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.

The most interesting wood/moisture issue was the thin (about 1/2") piece of wood between the fixed panel door and the threshold at the rear deck - soft and wet as noted inside of the home.
