The correct way vs the WRONG WAY!
I'm not an expert or home inspector but even a common person can see the job they did on my foundation is obviously A disaster waiting to happen.
YES I'm going to hire an independent home inspection for Pre-dry wall and final walk.

This is what the steel beam support should look like when installed correctly on the concrete wall. It fits perfectly with no breaking of wall to make it align correctly.
Notice how the beam is seated centered above the metal plates. And there are minimal number of plates not 12+ like ours which is too high for any kind of stability.
THIS IS WRONG!!!
This is what a banged up sloppy job they did to my foundation.
Breaking of the concrete wall to the right so they can align the beam to the other side. That's a lot of plates stacking way to high. Stability is a major concern.
They even use inserts to make it even higher!!!
No way this is stable.
I don't think this will support my house.
The beam should sit squarely above the metal plates, NOT TO ONE SIDE.
PM said it was "temporary", if it's temporary, why the heck they keep building on top of it.
Yes the whole house is pretty much sitting on top of this already.
How the heck are they suppose to replace the wood block when my entire house is already sitting on top of it. If the foundation is moved in any way, it will compromise the whole structure.
I also have a video of them installing the first beam but left soon after. The workers had to know they found a problem yet they continued to install it incorrectly and now..........
THIS IS NOT RIGHT!!!!!
They should've stopped on the 1st beam and wait for engineer to make correction and have the necessary material to complete. My house is literally sitting on wobbly wooden blocks and off center plates.
