Who Should Schedule a House Elevation Plot Inspection?
When looking for a home to purchase, prospective buyers may notice on a walk-through that a floor feels as if it’s sloping. Magnolia offers a service that will measure to the tenth of an inch what the actual slope of the floor is and whether that exceeds the allowed limit.
What Type of Homes are Prone to Sloping Floors?
Homes that are prone to sloping floors include those built in the 1930s, 40s, and 50s that are called pier and beam homes. Home elevation plotting will give you useful information to plan your next steps. Based on the inspection results, you may want to do one of the following:
- Have the floor leveled before you purchase it.
- Monitor its condition to see if the sloping worsens.
- Use these inspection results as a base point to check again in two years and five years to see if further settling is occurring — perhaps the foundation is settling.
