  1. Possibly the worst home inspection website I've ever seen. Nothing about it makes me want to hire you.

  2. Hi Don, The above is very honest feedback. People visit sites to see and meet the inspector they might be hiring. Who is your "team"? What are each of their qualifications and experience? It doesn't even mention what area. It doesn't show a location to indicate it's a legit business. No need to tell people why a home inspection is needed. They already know and are searching for a competent candidate. There's nothing in there that would ever result in your site showing up in a search - ever. Also, your meta tags are useless for search indexing. Typo and punc

  3. That's structural terra cotta. historicbldgs.com/terra_cotta.html If it is vitrified (and not just shiny from being wet) and the long edges are rounded, it could be telephone tile. historicbldgs.com/telephone_tile.html If it's not vitrified, then the shell is quite brittle. Ask your contractor to show you how well he drills the sides of flower pots.

I never thought letting even more water into a

Don't take offence to this as my first websites were horrible and I haven't updated my current site in years.

  6. For a while Ruud used Monel tanks. They'll last forever. I figure that I'll keep my water heater running until we develop the technology to "beam" it out.

  7. Taping the joints was never recommended or required. In fact, with listed B-vents it's prohibited - always has been. If we're talking about a Category I furnace (hot exhaust) there should be negative pressure in the vent anyway - never positive pressure. That's part of the definition of a Category I furnace. The furnace motor does not "push" the exhaust through. The exhaust rises by buoyancy, creating negative pressure behind it. The draft inducer (the thing you're calling the furnace motor) only serves to draw a regulated amount of air across the burners - it does not "push" air through

  8. Remember - only one sheet per occurance! After use, you should always take it with you. You know, "Leave the house just like you found it".

  9. My preference would be Ladders, Camera, Suretest, Moisture meter. Anything else that costs more than a hundred can wait.
