The home I am trying to buy is a 2004 Toll Brothers construction in MA.
During inspection, we found that that Brick Veneer/Siding on 2 front walls overhands the concrete foundation by 1.5-2 inches.
My inspector highlighted this issue and I also got an opinion from a Structural Engineer, who agreed that this was an issue, which needed a fix via bolting a galvanized angle to support the brick overhang, which will be bolted to the foundation.
The Seller is not keen to fix. Toll Brothers says that this is not a structural issue, so they will not cover this under extended warrenty.
So could one of you help me with the following:
- What are the risks of such overhang?
- How much wd it cost me approximately to get the galvanized angle fix done?
There are 2 walls, each abt 15ft wide.
Your response would be very much appreciated.
