Are the good days really over for good? Home inspection Hobbs N. M. #2
When there are issues with a home that gets a home inspection there becomes the quandary of what to do next.
The issues become in most cases an issue the selling agent or listing agent needs to deal with sooner or later.
It creates a possible nightmare for the listing agent.
Like in the first post see it here. http://actvra.in/49jP
The contractors used on this home were not in focus when they did the work to the home.
Let's take a look at the new roof that was installed a couple of years ago.
Number one issue is that they did an overlay. This will save costs for the owners, but it will have a effect on the home over the years. Reducing the life expectancy of the new roof.
Especially when the venting is not what is is supposed to be. The can vents were never removed but just shingled around. they were never checked to see if they were even in operational shape.
Take a look at this can vent with a view from the attic.
This can vent hole was anly about 2/3 of what it was supposed to be. This limits the flow of air from the attic.
This next shot is of the ridge venting that was installed and is worthless.
Why do you ask if it is worthless?
The ridge venting was not cut out to allow for the air flow.
This 2,000 SQFT home has only Two 12x16 gable vents that are actually installed correctly.
This means the home is in need of proper attic venting. Why was the ridge venting installed and not cut out?
There must have been no permit pulled on the roof install either.
This shoddy workmanship should have been found by the local inspector. But with no permit. No inspection.
So the question remains.
Are the good days really over for good?
This is why you always get a "FULL Home Inspection" by a certified inspector. For the peace of mind.
