Certify Your Foundation

Your lender may request a foundation inspection as part of the mortgage application process for HUD/FHA purchasing. In other words, lenders need to verify that the home can endure harsh weather conditions. If you don’t know where to get this certification, search no more! At TRM & Associates, LLC, we can design a retrofit for an existing non-compliant mobile home foundation. Meet local guidelines with our assistance!

    We recently used TRM for a client consult after a home inspection and would highly recommend their services! Tyler was incredibly fast with his initial response to our inquiry and was able to schedule an inspection within 24 hours. We received the finished report within 24 hours of the inspection. Great first experience and will definitely be using again!

    TRW responded to my request quickly and did a complete and thorough analysis of the support of my chimney. Tyler Mizelle is extremely professional and knowledgeable. He did numerous checks of the chimney and a complete under house inspection of the foundation and support system. He did a good job of explaining the situation to me. I would happily do business with them again.

    Tyler Mizelle did a structural inspection on our balcony and porch that is required by our city, in order to obtain a zoning permit. Mr. Mizelle was so easy to work with and very professional, as he explained the process to us. He schedule an appointment within the week, which for us was necessary. We definitely recommend him and would use TRM & Associates, again.

    TRM was recommended to me by another structural engineer. The young man who came to inspect the structural support of our foundation after a kitchen renovation was pleasant and thorough. I received a comprehensive, written report of the structural improvements needed, which I could give my contractor. TRM’s fee was with comparable to other companies.

    Tyler Mizelle has helped me on numerous properties. I am a realtor and I have contacted Tyler to view various structural issues including garage slab cracking, brick veneer cracks, structural termite issues, etc. He is very through and his letters explain matters in terms that are easy to understand. He is efficient, friendly, and highly qualified to assess any structural issues. I highly recommend him.

    We hired Tyler on short notice and he accommodated our needs by coming over after normal business hours to inspect the structural integrity of the new house we are building in Norfolk, as well as to inspect the repairs our builder made under the house.
    We are very happy we hired TRM & Associates. Tyler had the ability to translate industry jargon into plain English, and used a notepad to draw various concepts.
    As to the job, he confirmed that the repair under the house was done acceptably. But he also found an issue in the attic that needed correction, by comparing the actual construction (that looked unconventional to him) to the architects’ plans.
    We asked him for his report ASAP, so we could get it to the builder, but were still surprised to receive it before noon the next day.
    We highly recommend Tyler & his firm.
