Preparing For A Home Inspection

Preparing For A Home Inspection

Clients, Home Inspection Q/A
  What are some of the more common defects found during a home inspection? Many times when defects in a home are found and reported, on the home owner is unaware those problems existed.  The list below may help you in preparing for a home inspection and any defects found:   Bathroom exhaust fans in attic:  On those cold Northern Michigan mornings, everyone loves a hot shower.  So, you crank up the heat, turn on the exhaust fan, and in you go.  But where is all that hot, humid air going?  It's supposed to be vented outside of the home, but you'd be surprised how many I see vented straight into the attic space.  This is a big no-no, and can lead to mold growth on your rafters or roof sheathing.…

Secret Tunnel House

Secret Tunnel House

Clients
A lot of times when in a social setting and people find out I am a home inspector, I've often get asked, "What's the coolest house you've ever inspected?" You would think if might be difficult to narrow down the different houses, but this is always an easy one.  The secret tunnel house.  When I respond that I inspected a house that had a secret tunnel in the basement that connected to another house, I always get LOTS of questions afterwards.  Technically speaking, the tunnel wasn't a secret, but looking at the house or property from the outside, you never would no it was there. It was located in the basement of a 100 year old house.  A row of bookshelves along the wall, and above one of the shelves…

New Tool Offers Greater Detail for Home Inspections

New Tool Offers Greater Detail for Home Inspections

Clients, Home Inspection Q/A
The roof of a home is one of about a dozen general areas  that I inspect and clients can expect during my home inspection services. The condition and findings of the roof inspection are always detailed in a full report to my clients.  Those details are so important.  And I love it when I can add some innovation to my tool box that can benefit my clients and enhance my level of service. To enhance the detail of my roof inspections, I've enabled a remote telescoping pole camera. This allows me to better inspect extreme roof heights in potentially dangerous situations, like winter frost and ice.  It also helps me to inspect extremely tight and difficult angles and slopes. This is a huge added benefit for my clients because they…
