Crumbling Foundations
March 10th, 2019 11:51 AM
This past week I appraised a home that was built in 1986 and was located in Windham County. As soon as I looked at the foundation walls in the unfinished basement I knew there was a problem. The concrete foundation walls had staining and spider web cracking consistent with defective concrete. I really started to feel bad for the home owner, who has no idea that there is a problem, as he just bought the home in 2018. My question is what did the other appraiser, the home inspector and the realtors do last year to protect this poor guy? 

For anyone buying a home in Hartford, Windham, Tolland, Middlesex and New London Counties that was built between 1983 and 2016, I strongly urge you to do your do diligence and get a core sample of the foundation to assure the concrete is sound.
