In this study, structural defects of existing 709 reinforced concrete (RC) buildings in Eskisehir Province were represented. Structural defects such as gaps between adjacent buildings, strong beam-weak column, mezzanine floor, short column, corner column, discontinuous frame, anchorage beams, long span, segregation, corrosion, inconvenient column/beam lateral reinforcement, low concrete strength and inconvenient steel reinforcement were determined in the study. It was determined that %35 of existing buildings have discontinuous frame, %16 of them have long span problem. It was also observed that nearly %40 of the buildings have no column/beam lateral reinforcement and %70 of them have inadequate gaps.
