One of AGPIC’s highest customer satisfaction rated inspector’s, Arman Shahenian described his findings during property inspections in Glendale. He cautions home buyers and owners to be advised with the risks their property may have if their property was built during or before the 1940’s. His findings show that homes built before the 1940’s most commonly don’t have bolted foundations. Bolted foundations  were created in the mid 1900’s because this system of foundational structure provides safety against earthquakes. If a property doesn’t have bolted foundation, it is a safety issue for both the occupants and the stand point of the property.

The Kardashians, the Osbournes, and Justin Beiber! The upscale city of Calabasas, CA has become the place for the hot, young and rich, according to Curbed LA News.

The CommonsMalibu Creek State ParkLeonis Adobe Museum are some of the destination spots near Calabasas that residents and tourists return to time after time. The residential and commercial properties in Old Town Calabasas, built in the early 1900’s add to the old-time charm and make this city pizazz. With these characteristics, Calabasas properties do tend to come with structural problems arising from their old age. In addition, due to the age of the properties, cracks in the walls, cracked or uneven floors exhibit symptoms of possible foundation problems, according to Today’s Home Owner.

Along with the age of the properties, the drought in the late 1950’s can have already damage homes and buildings. Cracking in the foundation, walls, etc. could have occurred due to the parched soil, according to CityofCalabasas.comPlumbing issues are another common problem that occurs with older properties. These issues may also come to exist because many properties tend to be on the hillsides, since Calabasas falls in the hills west of San Fernando Valley.

Advanced Group Property Inspectors will identify these issues during the inspection from both the foundational and structural point of view.
