Missed on inspection. One, Two and Three. Not number Four though.

This pocket sale home was sitting pretty s a picture when I arrived at the home for the home inspection for the buyer.

Inspection One was when the local building inspector comes out and finds nothing and the C of O was issued.

Inspections Two and Three, this was when the home was inspected by a local home inspector. Not once but twice when the owners got transferred out of town for their jobs.

This home has been sold at least Three times.

Now we are in the Fourth sale. Take a look at what I found when the home inspection took place on this home.

Fourth Inspection findings.

This is simply amazing why this would not had been found by the "Other inspectors".

Nice home ready for inspection.

At first glance the home looks like a great home. And it is. But there are issues. Issues that needs to be addresses as soon as possible.Warped Soffit.

This warped soffit was a major clue there was an issue from above. The mast seems to have pulled to one side of the hole that by the way was never sealed.

I found the issue.

The wind was blowing at 40 plus miles an hour, but the inspection had to move forward wind or no wind. The roof inspection was where I found the issue with the cause for the warping soffit. Take a look at this.

Boot not installed on electrical mast. 

It is beyond me that after three inspections on this home this issue was never found.

There was actually another inspection on this home. It was the electrical inspector. Why did he not see this issue either?

My guess is that the "Fifth Inspection was the charm in this case".

What is wrong with inspectors just doing the correct job each and every time they inspect? Is that too much to ask?

Have  great day every One.

I know I know they were afraid of heights.  They put the cameras on poles and took several pictures and used only the ones that made the roof look good.  Be thankful Uncle Bob doesn't read this.....

Hi Irma,

Yes it does. I think there should be a mentoring program for all inspectors with little or no certifications.

Have a great day in Turlock.

Hi Anita,

This is not the first home I have found with the same issue on a new home. Probably the same builder.

Have a nice day in Warner Robins.

Hi Toni,

When they say it was a drive by inspection. Now you know what that means. Local inspectors seem to do this a lot.

Have  very good day in Trinity.

Hi Michael,

This is nothing short of stupid what they didn't see or find when inspecting the home in the past.

Have a nice weekend in Brentwood.

Hi James,

Many inspectors will not get on roofs. But the roof is the most important parts of the home.

Enjoy the day in Rogers my friend.

Hi Jay,

Since day one. The roofer when they were roofing the home should have installed the boot. Where was the quality control on this home? Out to lunch  think.

Have a nice weekend in Bristow.

Hi Joan,

After all the years of being this way, you are right. How many home owners never look at the roof?

Have a good day in Denver.

Hi Bob,

Always get a home inspection for the buyers. Use the inspectors who actually report the issues. No glossing here.

Have a nice day in Vegas my friend.
