Here is another installment in my series on the necessity for home inspections. Remember to check back often for more of these goodies over the next few days/weeks.

When purchasing a home, it is highly advisable that buyers obtain a home inspection from a qualified and licensed home inspector.

Why?

Well, the following are just a few issues found during normal home inspections... ( Photos and images generously provided by Structure Tech)

 

Home Inspections that sting
Home Inspections in Panama City FL

Dr. Frankenstein’s wall switch

We think this is a way to turn on a light switch to a room that has no access but-not sure! Believe it or not there are electronic ways to remotely operate lights with wireless switches.

Santa lost his boot

No, this isn’t a trash can. I think a good chimney cleaning is in order.

Dryer Vent

This would have been fine with only a few cleverly angled 90-degree elbows, and no vinyl at all. You won’t find this method in most dryer vent installation stories.

Which problem solver would you choose?

There are always options when it comes to buying a toilet – some better than others.

Leaking fill valve repair

Once Bubba caught the recycle/re-use bug, he just couldn’t stop. Even going to the extent of breaking the fill valve on his toilet for a chance to re-use this plastic container. Might be even smarter to replace the fill valve with a new one.

Flying Wallenda’s Family Home

Whoever goes up this ladder has more courage than brains. Maybe it would have been smarter to rent a lift for the day.

Watch Your Head!

Nothing wrong here, really. But it is an interesting storage idea, isn't it?

To Cool or Not to Cool that is the question!

Just guessing, but I don’t think this is how a mini-split works. The real question for this home inspector nightmare is, does it actually keep the room cool?

Plywood window well

Well I hope it’s at least treated plywood. There are very rigorous standards when it comes to building egress window wells. Best to check with your local building inspector before building something like this.

Pillars of the Earth

Lots of bad bricks here that a little tuck pointing may have prevented. At least it matches the rest of the chimney.
