Red Brick Home Inspections
WHY HAVE A HOME INSPECTION
Shown here are a few common defects found throughout various homes that have been inspected.
Each home and it's condition will vary, with defects found in new builds as well as older homes.
Incorrectly installed appliances, this dishwasher looks like the door is left ajar but was actually installed this way.
Incorrectly installed and fixed dryer ducting leaking warm, moist air into the attic.
Incorrectly supported decking and stairway, which overtime could fail and collapse.
This picture shows detected moisture coming from a bathroom exhaust fan above.
New home builds have their share of defects also, the washer hook ups shown are missing the washing machine drain piping.
In the attic we can discover broken or split rafters and trusses.
Old and tired water heaters and furnaces are common issues found.
Insulation that is missing, sagging or has never been brought up to date.
Dirty or blocked dryer vents which are a fire hazard and require cleaning.
