Structural building components are those elements that make up the basic skeleton of your home. These can be made of wood or steel and are inclusive of the roof trusses, the joists, the I-beams and the flooring.
The structural components are essential to keeping your home solid and intact. Things such as termite damage and water problems can compromise the integrity of these beams, trusses and joists, causing your floor or roof to sag and, in extreme cases, part of your home to collapse. Sometimes, also, ill-conceived remodeling will damage or compromise a structural beam without the home owner realizing it. The home inspector will make sure that the structural components are intact and that they haven't been damaged or compromised by weather or other elements.
