News and Events
These pictures depict examples of every day issues that our inspectors and home buyers encounter during a home inspection.
Chimney Cap: This is what happens when cracks in a chimney cap are not repaired in a timely manner. These small cracks can lead to the chimney needing to be completely rebuilt.
Crawl Space: Rusted out plenum found in crawl space.
Double Tapping: Double tapping of main disconnect
Mortar: These pieces of mortar on this balcony are from a failing parapet wall. This building had been converted within the past 5 years. Unit owners in older conversion buildings need to pay attention to what work was done during the conversion.
Rusted Venting: Rusted out water heater flue pipe allowing CO into the basement - which also has a basement apartment.
Funny: A plunger was used to seal an old plumbing vent through the roof
