A Continuing Installment of Home inspections that sting...!

Posted by Jennifer Mackay - Owner on Tuesday, July 16th, 2019 at 5:34am.

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

Toboggan ice-dam solution

Granted, this is quite a clever setup. But it seems like it might be less work to fix the ice-dam problem!

Skillfully Unnecessary Scribe

Bonus: You can visit with your toddler while your taking care of business. If the door opened the correct way, there would have been no scribing required.

No Fuse, Big Problem

Just because it fits, doesn’t mean it’s a fuse. Yes, copper tubing will conduct electricity, but this is VERY dangerous! And I feel an eerie presence of the ghost of Charles Darwin…don’t let it happen to you!

Why buy studs?

Use up all that scrap 2×4. This might work structurally, but it’s definitely not the right way to frame a wall.

Now that’s a maintenance-free finish and it's Art?!?

If you’ve got some spare time on your hands, give this a try. Otherwise installing a new door might be an easier fix.

Liberace’s guest bath

Believe it or not, there are regulations regarding the distance between your tub and a light fixture. If you’d rather move the whirlpool tub than the light fixture, hire a professional!

Strange brew

This is some scary stuff! Maybe it’s time for a water quality test. Or maybe it’s time to look into water softeners.

Find the Fuel Oil Tanks in this Picture

If you’re painting metal, do the prep work the right way. That way your artwork will stand the test of time.  Hopefully the new owners will appreciate it as well!

What the wall usually sees

How in the world can a tank get put on backwards? Maybe read the directions the next time you install a new toilet or hire a plumber.

Half-Hidden Outlet

To use the bottom outlet, simply snip the plug off your device and stick in the bare wires - um on second thought... NO DON'T!. These home inspector nightmares are truly mind boggling
