We're using this over-the-top photo to illustrate a point - home inspections are "non-invasive." That means the inspector will not be taking things apart, moving furniture and personal items around, and poking holes in your walls, even little ones. The inspector should open things such as cabinet and closet doors, crawl space hatch covers, and so forth, if they are able to be opened. The idea is not to damage or destroy things while doing the inspection. Call us - we'll be happy to explain the home inspection process to you and answer any other questions you may have. We Do It All - Inside, Outside, Attic to Crawl!
What's going on outside can affect what happens inside the crawlspace. Here I'm indicating a low spot on the bottom of the foundation. The ground here needs to be built up so that water can't get under the foundation and into the crawlspace. Just one of the many things our eagle-eyed inspectors look for when we do your inspection. We do great home inspections that provide peace of mind!
This was a crawl space on a job we did last week. Just a little bit tight, but I still snaked through where I could! The good thing was we were able to give the buyer some peace of mind about what was under his (soon to be) new home. All in a day's work for the Crawl Space Junkie!
Here's some brown fungus-like stuff I found on a floor joist during a recent crawl space inspection. The joist did not display any signs of wood rot and the moisture meter did not indicate a high level of moisture. Even so, we suggested the homeowner have it checked out by a mold remediation expert. This could easily have been missed if the inspector was in a hurry. At Premier Inspections LLC, we take the time needed to do the job right - for every customer, every time.
