The Home Foundation Inspection Process
After you pour a foundation or complete building a home, you generally need a home foundation inspection before you can move to the next stage of your process. Typically, this is required from a legal perspective, but it’s also important from a structural perspective. When you get an inspection, you can rest assured that there are no issues. Then, you can proceed with the rest of your building project confidently, or you can start the process of selling the home.
To be on the safe side, you should set up your home foundation inspection with a licensed structural engineer or with a foundation professional who has successfully worked on multiple projects in your condition. The environment and the soil in an area can create unique challenges for the foundation, which is why it’s important to work with someone who understands the local terrain. Ideally, the person should not work for your company or be attached to you personally. That helps to ensure you get a completely unbiased and extremely knowledgeable opinion on the state of your foundation.
The length of the process can vary, and it tends to take longer to assess commercial foundations than residential ones, but in most cases, you can complete a home foundation inspection in 1-2 hours, including the interview process where the inspector asks questions about your methodology or other concerns. However, the length can also be impacted by the type of inspection you get. Some contractors just need a basic inspection, but others opt for an additional engineering report.
During the home foundation inspection, the inspector looks at the structure of your foundation. The inspector checks out the inside and outside of the foundation as well as the surrounding terrain. If the home has been built, they check internal elements, grading, and drainage issues as well. They may also do a floor elevation survey or complete other steps. If you’re concerned about something, you can ask for an inspection of that particular area.
