-- A brief physical inspection is made of the property. If
damage is found, an abbreviated repair cost estimate is
provided. Additionally, sufficient data is taken to be able to
write a feasibility report should that be required.
If you want to inspect your own property, the plan to the
right will take you to a form with "Hot Spots" on it that allows
you to transfer to various annotated photographs of typical
damage observed during most inspections.
-- A written report is compiled for a lender or other interested
party outlining the scope of our inspection and listing the
recommendations we deem necessary to repair the foundation and
slab. Appendices are provided which illustrate the details of
the proposed repairs.
-- A detailed written scope of work and cost estimate of the
observed damage is compiled. The repair areas are illustrated
on an accompanying sketch of the site.
REPAIR DESIGN --
All repairs are designed and certified to be in accord with the
current engineering standards of practice. The necessary shop
drawings are produced for all associated trades, if any,
supplying materials and services.
REPAIR PROCESS --
Generally, the house should be empty when the interior repairs
are made. Exceptions can be made however. All work is done
under the supervision of the design engineer. Before and after
photographs are taken during the repair process to document that
the word was done in accord with specifications. If requested,
AMCOS will document and repair any additional damage found
during the repair process at a mutually agreed upon increase in price.
-- Immediately upon completing the field portion of the job, a
written summary of the work actually accomplished is given to
the lender which allows the financing funds to be released. The
"AS-BUILT" summary includes a revised site sketch which
illustrates all the repaired areas. Also included is a limited
5-year workmanship and materials defect warranty. However,
please note that the stability of the foundation is in no way
warranted against all possible future movement whatsoever. A liquidated
damage credit is given for any work not completed in accord with
the original proposal along with additional charges for any
extra work done. This document is signed by both AMCOS and the
CLIENT in acknowledgment of and acceptance as complete, all of
the agreed upon work.
-- A comprehensive report is also issued after the work has been
completed which includes a copy of the "AS-BUILT" summary.
Before and after photographs taken during the course of the work
are included as a report appendix. This report serves as a real
estate disclosure document with regard to the repaired damage.
Buyers can also use the report as a future selling aid should
they choose to resell the property.
