Structural Issues

Chatham-Kent, and Wallaceburg especially, have many houses with crawl spaces. Looking at the crawl space is by far the most important part of the inspection. Rotten wood members and makeshift supports are common practices so the inspector should be on the lookout for improper homeowner renovations.

Some older houses arenít perfect, but can be still structurally sound. On the other hand, one common issue in older houses is poured concrete or rubble stone foundations, which can deteriorate over time and are potentially costly to fix.
