ASHI Home Inspectors - Foundation Repairs (Reading, PA)

Attention Home Inspectors in Reading, PA & surrounding! 

Foundations are one of the biggest concerns our clients can have during a Home Inspection. As Home Inspectors, we need to be able to inform our clients on what their repair options and costs might be. 

Don't miss the Keystone ASHI Home Inspectors meeting on Monday, May 2, 2011 where we'll be discussing Foundation Repairs!

 

 

As a Home Inspector in Reading & surrounding, I have clients that want to know if a certain crack is "OK" or perhaps they don't see the foundation wall is bulging until I point it out.  Just this year, I was inspecting a home where the right side was literally sinking into the ground and splitting the home!  The buyer walked away from that deal, but not before being fully informed of his options!

When foundation issues come up during a home inspection, it's important to be educated on the various types of foundation repairs out there and give the client an idea of what the cost to cure the issue might be.  This will give them peace-of-mind in purchasing the home, renegotiating the deal, or walking away.  

At this Monday's meeting, you'll learn more about repairs for Sunken Foundations and other Foundation Repairs such as Underpinning, Carbon Fiber, Tie Backs, Steel Braces, Reinforcement Walls, and more.

 

The ASHI Home Inspectors meeting will be at the Inn at Reading in Reading, PA on Monday, 5/2/11. The Inn at Reading is located at 1040 North Park Rd in Reading, PA.

 

The Business Meeting starts at 5:30pm but ASHI Home Inspectors & guests start showing up for Social time around 5pm.  Dinner is served at 6pm and our speaker, Andrew Gray with Keystone Foundation Repair comes on at 6:45pm.

David, great information regarding the foundation.    I recently had an inspection and the foundation had been built on helical pier system, threw the inspector off, and had to get a structural engineer to come in.

Joan,

I actually purchase a property that no one else would go near because the foundation walls were literally falling in.  For $12,000, we had helical piers installed and that foundation has never been stronger!
