I'm hoping to close on a house in 10 days time and then the fun starts (lots of DIY ahead for me!). One of the 'problems' I'm hoping to resolve is something the Home inspection brought up, and I'm thinking I may need to jack up and replce shims in the crawlspace. This is what the inspector said, would appreciate it if some of you more experienced DIY'ers could say what you think : "Beam size: Double 2 x 10" lumber. Inadequate bearing surface at support located at the center beam. Soft OSB was used to shim the load bearing wall on top of the beams. Hardwood blocks or lumber is generally used in this application. This condition appears to be related to some uneven floor areas observed at the interior. On of the lower wood block shims is not making full contact with the beam splice at the center piers. Recommend correction of shim for proper support." The house is single storey, 1400sqft and only 13 years old in Upstate SC. One thing to mention which may be relevant, the home inspector seemed to me to be extremely picky - eg things like "wrong wattage lightbulb in porch light" - on some things and also said the HVAC was not working at all - I visited the house 2 days later and simply flicked the switch on the thermostat to 'On' and the HVAC sprang to life. This is a foreclosure and my 'accepted' offer is already way under the house value so it's not like I can negotiate any further price drop because of the Home Inspectors report.
