Charlotte Home Inspector Finds Causes of Erosion

By
Home Inspector with Home Inspection Carolina

Home Inspection Carolina inspector Chip Sprague was recently inspecting a home in Charlotte NC when he noticed quite a bit of erosion back by the back patio. Even though there was a downspout extension on the downspout now there obviously wasn't one there for years and years as you can see by the picture. Without that extension it erodes the soil underneath the patio making it a collapse and cracking hazard. Make sure you keep the water piped away from your house.

Great advice Preston.  Many homeowners don't realize the damage that water pouring in at the foundation, patio, steps, driveway, etc can cause over time.
