An experience home inspector will follow the signs… silt marks on a foundation, a ceiling water stain.
One of the definitions of the word sign – is something indicating the presence or existence of something else, <signs of moisture>.
It’s not uncommon to identify several property conditions (signs) associated with a damp crawlspace… the perfect place for mushrooms to grow:
- no gutters or downspouts terminating next to foundation
- clogged gutters allowing water to fall next to the house
- the yard slopes towards the house
- poor yard drainage
- leaking pipes
