Inspection of the groundsThe Grounds: 

The grounds around the house are important as they control the water runoff which could affect the house and the foundation. We will inspect and evaluate the grounds immediate to the house regarding the overall drainage and surface conditions of the soil. 

We will aso report on area where the siding is in contact with or goes below the ground or mulch. This condtion puts the walls and floor framing at risk for water and/or wood boring insect damage.

We will report on the walkways, decks and the overall condition of the driveway.
