Profile Reviews
Mr. Loesch is a Licensed Professional Engineer in Mo., Il., and KS, and has performed over 20,000 building inspections and structural evaluations. He is a certified member (ACI) of the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI), a past president ASHI and also past President of the local chapter of ASHI. He served as the chairman of and was on the Examination Board for Professional Home Inspectors for nine years. He also serves as an expert witness and instructor for the St. Louis Association of Realtors.

His specialty is evaluation of foundation and other structural issues. Based on 43 years of experience, he offers an independent and unbiased opinion on the problem and recommended solution(s).

The St. Louis area has soil conditions that can contribute to foundation problems. Our area has a considerable amount of clay soils. Clay has two basic characteristics. First it swells when wet and second it shrinks when dried. Combine this with the weather patterns we have experienced over the past 10-20 years (which include many wet and several dry or drought periods) and many of the foundations in this area have experienced settlement, uplift, wall bowing and/or basement seepage. So what do you do?
