I'm tired and giving up.

Over the years, there is a lot to be proud of.

Many times when inspecting I find issues that are a safety issue's that could be life threatening.

This makes me feel good for the home owners. Not that they have repairs to make, but the possible life saving issue were found.

Each home has their issues that need to be taken care of even if the home is not sold.

It's supposed to work.

No matter what get's installed in or on a home, "It's supposed to work".

Parts on a home get tired and simply give up as they wear out over time. Nothing is forever.

I had not seen vents like this in a long time. But when inspecting homes the turbin vents need to be inspected for proper operation.

On this home they were not.

Both were tired and wanting to be removed. It looks like they gave up and wanted to just fall asleep on the job.

Take a look at these vents that wanted or did just give up.

Bad turbin vent.Bad turbin vent.

These vents were worn out and leaning so badly, if there would have been rain then it would have went into the attic area with ease.

The vent on the right had been trying to work. But it had almost worn all the way through the guide bars on the sides and no longer will work properly.

Replace the units as soon as possible. The summer heat is about to begin in earnest.

This is why you always get a "Home Inspection" by a Honest certified inspector. For the peace of mind. Call Clint at 1-575-706-5586

Have a great day every one.

Clint, what would cause the vents to get so bent out of shape? High winds?

I am sure that I am repeating a prior observation but being comment #79, I am not going to read all the other comments. Sorry…

At least one of those vents should be hitting the bumper bars. If so, the racket would tell one all they need to know…time for a fix. The noise would also drive you crazy!

Hi Michael,

The winds over the years did this. They have a lot of force on them.

Have a good evening in Northern Virginia.

Hi John,

The bars were just about worn all the way through. I bet when and if it did spin at all, it did make a lot of noise.

Have a great day in California.

In Oklahoma City we don't see much of these any more. In new construction and when roofs are replaced everything is power vents now.

Hi Joe,

Power vents are a great thing. No power needed if the turbin vents are installed.

But you are right, power venting is the new style venting.

Have a great day in Oklahoma.

Thanks for the post.  We had these air turbins on our home in Dallas.  The one big benefit was there is no motor to these to "give up."

Clint, Time is a killer. Even the best of us will get worn and torn and then start to lean a bit ;)

Sometimes it is easier to buy a new one than trying to fix the old one.

Maybe it was a case?
