How much is to much?


Recommended Posts

Pry bar and a couple of bricks? I would say fix it. It shouldn't cause any sleep loss for the buyers or the home owners to fix that.

Maybe some for you, though. The realtor will stop sending clients your way because you put "too much detail" in the report. [:)]

Here is an A/C unit installed around 2004. Obviously not level, but... When would you call it? I did mention it to my client and am working the report now. My initial thought is repair is needed.

I call it when I can see it. If it's subtle enough that I can't see it then I don't call it.

Except for Lennox. They actually *require* that the unit slope away from the building at "2 in. per 5 ft"

Be careful with the pry bar. Most of these are made from fiberglass and foam nowadays. They need continuous bearing beneath. If you try to lift them with a pry bar, or perch one corner on a brick, they can break.

Wow. Mine are made of steel. Probably a Chinese pry bar sold at Wally World.

I may be picky, but if you get too much above about a 5 degree slope, I usually say something about it. After all, it isn't usually too hard to carefully raise the low end at that point.

Why? And what would you say?

My pry bar would probably be a stout 2 X 4 under the concrete pad. But I agree, must do it carefully.
