Buying a home and renting it out is one of the best ways to earn passive income. But if you’ve ever had any experience renting out a place, there’s always the possibility of having to deal with difficult situations with your tenant.
Minimizing issues, at least on your part as the landlord, is the best preventive measure so you don’t have to deal with complaints in the future or even unexpected costs from something like a foundation repair.
That’s exactly what the new owner of this house is trying to avoid. They purchased this house with the intention of renting it out. However, the home inspector noticed some problems, which the engineer confirmed may be a problem with the left side of the house. There are trees close to that side and they could have caused foundation damage that in turn resulted in cracks on the house’s exterior.
Added Foundation Support in a McKinney Home
The engineer initially recommended foundation watering systems and root barriers, but the homeowner decided they wanted more of a guaranteed solution to prevent any issues with the future tenants.
There are certain parts of the house where you could see the gaps and cracks if you look for them, but they’re fairly easy to miss. Here are only some of them in this home…
The homeowner decided to have us install piers on the left part of the house. There were also existing piers located on this side of the house from the front to back corners. We used concrete piers from our PT2 system to provide more support and stability.
This was a quick and easy job for us to complete from years of experience. At least now, our client can rest easy knowing they don’t have to deal with this foundation problem for a couple of years.
