Should I Hire an Engineer for My Foundation Inspection?
Yes. The average engineer in the Houston, Austin, Dallas, San Antonio area charges anywhere from $400 to $600 on average when they don't have to drive very far for an inspection of a slab. Most charge more for a written report.
Isn't the home inspection good enough for my foundation inspection?
Not unless your home inspector is a licensed engineer familiar with residential slab construction and deflection. See my earlier blog of May 14,2012 titled: What standards does the "home" inspector use for foundations?
