Rapid sump pump cycles at home inspection

Here is a video that demonstrates the importance of controlling exterior water and the importance of a sump pump if a home has a basement. Without this sump pump the basement would have flooded. With this risk it would be a good idea to have a backup sump pump system.

This is a back up system I recommend for homes with city water.

Gas leaks still evident during home inspection

I inspected this home a few weeks ago. I was asked to come by to check the work of whoever repaired it. Unfortunately there are still leaks. Not huge leaks however there really should not be any.

Always get the gas lines checked when you are buying a home and then get them checked every few years.

Gas Line Warranty in Ohio

I sometimes get called last minute to do an inspection that was forgotten or that another inspector can not do. Today I was asked to do a gas line inspection/warranty. I was able to squeeze it in on the way home from a Reynoldsburg Ohio home inspection earlier today. Good thing because there was a total of 5 locations of gas leaks. Two of the larger ones where captured on “film”Ohio Gas line warranty inspection

This home also recently had the gas lines checked by the gas utility company before turning the gas on. Amazing level of service.

Gas leak found during Marysville Ohio home inspection

Here is a very short video of a gas leak found during a home inspection in Marysville, Ohio.  I have found similar leaks at other cities as well so it is not just an issue found in this one city. I contacted the gas company and they came right out and fixed it. I left a message for the listing agent, so far he has not called back  for at least two days now.

Creative home owner made a gable vent that can be closed

Some people are very creative in what they do. I give them credit for effort and creativity even if it something that should not normally be done. While at a recent Ohio home inspection I found it again.  The example of that is in the home attic here where the former home owner created a pulley system to open and close one of the gable vents.

The problem with this is that attic should always be ventilated, especially in the winter when condensation can become a big issue.
