Crawlspaces are not always the most glamorous part of your home, but they serve a great purpose. While we do not like finding problems in crawlspaces, more often than not, they are where most problems are found. These areas of our homes are often forgotten about, ignored, or flat out unaware of. However, it is important that you get your crawlspace thoroughly inspected before buying or selling your home. Take a look at one of the more concerning things that we see commonly in these areas!
Sometimes when we do a crawlspace we find little to no evidence of any problems, which is a good sign for the buyers. Occasionally we find a home with a clown or ghost living underneath them. However, other times we discover a bit of “hackery” While joists can be notched in certain areas to allow for plumbing, this one may not be quite right. One joist out of dozens may not present much of an issue, but this one is directly under the tub – so you may end up with a tub sized hole in the floor.
