The House’s main purpose is to shelter and protect people from the different elements of nature like the heat of the sun and the chill of snow. But what if the structure itself poses grave danger to its occupants?
There’s just no other way around it; when one encounters structural issues at home and in public buildings, they have to be dealt with as soon as possible as they might cause more serious problems should the structure collapse. For instance, take a look at this article describing the building occupied by young people of the Boys & Girls Club in Salem:
It is no secret the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Salem has been looking for a new home for more than a decade.
The urgency of that search, or at least the immediate need for additional temporary space, heightened last week after part of the club’s Hawthorne Boulevard building was declared unsafe by the building’s owner, the Archdiocese of Boston.
While calling the problems “quite fixable,” the pastor of the Salem Catholic Collaborative said the archdiocese declared the top floors unsafe because of serious issues with the windows, along with flaking paint and ceiling stains.
“We have to act with an abundance of caution to assure child safety,” said the Rev. Daniel Riley, “and we are both morally responsible and legally responsible. We really need to assure child safety.
One way of making sure that your house is safe is by seeking the help of contractors. They could easily determine if a part of a house can be repaired or if it needs to be replaced entirely. As is the case of the kids’ club in Salem, the windows were discovered to be unstable and therefore, replacement windows in Salem are the best solution. For your home, you should also consider inspections to help determine your needs.
