Water heater vent


Recommended Posts

I found this surprise during an inspection yesterday. Top portion of a propane fueled water heater. Bottom portion looked ok. House had just been re-roofed - new flashing for everything including this. I guess the roofers didn't have the time or the desire to point it out. House is 30+ years old. WH is 12.

For the new guys--you need to get up in the attic and walk around (if safety permits).You need adequate light,proper training, enough time to fully inspect the attic area, and the confidence to red flag it. Missing something like that, will cost some one their health or a life.That exhaust will find its way into the living space. The owners will never know what hit them [:-banghea
