pictures of problems found

Recommended Posts

Since things are kinda slow overall in the inspection world, why dont we share some pictures from jobs? It's good education and a good use of time.

Just one or two from each person who wants to participate. I'll start with these two.

In this one, the 2x8 joist is only nailed to a 2x4 that is nailed to the band board. You can see the gap on the bottom part. There is no bearing material hidden under the ridged insulation panels.

In this picture you see a non-IC recessed lighting fixture with insulation packed around it. There were 6 or 7 of these in this attic.

Great day for stories here on TIJ. Mike and the crazy Russian realtor and now this. I applaude you for leaving the $. Can't say what I would have done, maybe turned it in for a reward? I once found a baggie with a few hundred pills in an attic. I flushed them. Another time a bunch of porno films fell on my head when I opened the panel.
