Got a moldy spot in your ceiling. This could be the cause.

Keep an eye on your plumbing vent boot flashings. Cracks should be repaired before water damage and mold growth starts.

Here's what a couple of B4 U Close clients say: (Clicki the line above to see others)

I think the current owners are a little angry about the thorough inspection you did. They didn't have one done and it cost them $18K.  I, my loan officer and my agent think a home inspection is well worth what I paid.

Thank You for the outstanding job you did on the inspection.  We bought and sold 9 houses and this was the only inspection that was ever done properly.  It was helpful and we will use it to do the repairs with a system, instead of the guess work we usually do.  Thanks again

You must have one of then alien bugs down there. You know the ones that are in the sci fi movies and eat rubber. Like, you know, what else could it be?

Hi Erby, the UV-rays in Kentucky just eat up the boots.  Thanks for posting.

Hmmm. . . thanks for the reminder.  I don't have mold on the ceilling at the moment, but have a house with mold in the kitchen cabinets beside the dishwasher!

Erby, did you sneak over to my place?  I had this happen just two weeks ago - I came home and found the pillows on my bed were damp!

Erby are you inspecting some of my clients?  Looks like some of the roofs I've been on lately.
