Pulling strings for the seller. A call just might help them sell.

At  a past inspection there is a new home. Built in 2011 and ready to be sold for the owner.

The owner has to sell and move closer to the Veterans Administration hospital. The health of the buyer had taken a turn for the worse after the purchase of the new home just over a year ago.

Desert Sun Home Inspections did the inspection and sent the report.

There are issues with the way the install of the trunk line was done in the attic of the home.

I asked who built the home and who did the Heating and cooling for the home.

The seller did know so I asked the seller if I could call the Heating and cooling contractor to see if they would come out and finish the job they had already been paid for.

I called Paul the owner of the company and told him about the "issues" with the home. 

He said he would get back with me and would call me back. He then called me back in about an hour and was going to send a crew and himself to finish the job.

Issues with the trunk line.

Un insulated duct.

This trunk line was insulated. But not the last two foot of the line.

Heat loss would be great in this area if not insulated.

Hidden boot drop. Un Insulated.

There was a total of eight of these un insulated boot drops. This can cause substantial heating and cooling losses throughout the life of the home.

All the insulation was installed and the job was finished the right way.

No matter if it's the seller or buyer. I will try and help them to have a better life.

After all right is right.

Have a great day everyone.

Hi Anita,

I got a call yesterday from the Hvac company owner. He said it will not happen again. I told him I hope not or I will be calling again. LOL

Have a good day on the farm in Georgia.

Hi Patricia,

Now you know what else to look for when in your next attic.

Not. I can't see you in an attic. If you do better wear pants. LOL

Have a good weekend in Flower Mound Texas.

Hi Sharon,

The crews think that all right. Many don't finish things looking forward to getting done and having a adult beverage as soon as possible. That's what I think.

Have a nice day today.

Hi James,

He told me that if there was another job I inspected and i find a problem to let him know as soon as I find it so he can get it corrected.

Now that is a company to refer for future work.

Have a good day on the links in Rogers my friend.

Good Morning Clint:

Good on you.  it is good that they decided to come back out and complete what they were paid for.  with your inspection report they would have no ground to stand on in a court of law

Good job - ultimately! In this case obviously business owner was being responsible and the call was above and beyond the norm. Well done!

I never like to see the insulation attached to the metal trunk or boot with aluminum tape.  It should always be the nylon straps, with tape over that.

Hi Adrian,

The owner should have done a walk through seeing first hand the work had been completed. But this one did not do that.

Always trust your employees but visually verify.

Have a great Sunday in the Greater Seattle area.

Hi C. Lloyd,

I'm just glad the contractor was there when I called and has already been back to finish the job.

Now that is customer service.

Have a goo day in the Duke city.

Hello Gary,

I talked to him as he was responsible for the work that was not completed. Ultimately he is. That's why they finished the job in record time.

Thanks for the comment.

Hi Jay,

I see this when the insulation has terminated short of being completed correctly.

I think they did'nt want it to come loose so they taped it on.

Have a great day in Bristow my friend.

Hi James,

You are exactly right.

Right is right, they were paid for the job, they needed to finish the job even if it was a year later.

Have a good day off in Connecticut.
