Tip From Nickelsen Home Inspections, LLC: If your roof is 11-16 years old and you haven't checked it out closely in many years you should.  95% of all homes that we inspect will have cracked plumbing vent boot/jack necks, which is the #1 cause of small leaks into attics: leaks that eventually bec...

Just got a IMPORTANT REMINDER (quote-un-quote) in the mail to have my HVAC system checked. It reads: IT'S TIME TO HAVE YOUR PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE CHECK.  Please call our service department at ... to schedule your appointment.  (If you have already made your appointment, please disregard this n...
The proliferation of vacant homes in the last few years, due to foreclosure and shortsale (when vacant), has led to a subsequent proliferation in particular problems.  I could list dozens of issues that are more common on such properties, but one that I wanted to mention is "the damaged garage d...
