I am buying a home built in 1996 with
- full basement
- permanent wood foundation
- very well drain sand build site
I’ve inspected what I could along the walls inside the basement (much of it is finished) and everything was dry, no visible rot to exterior sheathing or any of the visible framing.
I’ve confirmed there is a vapor barrier along the exterior just above grade. The vapor barrier has a treated plywood cap on it to protect, although it is a bit warped with could accept rain water into the cap but likely mostly outside the vapor barrier.
Does anyone know of an inspector near Montague, MI who would be available over the next 10 days?
Hopefully Larry Kage will see this and chime in!
