Home Inspection Clayton NC - wet crawl space

By
Home Inspector with Clear Choice Home Inspections, Inc

This home was built in the late 1990's and overall looked good other than one big issue.  Our Home Inspection in Clayton NC turned up a very wet crawl space.  Not just around the perimeter, it was damp in many areas throughout with several puddles.  Not from plumbing leaks, this was due to water issues coming from outside and under / through the foundation.  Mitigation costs will be significant.  A Clayton NC Home Inspection always pays for iteself.

Jayme, did they tar the outside wall or did they just build the house on top of a spring?

High water table could be a problem.

The lot is sloped toward the front of the house and is then pretty flat.  Gutters dump at the front foundation wall but at some point they ran drainiage pipe from them to the side yard.  Not sure when the ran the pipe but without it, a tremendous amount of water would dump right at the front and try to move back.
