At Falcone Crawl Space & Structural Repair, we’ve always tried to make it as easy as possible for home buyers to do business with us. That is why we offer a free crawl space consultation.
Before you buy a new home, you will always pay for a complete inspection, but we now urge you to consider a Buyers Crawl Space Consultation, as well. You want to know exactly what you are getting into when buying a new home. When it comes to the crawl space, you want to make sure things like slightly elevated moisture levels don’t become moisture-damaged beams and costly repairs.
Free inspection includes:
A crawl through of accessible areas of the crawl space
Check for signs of standing water
Inspect for plumbing leaks
Check moisture readings
Inspection and water test of sump pumps, as needed
Inspect for wood-destroying insects
Identify landscape issues that could interfere with ventilation
Check for condensation on duct work
Confirm positive drainage around the house
Check integrity of vapor barrier (if applicable)
Check integrity of crawl space door
