Home Had Foundation Damage

by | Apr 29, 2015

We had Octopus Home Inspections out to do an inspection for a 1941 Craftsman home we were interested in purchasing. My wife was dead set on buying this house from the first time she saw it… so all that was left was just to have it inspected for additional piece of mind. When Chris gave us a tour of the house when he finished the report, he showed us the foundation damage where it was starting to buckle inward and explained to us how the damage had originally occurred and what to expect in the years to come. Long story short, my wife was heartbroken, but we decided not to purchase the house since the house would eventually need to be lifted up and the foundation replaced due to water damage from the water from the downspouts was never diverted away from the house. We found another house not much further down the road that my wife was pleased with and of course we had Chris return for another thorough inspection. Another bang up job by the inspector, but this time we were able to make an offer since there were no major issues found. I would definitely recommend Octopus Home Inspections to anyone in the market for a competent home inspector.
Thanks, Chris.
