Exactly why I jumped Nathan for posting about that which he knows nothing about, and giving the wrong impressions to the general public regarding all qualified inspectors and this Association. Vendors should not be allowed to pose as inspectors on this MB, and disclaimers should be added to their profiles warning of their status, until such time as they are required to pass and maintain all requirements that a working inspecor must abide by.
There must be no deception allowed from these vendors to the general public (or members) that find there way here for assistance!
Mary, bottom line, you need a second opinion from a licensed and qualified foundation contractor that works with structural engineers that are well versed in building foundations (in Texas). I can’t tell you how many “engineers” out there think they are the “cat’s meow” and can evaluate anything, when in reality they don’t know squat about a home and it’s foundation. Remember, there are always ways to make corrections to a problem. How much $$ you are willing to invest in the correction will determine how well the correction is made, if at all.
