FOUNDATION REPAIRS : HOW TO AVOID CLOSING PITFALLS www.directwaterproofing.ca

Slide2:

3 COMMON FOUNDATION PROBLEMS THAT HOLD UP CLOSING The sellers thought they could sell “as is” and have the buyers do after closing The repairs were not inspected and certified by the third party professional engineer The contractor did not obtain the necessary permit. www.directwaterproofing.ca

Slide3:

COMMON MYTHS ABOUT FOUNDATION ISSUES BAD ADVICE COMMON MYTHS This is normal settling Get a contract, and then fix the foundation. All lifetime warranties are the same . Don’t buy a house that either has had foundation repair work done or needs work done. As a real estate agent , I should “handle” the foundation inspection for my client. The crack is just in the mortar, so I am okay. www.directwaterproofing.ca

Slide4:

GOOD ADVICE THE TRUTH Only a qualified professional can determine the difference between seasonal movement and permanent settlement that requires repairs . Sellers may never get a contract.Buyers prefer homes without foundation problems or homes that have already been repaired . Foundation warranties cover settlement .A “true” lifetime warranty is well defined,not prorated,and valid for the life of a home. www.directwaterproofing.ca

Slide5:

Buying a house that has been repaired and has a “true” lifetime warranty saves you the expense of those repairs later on . The buyers and sellers need to be involved in the process so they have realistic expectations for the repairs Whether the brick cracks or just the mortar cracks is irrelevant .The size of the crack is the most important factor when determining the severity of the foundation movement. www.directwaterproofing.ca
