Sometimes you just need a little help. Home inspection in Hobbs N. M.
On a recent home inspection in Hobbs New Mexico for Desert Sun Home inspections from Carlsbad New Mexico.
This home was built in 1985. Local builder. But it looks like they were trying to save some time and money. Short cuts were found all over the home.
I noticed the area in the garage flooring was not right. Cracks are often found but not in this condition nor this badly separated.
The exterior brick and trim of the home showed signs of stress as well. Not a good thing when the buyer is at the inspection and you are explaining things to the buyer.
The buyer did bring up the major crack in the garage floor.
Take a look at what I saw when inspecting this home.
This crack would not have been so much a concern if there were no issues with the exterior of the home. But there were and are issues.
See what I saw when inspecting the exterior of the homes brick.
Garage exterior wall. This crack lines up with the area where the flooring crack reaches the interior wall.
Some times there is need for a little help.
The buyer is really concerned about the crack and what it's doing to the exterior wall.
I am not a strucural engineer. But one is needed for this home. I don't call for a structural engineer very often, they are costly and they some times go overboard costing the sale of the home.
But in this case I have too. The buyer is good with bringing in an engineer and will wait for the results then make the final decision on the home.
Remember to always get a certified home inspection when buying or selling a home.
Have a great day every one.
