During a standard home inspection, we take hundreds of photos to document everything we find. Most of these photos are used exclusively for the home inspection report. However, we occasionally come across something that we’d like to share with a more general audience. These photos may include the strange or merely just improper installation that every home owner should be aware of.
Buyer Saves Money on the Home Inspection, Doesn’t Get Pool Inspected
To save money, the buyer decided not to have a pool inspection included with the home inspection. After moving in they found out how much the repair were going to cost and turned the pool into a flowerbed.
Home Inspector Finds Wind Storm Improved Attic Ventilation
After a wind storm, the home inspector found an extra hole in the roof. The family selling the house did not know that they were missing a vent. As the home inspector walked the back of the roof it was easy to see that any more rain would cause some damage.
Seller Completes Repairs From Home Inspection Report
Just because you can “Get-R-Done” doesn’t mean you should. Without adequate air flow for draft, the smoke from the fireplace will fill the house instead of flowing out the chimney. Our home inspectors often find improperly completed home repairs. Things like this home made chimney cap need to be documented by the home inspector and included in the home inspection report.
