With the push for more energy efficient building materials things bound to happen that were not intended. Look at windows. They have added a coating to better reflect the suns rays, the result is the windows are able to act like a slightly curved mirror and focus the suns rays like Archimedes supposedly did around 212 BC.
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.
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.
