These shims were supposed to be holding up the home in the crawlspace
This customer bought their home 2 years ago. When they purchased it from a house flipper they were told they just completed over 20k worth of repairs to the foundation and roof. A few days ago they were selling the home and had a home inspection done. Things didn't work out so well for them. The "flipper" did not have the structural repairs under the home repaired properly! Now it will cost the sellers another 10k or so to repair the repairs.
I found no footings under the crawlspace piers. Several of the piers were crooked and held up to the house with some flimsy shims.
This column above has a broken block
The photo above, the column that was added for strength was resting on the sub floor and one of the blocks is installed backwards. It didn't even touch a floor joist or beam, has no footing and is very crooked.
