Hole in the dirt near your foundation?
During a recent inspection we noticed a hole in the dirt near the foundation that appeared to go underneath the front porch. The hole was caused by poor drainage coming from a downspout located near the foundation. The diagram demonstrates how a downspout extension properly drains water away from the foundation avoiding the undermining that was observed in the first two photos. This is a very easy and inexpensive fix for most homeowners. This demonstrates another reason why API should be your home inspection company!
