Inspection fails roundup Summer & Fall 2021

Inspection fails roundup – Summer & Fall 2021

My team of inspectors and I see A LOT while out looking at homes. Some of it good, some of it bad, and some of it just plain funny.

So today I’m trying something new and sharing some photos from jobs that make you go “…huh?”

This is all in good fun, so don’t be mean to any of the anonymous houses featured here. All homes have their weird stuff!

With that out of the way, let’s take a look…

1. Don’t forget the corner

a corner of a house with a beam overlapping the wall. next to the beam the wall and baseboard are painted white. behind the beam, they've been left brown.

This is a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it paint job. At least the lines are even! There are a lot of questions here, which makes it kind of fun. Is this wall a modernist art piece? Did they run out of paint? You decide…

2. Don’t leave it hanging

an attic with hanging bits of duct tape

Hey – duct tape just works for those quick fixes. But make sure to give it a fresh wrap and don’t leave it all hanging out in the breeze. You don’t want the raccoons to start tugging.

3. Just a liiiiitle off

an uneven kitchen cabinet

This is one of those things that someone is never going to notice, or it’s going to drive them crazy every single time they use their kitchen.

4. A bit of an incline

a driveway with a steep incline in the middle

Just drive really slow on this driveway and you’ll be fine…probably. Also you might not want to park in the dent while it’s raining.

5. One way to handle rainwater

a downspout off of a roof connected to a tube

a tube connected to a downspout that ends in the middle of a driveway

Well…it does drain the rainwater from the gutters. It’s not exactly what we would call “up to code” but hey…waters your lawn too!

I’m just sayin’
