Engineering Services Load Bearing Wall

One of the most common kinds of Residential Remodels and Commercial Building restructure is removing one or more load bearing walls to create a more open space. While it is no small task to take down a load bearing wall, it gives your home a more open layout and makes it feel bigger and freer inside.

While sometimes a load bearing wall can be identified based on its location, it often takes a licensed engineer to determine if the wall is load bearing or not and if it is, how to safely remove it while still keeping your house structurally or commercial building sound and safe for an earthquake. A structural engineer can make the determination from either an onsite evaluation or by looking at your home’s or commercial buildings original blueprints that may be on record with your city’s building department. The accidental demolition of a load-bearing wall without consulting a licensed structural engineer can cause a lot of damage, not the least of which is the safety and integrity of your family’s home or commercial building.
