Pearl Remodeling's sleuths scrutinize home foundations in a two-hour hunt for cracks, movement, rot, and termite damage. With today’s deal, a team of two investigators will arrive on the scene and immediately examine the quality of the connection between the house framing and the concrete foundation, which may be compromised due to soil movement or recent terra-tremors. The integrity of beams and piers the house sits on will also be called into question. Next, gas shut-off valves will be checked and tended to with the gentle love and attention normally reserved for new cell phones. Within five business days of the household probe, homeowners receive a detailed email that includes photos taken on site and commentary outlining any problems or issuing abodes a clean bill of health. If repairs are needed, the Pearl Remodeling team can give an estimate for the services required.
