Consumers spend considerable amounts of money in search of dryer, more comfortable
homes, and rightfully so. Building moisture ranks near the top of the list of most common
problems discovered during inspections. Having personally inspected close to 5000 homes I can
say without doubt that basement and crawlspace moisture are responsible for more real estate
deals falling apart than any other defect in a building. I think it is safe to also say that building
moisture, including basement and crawlspace moisture is often misdiagnosed. If your home has a
suspected or obvious moisture problem the first item on your agenda should be having the home
evaluated by a forensic building inspector. A forensic inspector will have the knowledge and
equipment to properly diagnose your problems and create cost effective repair strategies.
