I have a two story house.  The dark blue rectangle indicates my A/C register in my kitchen. Blue means cold.  The wide lighter blue appears to show my ceiling is cooler then the other parts of my ceiling.  I think I have an air leak in that particular air duct. But we can’t “see” the air leak with a standard photo. Infrared allows us to help find otherwise hidden defects.  #homebuilder  #homeinspector  #thermalcamera #infrared

This energy hog and indoor air quality thief should be installed outside the building envelope (the indoor air space)...however, give them points, the homeowners have the right idea! . . #atticstairs #indoorairquality #insulation #hotattic #pulldownstairs #airseal #weatherstripping #homeinspector #homeinspectorlife #diyremodel #diycarpentry #handymancan #howtobasic #trimcarpenter #airleaks #airconditioning

See the Full Video on my Facebook Business Page!  Facebook.com/SafeHomeInspections . In our local area this “bleeding” is usually found on the down slope of a hillside, in sandy soil.  It’s not toxic, some plants love the iron rich soil but homeowners usually hate it.  If you have this issue on your property there isn’t a better reason, as you’ll see in this video, to call a landscape or soils contractor and have them design a french drain system to manage this water underground.  #newconstruction #customhomebuilder #homebuilder #builditright #homeinspector #homeinspection #ironoxide #frenchdrain #watermanagement #landscaperlife

In honor of the Kentucky Derby - we’re going for the “trifecta” in water heater mayhem.  It was a melting pot of “don’t do that”: 1️⃣ Pipe insulation is nice ... but this is too close. It’s melting and is a fire hazard.  2️⃣ This wire sends a signal to the security alarm horn ... but not any more. It’s melting and is a fire hazard.  3️⃣ Homeowners please leave the duct tape on the work bench. This area is too warm ... it’s melting and is a fire hazard.  4️⃣ Bonus! We noted the vent pipe is not connected to the draft hood which leaks deadly gas into the attic. 🔦Please have your home inspected by a professional home inspector. 👮🏼‍♂️We Speak House  #waterheaterfail #iccbsm18 #buildingcodessavelives #homeinspection #homeinspector #wespeakhouse #builditright #diyplumber #homemaintenance #atticinspection #diyremodel #kentuckyderby #trifecta
Lead in paint. Lead in water. Lead flashing. Smart money should bet on the flashing.  There are reports of 100 year old lead flashing still in service. It’s has been known as premium flashing because of its durability.  However - squirrels love ❤️ to munch on the soft metal.  Here, we pealed back the wrap to reveal a copper vent pipe.  Down in the attic - we find the pipe installed in 1962. They’re holding up beautifully.  This homeowner is set to enjoy another 50 years of service from the plumbing vent system.

We see this every day. Homeowners should be asking their gutter contractor to warrant the roof wear here - because the shingle manufacturer will not.  #gutterman #asphaltshingles #builditright #dontdothis #gutterfail #notsurewhytheydothis #homesweethome🏡 #safehomeinspections
👮🏼‍♂️ Your home inspector should be able to identify this condition. 🔦 The gray is the main power cable for the home. 🔦 The black is the A/C refrigerant line insulation.  #rats #mice #rodant #homemaintenance #diypestcontrol #homeinspection #safehomeinspections
✅ Homeowners Take Care  If you need to access your meter base this summer and find this condition - advance with caution.  Here - a cover screw has been lost and the cover is open. We slowly opened to uncover a one wasp nest. More to come!  #homeinspector #electrition #meterbase #waspstingdanger #homesweethome🏡 #homemaintenance #homecareservice #homecheckup #inspector
