I'm the fourth inspector. Really ?
When I got the call about a home inspection in my competitor's back yard, I thought great. My competition is always coming to town and inspecting here, so why not go there and do a job close to his office.
The family is relocating and needs a home inspection to verify that there are "no Problems" with the home.
I found a few issues that were not found by the first three inspectors.
Vent missing louvers.
I know this does not look like a big deal, but when it do'es rain, it will let the rain in. Need to repair or replace the vent.
In this picture is a water heater stack. A simple "single pipe" with no protection from the heat transfer to the structure of the home. And yes the flue ring was hanging down when I took the picture.
This unfinished trim at the window was a sore spot for the owner. She claimed that the "other inspectors found nothing". And now I come in wanting to tear her house apart. Well now first of all, I don't "tear things apart to inspect a home".
Second of all, "I only list defects that are defects".
After getting the report she was very mad. She said the Realtor wants her to repair the home before they list it on the market for sale. I got a call from the seller, she wanted to tell me she was not very happy with the report. Now she has to repair the home and it will cost her a lot of money. The report was a lenghty one. A full page of defects.
Being the "fourth inspector". And the first to write up these defects, makes you wonder what the "other inspectors" are really doing.
Have a great day every one.
