Anyone ever blow sand under a house?
I will be buying a house very soon, and there is standing water under the house (which of course is on piers.) My home inspector said that the remediation for this problem is to simply blow sand under it. He said that for my house (about 800 ft^2), needing 4" should cost about $1K.
My real estate agent referred me to a contractor who said it would cost $3.5K! I called my home inspector again, and he said that job estimate was bovine defecation. So I am scrambling around to find someone. Any ideas on how to find someone, and how much it should cost in a generally low labor cost area? (Oh, and I have asked my inspector to consult his Rolodex for referrals.)
