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 fixed panel door and the threshold at the rear deck - soft and wet as noted inside of the home. Several deck 4 x 4 treated posts were rotten at ground level - yes, treated wood does deteriorate. Another Raleigh Home Inspection for the books.
