What to Expect From a Foundation Report?

A foundation Inspection and Report generally include an assessment of the condition, structural integrity and any issues present such as cracks, settling or water damage of a building foundation. It may also include information about the soil conditions, drainage and grading around the building, as well as any visible damage or signs of distress. Additionally, the report will include a summary of findings and recommendations for repairs or further action, which may include a detailed cost estimate for the recommended repairs. Some foundation reports also include a detailed diagram/sketch that shows the condition of the foundation, as well as measurements and observations to support the findings.
