More Installments of Home inspections that sting...!

Posted by Jennifer Mackay - Owner on Wednesday, July 10th, 2019 at 5:33am.

Here is another installment in my series on the necessity for home inspections. Remember to check back often for more of these goodies over the next few days/weeks.

When purchasing a home, it is highly advisable that buyers obtain a home inspection from a qualified and licensed home inspector.

Why?

Well, the following are just a few issues found during normal home inspections... ( Photos and images generously provided by Structure Tech)

 

Home Inspections that sting

Brilliant extension ladder leg extender

Another clever use for a five-gallon bucket, just prior to kicking the bucket. Please be careful with extension ladders, folks.

Crop circles in the attic

Here’s one theory. Frost on the underside of the roof deck is melting and wetting the insulation. A hot can light below is drying out the area around it.

Liberty Bell

It’s cracked like the Liberty Bell. But this cracked chimney liner needs to be repaired to prevent a chimney fire. Annual chimney inspections are a good idea for all home owners!

Hardhat Area

It’s never a good idea to hang a ceiling fan from the electrical cable only. They make ceiling fan braces that make the job safe and easy. If you can't install it yourself, there are many electricians and handy people that will gladly do the job for you.

Brick Work Gone Bad

Some repairs are so neat and well executed that you barely even notice them. Not this one, though.

Wine cork plug

At least until you get to the store for a new pop-up drain assembly. Or maybe it’s time to install a new vanity sink or hire a plumber?

Bust’n out!

What in the world made a thing like this happen? Whatever it was, it calls for a new outlet install. Can you say House Fire?

Ice wars

Did you know that freezing water exerts 50,000 lbs. per square inch? That’s a pretty good reason to winterize irrigation systems even in parts of Florida!

Ok, this is one of my Favorites... Because I have seen this more than once!

One way to save money on flooring

I’ve got a great idea! We don’t need new flooring under the rug. Nobody will ever know. Really, they'll never know...?

Boy-O-Boy!

Not only is this chimney badly deteriorated, it’s almost completely missing any clay or metal liner. This is the poster child for why you should have your chimney inspected annually.
