Greetings O wise and grizzled vets of home inspections (kissing up for some expertise)
In reference to this linked discussion, I need some clarification.
We are in Blacksburg, VA., and just had a proactive home inspection in preparation for listing our home in a few months. I figured I’d rather know about any needs and address any issues before listing.
Our report included a need for another lally column in our unfinished basement. The TAPCO line of lally columns, sold at Lowes, are affordable and look to be easily installed.
The question becomes are they acceptable and considered permanent or are they not. The link above seems like the topic is debatable? These are NOT telescoping, they have 4" adjustment ranges. In our case we have a 7’2" need. TAPCO has a 7’ thru 7’4" lally product. If I use that, will it suffice as the needed permanent additional support for inspection purposes.
Thanks in advance for any/all expertise!
