Our home inspection company inspected a home in the Columbus Worthington area a few weeks ago and observed these floor tiles in fantastic condition. Due to age and other indications, they could be asbestos containing. If in good condition no need to have them removed.
Likely asbestos floor tiles in perfect condition in an older home. When in good condition there is no need to remove them. Keep them for the 60’s vibe or cover over them.
Decks are nice to have on your home. Decks extend the living space of your home to include part of the exterior. Decks however are often not built correctly. When we do home inspections in Central Ohio we often find decks that are in need of repairs and improvement.
Recently there was deck collapse at a Dublin Ohio condo raising awarness of the need for safe decks.
We frequently will find windows with issues such as broken seals, springs not tight enough, cracked glass or the tilt in latches broken. This window found during a condo inspection in Columbus Ohio had a combination.
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.
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.
