High winds and roofs don't mix. A follow up. When I do a roof inspection, you just never know what you may find. I normally take about a dozen pictures to catch any defects or damages that may be present at the time of the inspection. Very rarely do I have to take so many shots of a homes roof. T...

Today, I'm making the call. After my recent post about a struggling homeowner that wanted to get help from his bank and the bank turned a deaf ear. The post in case you missed it.

Snow, and it's adverse affects for inspecting a home. Yes I know. we don't get that much snow here in Carlsbad, New Mexico. It's usually gone the next day. But this time we still have a lot of snow left from our latest storm. It dumped about a foot of snow on us in two days of falling. This home ...

Electrical problems? I'd say so. There I was doing another home inspection when I came to the electrical system. Wow, what a nightmare. They had upgraded the service portion to the home, but never finished the job.   Look to the right and you will see the dreaded "fuse boxes". Note the boxes with...
