Selma NC Home Inspection - 11/28/08 10:20 AM
Our recent Home Inspection of a Selma NC house (east of Clayton NC) turned up some interesting flaws. Aside from various roofing defects (one that created a damp spot on the hall ceiling), the crawl space of this Selma NC home was the most interesting. The subfloor under the tiled master bath shower was stained, damp and soft to probing (ie rotten). The affected area was approximately 8’ x 10’ and will require quite a bit of work to repair. We also found a floor joist that had been cut, a mud line along the inside foundation wall (indicating water entry (0 comments)
Pre-drywall Home Inspection in Cary NC - Home Inspector found roof defects - 11/28/08 09:47 AM
We recently completed a pre-drywall Home Inspection in Cary NC (just outside of Raleigh NC) and discovered some surprising roofing defects. As Raleigh NC Home Inspectors, we look carefully at roof flashings due to their importance for keeping moisture from traveling behind siding and under the roof. This new home was missing the kick-out flashing where a lower roof section met with a house wall. Bare wood was visible (a dormer to the right of this area will direct water right at the bare wood). If not corrected, large amounts of water could enter this area and cause significant damage to (2 comments)
Clayton NC Home Inspection - electrical problem - 11/20/08 02:57 PM
During our latest Clayton NC Home Inspection, we inspected a brand new 3,300 sq ft house and found a wire in the main electrical panel that was overfused. An innocent mistake, but I am glad we caught it as the breaker would not trip until the circuit saw at least 20 amps (the breaker size) and the wire was only rated for 15. It is nearly impossible to build a perfect house and that is why a home inspection in Clayton NC (and all other areas) is so important. A few of the other items our home inspector noted: a smoke (2 comments)

Home Inspection in Cary NC (27513) reveals major structural problem - 11/06/08 09:08 AM
We inspected a home in Cary NC, 27513 zip, and found a bowed and cracked foundation wall. The wall was approximately 5 feet high and the soil on the exterior was nearly to the top of the wall (interior of crawl space was at a much lower grade than the exterior). A downspout had been dumping right next to the wall and kept the soil saturated. The pressure eventually pushed the wall inward, causing the damage (the photo only shows the water coming in on one side but the bowed and cracked area is around the corner). During our Cary NC (0 comments)
Cary NC home inspection - home inspector finds improper flashing - 11/05/08 09:24 AM
We inspected a brand new house in Cary NC and found a few roofing flaws. Photo taken by our home inspector shows a junction between a roof and the house siding with a heavy bead of sealer applied. "Kickout" flashing should have been installed that would direct water away from the house siding. In its current configuation, once the caulk/sealer deteriorates (and it will), water may travel down the metal roof and go behind the siding. After that, wood behind the siding can easily become damaged. Over time, a major repair would be required. As always, a home inspection (in Cary (1 comments)
