I’m working on my first paid inspection. It’s a 120 yr old house that has had the foundation replaced with concrete poured to ground level and 2 rows of block. I suspected the footer wasn’t very deep so I probed the ground and I can go under the footer at approx 14 in deep. Is this a valid test? and should I write it that I suspect the footer isn’t deep enough or that I know the footer isn’t deep enough? I appreciate any help I can get on this.
P.S. great message board, I've learned a lot by studying it.
