Clayton NC Home Inspection; cut floor joist (new construction) - 04/25/09 08:41 PM
Another Clayton NC Home Inspection in the books with nearly 35 items in need of repair (new construction). One of the more noteworthy items is the floor joist that had been cut to allow a plumbing drain pipe to pass through. Joists get cut as construction and planning are not perfect. However, they must be braced properly to avoid potential settlement and sagging problems (I have seen plenty of this on older homes). This is one more example of why a Clayton NC Home Inspection should be considered mandatory. Clear Choice Home Inspections is located in Clayton NC (just East of (1 comments)
Raleigh Home Inspection 27613 townhome - 04/22/09 09:05 PM
We completed another Raleigh Home Inspection today on a 1,300 sq ft townhome and found a good number of plumbing issues for such a small six year old home. Two of the sinks leaked from their internal overflow passage, both sides of the kitchen sink leaked and the shower diverter valve did not divert all of the water to the shower. And the dishwasher filled with water but nothing more - would not even drain. During our Raleigh Home Inspection, we noted that the seal was broken on a window as well. Plus a few other items. All told, figure on (0 comments)
Home Inspection Clayton NC (outside of Raleigh) - 04/19/09 08:23 PM
We completed a Clayton NC Home Inspection on a new house over the weekend. Clayton is just East of Raleigh and offers a lower price per sq ft and larger lots (typically). Our Home Inspection generated a list of about 35 items - most were typical "teething" issues found in new construction. This Home Inspector found a floor joist that was notched greater than allowed (weakens the framing), a few outlets that were not protected by a GFCI circuit as required (both were in "wet" outdoor areas) and the most exciting issue was the stone veneer outside wall cladding that was (4 comments)
Raleigh Home Inspection - crawl space photo - 04/16/09 09:22 PM
We completed another Raleigh Home Inspection today and found a messy crawl space. The biggest issues with this home were the 3-4 rotten window sills (quite a bit of rotten trim/siding as well). So badly damaged that water had entered the holes and damaged the siding under the windows. Additional damage behind the siding on this Raleigh Home is very likely. Our Raleigh Inspection paid for itself many, many times over today. (1 comments)
Clayton NC Home Inspection; structural problem in crawl space - 04/09/09 08:40 PM
A Clayton NC Home Inspection last week turned up several minor issues and one structural problem. When inspecting the crawl space we noted the soil around a block pier was cracked and slightly lower than the surrounding soil. The pier was slightly leaning and it was no longer in contact with the girder above it; pier is supposed to support the girder. The pier sunk and a PE will need to evaluate further to determine if the pier has stabilized or if work is needed. Also, during our Clayton NC Home Inspection, we found a good deal of wet soil and (1 comments)
Pre-listing Home Inspection Raleigh area - 04/07/09 10:53 AM
Would it not be nice if all of your clients prepared their houses to sell quickly? Even FSBO Home Inspections should be done (best to work with an agent though). We completed a pre-listing Home Inspection in Raleigh last week and found a lot of rotten exterior trim, some siding issues and the other typical flaws. If a buyer fell in love with the home, paid for a Home Inspection, and a long repair list was generated, it often turns people off. (0 comments)
Raleigh Home Inspection - 04/05/09 08:08 PM
We completed another Raleigh Home Inspection on a home built in the mid 1980's. Typically houses of this age have exterior wood decay issues; this Raleigh Home Inspection validated that. The siding had swollen areas at joints and nail heads affecting approximately 20% of the house while approximately 5% was very soft to probing. Our Raleigh Home Inspector also found several cases of moisture damaged brick molding, window sills, window drip caps, lower window rail; fascia in 3 or 4 locations damaged heavily by carpenter bees. The most interesting wood/moisture issue was the thin (about 1/2") piece of wood between the (0 comments)
