  1. If the buyer walked that faucet likely was not the only problem you found. The listing agent was likely used to the "other" kind of inspector who never causes a deal to go down.
  2. With that age they have to be "Patina".
  3. T'was 6 days before Christmas, and all through the town, people wore masks, that covered their frown. The frown had begun way back in the spring when a global pandemic changed everything.

  9. IRC calls for metal chimney cap to made so that water drains off. See pics of new cap not draining. Do you think the cap is not designed right, or is installation the problem?
  10. Likely not just the splash but also the singing.
