Remodeling? Finish the work before you sell the home. Home inspection.
At a recent home inspection for the buyer. I ran across a bath that was being remodeled.
The contractors were there and they were working on the second bath. the first bath was (finished according to them).
That famous line of
"we'll be done in a couple of days".
Right I thought as I was looking over what had been completed to date.
This contractor had no signs on the truck or the trailer. HMMMM. Makes you wonder.
The first so called finished bath I inspected was pretty good. Attention to detail was good as well.
This is what the client of the contractor could see any way.
When I get into the attic. This was another story. the ceiling in the bath was replaced along with a new install for the light ceiling fan combo.
So what was wrong with the first bath?
All of the insulation was pushed back and never re installed. Now they need to get this resolved.
Then there was the "Infamous bath exhaust Vent".
Why is it so hard to complete the job the right way?
You can clearly see that the vent is not connected to anything at all. Just terminates in the attic and already discoloring the sheet rock that had been installed. Notice the support framing in the way? The fan will need to be turned around in order for the venting to be connected so you won't cut the support.
Not a good situation when it comes to the Contractor getting the job done the right way.
Remember to get a "Trust but verify inspection" of you are betting work done to your home. these issues could have been avaoided if this seller did have a "Trust but verify Inspection".
Have a great day every one.
