Ponyboy Posted December 14, 2009 Report Share Posted December 14, 2009 Afternoon inspection today has been vacant since April, heat off until the inspection today, built in 1999. Slab-on-grade daylight basement. No vapor barrier on the attic insulation. Get into the attic and it is soaking wet. All of the OSB is moldy, wet and slightly swelled. Water is dripping everywhere and the insulation and trusses are wet with water dripping off of the sheathing. The eave vents were blocked with the cardboard insulation dams. In the garage the slab is spider cracking and water stains were present at all of the cracks. A few larger cracks clearly look like water coming in through the cracks. The basement laundry room did smell musty and some mold was observed on the lower sheetrock which is against the foundation wall. The vinyl floor also had purple staining consistent with moisture damage. Could slab moisture be making it through the house and condensing in the attic?
