A Closer Look



This chimney was a beautiful feature on a nice estate home. Closer inspection revealed that the entire weight of this
chimney rested on wood timbers located in the attic. Moisture damage or fatigue of these timbers could result in
collapse of the chimney. As a result of our inspection, a structural engineer
recommended the removal of the brick chimney.


Inspection of the crawlspace at this residence revealed improper
foundation supports and moisture damaged beams.



When electronic detection equipment indicated moisture in the wall behind the tile shower,
we lifted the carpet and found evidence of leaking due to a faulty shower pan.


It took determined effort wriggling in narrow
crawlspaces to find these plumbing problems.



The exhaust pipe on this heater was not seated properly and has disconnected. The exhaust pipe also has been taped, which is unacceptable.
The exhaust pipe does not have the 1” clearance from wood or other combustible materials. Problems like these could result in the
introduction of carbon monoxide into the crawlspace, attic or living space.



Inspection of this property revealed defective ductwork and water in the emergency pan of the
condensation removal system. The plastic sheathing on the flexible duct work is
defective. Replacement is recommended.



This roof appeared to be acceptable when viewed from the
ground, however a closer inspection revealed hail damage.



The electrical inspection begins at the service entrance. This service mast is
tilting, allowing water to run through the gap at the base.


Improper modifications such as these
may result in fire or safety hazards.
