J. Flowers and I live in San Antonio Texas. I am selling my
I am selling my house and it is a pier and beam house that had new piers and beams installed in 2011. When the inspection took place the foundation was fine but the report showed the interior floor 4 inches out of level. They said 3 inches was the limit. I had a construction company come out and as it turns out the dining room on the far side of the house is 3 inches out of level too high. Leveling the dining room would make the entire area within an inch or so. The buyers agent sent out a foundation company whos brilliant solution was to jack up the rest of the house to match the dining room. I brought in a construction company that gave me a proposal to remove the flooring and sub floor in the dining room, lower the floor joists to level, replace the sub floor and floor and then trim out. Once this is done the area would be well within the tolerance. Your thoughts? … read more
