Crawlspace Inspection and Repair
Crawlspace inspection and repair is something you have to watch out for. Crawlspace repairs are very nuisanced and based on what is typical and what is not typical. If it is not in the report be very hesitant about ‘repairing it.’ In todays world there is a new industry based on changing the orginal intention of the crawlspace from an area that drys out in between rains to one that is always dry. This is sometimes warranted but often times is not needed. So if a company shows up and says that a large amount of money is needed for repairs than think twice before writing that check. For major repairs always get more than one quote. Again check with your home inspector for a list of contractors.

Foundation Repair Mobile AL
Foundation Repairs are something that needs to be done correctly when the problem is serious. However, it is hard to know when you are being sold something or you actually have a problem. The home inspector has no dog in the fight and is a third party hired professional so they can be trusted. Contractors on the other hand have an angle to be played. Some of them are certainly good but sometimes some of them can be good but sometimes they try and sell repairs whether they need to be done or not. This can lead to a signifcant downside as you are out money and then you have possible disclosure issues when you go and resale the house. Ask your inspector for a list of trusted foundation pros. This is something that should be left to chance when so much money is on the line.
