The home was already inspected......

I am inspecting a home on Wednesday and this is the flashing I saw between home and garage when setting up the Radon monitor. A relocation company hired an inspector to inspect the property several months ago. The garage firewall is below this area and appears it was taken down and put back with nails, various screws, etc. to investigate a problem.

I had one of those this morning. The re-lo company's inspector's report was on the kitchen counter. Apparently the fellow didn't check out the attic or look in the closets. No mention was made about the leak around the fireplace flue-pipe.

Well, completed the inspection. Home not winterized properly did not unplug the power vent for water heater now that and thermocouple is shot. On the counter was a form showing the other inspector came back to the property after his inspection and signed that all the things he found was corrected like loose shower handles, leaking thermopane windows.

The shower handle was fixed by someone jamming little pieces of wood behind it, thermopane windows not fixed. His report claims that there is only a gas fireplace in the master bedroom, I guess in the last several months someone entered a vacant home built a chimney, added a fireplace in the main level den, used it and did not clean it...Nice. On top of that the owner had a "roofer" come out and say that the flashing in my first post was correct and that it would not leak. I told them to find another roofer. And finally, I am convinced that he did not even attempt to go into the attic!!! Whew, I feel better now thank you.

Gotta Love It.
