Hello, this is Tommy Kirby with 1st Choice Home Inspections and I’m in a crawl space looking at the backside of a foundation wall. You have your steel plate, you have your little laser board right here. But one good reason to  always hire home inspector, make sure it gets in the crawl space.

Sometimes it’s hard to do, but we do the best we can. That ledger board all the way across this wall, this whole back wall, is just, eaten up from moisture damage , termite damage. Some spots that’s cracked open you can see through it. Some places you could put at your hand through it.

This would constitute a pretty major repair. Again, now the reason to get a good home inspector that’s going to get in your crawlspace, and really look after these things. Thanks for watching!
