We love to inspect old homes. Not all home inspectors do. In fact, some will not even book an inspection for a home more than 50 yrs old. Historic homes have features like cramped crawlspaces, damp basements, additions on top of additions, 'upgraded' systems that snake through and around previously 'upgraded' systems, and 100 years worth of dust in the hot, unventilated attic. Call us gluttons for punishment, but we just can't get enough of inspecting historic homes. They challenge our knowledge of historic building practices and materials. They challenge our knowledge of building forensics. They amaze us with their attention to detail and quality of workmanship and materials. We love working with people who love old homes. They are a special breed, willing to deal with the quirks and irregularities in exchange for the quality, history and permanence of an historic home. We have inspected dozens of homes older than 100 years, and many more in the 50-100 year old range. From shotgun houses to plantation houses that are listed on state and national historic registries. If you are considering the purchase of an old home, let Residential Quality Analysis help you ensure that you have all of the information that you need to make an informed decision.
