist, structural engineer) to assess the flooring and determine if it is structural and needs to be fixed, or is cosmetic and/or not going to impact the house.
We would like someone who can a) diagnose if it is structural or not, and b) if it is an issue, can give a possible solution and approx. cost.
Require a contractor to replace and move a structural beam in a 75 year old semi-detached home. Not seeking to raise the floor - simply looking to properly support the structure. Have structural drawings and engineers report to follow. Steel beam with 3 columns required.
Floor plate is approximately 28 x 18.
To inspect repair made by builder on new house. Home warranty passed repair claiming it is acceptable because water is no longer seen visibly entering the basement window/wall. However, water does travel inside brick wall and exits outside exterior brick (one brick is wet after rain storm). Builder caulked only and even chalked deck panels to exterior brick wall because basement window is located beneath a deck. Is this a temporary fix? Water test conducted by Warranty inspector revealed no water present in basement but water was seen exiting from one exterior brick that was never watered physically with a garden hose. This brick is directly horizontal from the basement window located approximately 10 feet away. Prior inspection and previous water tests conducted water was seen entering through window frame casing and a puddle of water was present on the floor traveling beneath the drywall. New home with a fully finished basement. Is this acceptable? Will mole be present beneath drywall in basement?
Second issue: sloped floor in kitchen. Tarion measured and said it was in the acceptable tolerance. You could physically feel the floor dip when walking on it. ? It is a newly built multi level home ?
My 130 year old house has slanted floors on the 1st and 2nd floor that I want to fix. I require a structural engineer to inspect the basement/joists to ensure there are no structural issues before I proceed to level the flooring 1st and 2nd levels.

I have a crack in the concrete wall leading up the stairs from the garage that needs to be repaired. It is not part of the house foundation but I have been getting quotes of $15000 to $30000 from concrete contractors. I need an independant opinion from an engineer so I am not continuing to be jerked around.
Removing dining room / hallway wall in a semi to open up area and need a structural engineer to evaluate before proceeding.
All plaster and lath are removed in hallways exposing the whole area. 2x10 joists span 16 feet from brick to brick so do not anticipate that wall is load bearing but there is a beam below in the basement that roughly lines up with hallway. The wall may (or did) provide some support for joists which end at a stair well beam although I think the studs have shrunk since there are gaps at the top plate!
Looking for someone to come by and take a look at some structural issues in our home. We suspect that a new I-beam will need to be installed in our living room, as floor is sagging in our upstairs, due to the removal of a load bearing wall years ago.
We live in the beaches.
Consider the following...
Existing: (2) semi detached homes - bungalows / each w/2 rental units - main and basement.
Idea: top up both semis to provide a 3rd rental unit for each semi
Each new unit to have 2 bedrooms/washroom/living room/kitchen.
Would like to maximize daylight.
Rooflines are important to me. I realize there will be building code limitations.
