Inspection of a Crawlspace

By
Real Estate Agent with Buyer's Edge Company Inc

A crawl space is an area under the first floor of a house that is not high enough to stand up in. 

basement with crawl space nearby

 

The crawlspace should be insulated, conditioned and dry. Last weekend, our home inspector went into a crawl space that needs to be updated. The house was built in 1972 and the original owners are selling the home to our buyers. 

In the Washington D.C. Metropolitan area, many single family homes have crawl spaces. Most of the newer construction homes have conditioned crawl spaces but if you're buying an older home, the crawl space could have a dirt floor, open vents, and no insulation. Like this house in the featured video!

 

 

Inspection of a Crawlspace features home inspector Bobby Mayberry with RPM Home Inspect. He is a seasoned home inspector, licensed in Washington D.C. and Virginia.

What I particularly like about Bobby, besides his experience, is the way he explains everything about a house to our buyer. He encourages our buyers to ask questions and provides lots of advice and ideas of what to do in a home. 

If you are buying a home, make sure you hire a licensed professional home inspector. Ask questions and expect to receive a detailed inspection report from the home inspector. The report should include the approximate age of the roof, the condition and age of all the major systems in the home as well as the condition of the electrical system and plumbing.
