Problem areas to observe include cracks, spalling, buckling, foundation shifting, corroded anchor bolts, and aging structures, to name a few. Common deficiencies and damage found in structural steel support structures consist of corrosion, impact and fire damage, overload, and missing bolts/nuts. In concrete, damages could come from carbonation, inadequate coverage, anchor bolt damage/corrosion, and compressor foundation cracking.
