    "Functioning as ANYthing (intended, designed, advertised)" is nothing more than just "functioning". I suppose a furnace could be installed improperly, yet still warm the building without CO sharing airspace with the residents. It's "functioning", doing its bit as a furnace, but that can have little or nothing to do with a proper installation. I'm new to this, but that strikes me as a BS phrase designed to make someone sound high brow. And, apparently, in some places it is functioned and intended..

    Very few inspections of mine over the last 14 years had reported repair costs less than 4x the inspection fee. Certainly less than 1 in 20. That includes several hundred newly constructed homes. Caveat emptor.

    "Hi, Chad? This is Pushy McPushface from Howard Hanna. Can you do an inspection on Monday starting at 6PM? "Hi Pushy, I'm sorry, I can't start that late- I need daylight for the entire inspection." "Oh. How long does it take to inspect 1,700 sf ranch built in 1972?" "Three to four hours." "Oh. I'll have to get back to you." ...and that is why I have nothing to do with realtors.

    'The door has a little damage on it but works just fine. Just so you know I didn't miss it.'

    It is a good example of when people apply decorative building elements without any consideration of how the faux parts/materials would be used if they were the real thing. One of the most common examples of this is when I see faux stone or bricks installed on cantilevers. It looks ridiculous to me.

    Why heck, Kurt. That's one of the nicest ways I've ever seen it said.
