You Know the House Smells Musty
Crawl space with no ventilation, no vapor barrier, and very high humidity. A perfect breeding area for mold.
Beige line in the center of the cabinet is an energized electrical line that was left when a garbage disposal was removed. The wire is LIVE and a possible electrocution hazard.
They Wondered Why their House Smelled
Plumbing vent cap still on – drains at this end of the house drained very slowly.
Nightmare that Worked Out
Heavily deteriorated roof sheathing and attic rafters due to very high moisture in attic. This was caused by the dryer vent being vented into the attic.
They Didn’t Think it Mattered
Dryer vented into attic – This caused extensive damage requiring a new roof, new sheathing, removal of moisture saturated insulation and mold mitigation. Total cost of improper venting over $25,000! Seller paid all cost, buyer was very happy!
Plumbing and Sawzalls Don’t Mix
Floor joist damaged by plumber. Plumbers should not be allowed to own or rent a Sawzall!
You Have Got to be Kidding
Unstable beam supported on improper support. Floors sloped above the beam.
Seller Said AC Works Fine I Bet
Repo house AC, buyer was just told that the AC was older. Yes it is older but also missing all components inside.
