When to keep your mouth shut and when to speak up. Wrong is wrong.
I have been known to speak my mind. But when it comes to the safety of a family I need to voice my opinion even when the opinion was not solicited.
Case in point.
I did a home inspection on a home last summer. The home sold but had a few issues that needed to be addressed for the buyer.
One of the issues the home had was the Chimney not having a chimney cap on it. This was letting the rain, leaves and birds into the chimney area.
In the reoport I had this as an issue.
I recommended the buyer have a "Chimney cap" installed for the safety of the fire place and the chimney stack.
I was at a home inspection Yesterday right next door to the home that was inspected this past summer.
I remembered the home and most of the issues in the report.
When I was on the roof of the home I was inspecting I saw the so called "Uncle Bob repair".
Take a look at this picture and tell me what the issue really is now that a "Cap has been installed".
All I could think of was Really!
Do you think I should call the buyer and tell them of the issues I had seen?
This is why you always get a "Trust but verify inspection" for the repairs done to homes when you buy a home.
This situation could turn out to be a deadly combination for the new owners.
This is why you always get a "Home Inspection" And a "Trust but Verify Inspection" by a certified inspector. For the peace of mind.
