Improper Support Found on Charlotte NC Home Inspection

February 2nd, 2012 · No Comments


Charlotte Home Inspector Matt Cicelello was inspecing a home near Matthews NC when he noticed that there was sag in the floor and then noticed this improper support in the crawl space.  There are several reasons why this support is improper.  First the pier has no footer to distribute the weight to the ground.  Secnd the blocks are dry stacked.  They should be mortared together.  Also the block is turned the wrong way and the weak part of the block is bearing the load of the house.
