Even when it's super hot outside, we still go into the attic to check things out. We don't skimp on our services!
Make sure you are getting a quality home inspection done on your next house by giving us a call first! We inspect homes, condos, mobile homes, wells/septic systems, pools, sprinklers, and crawl spaces!
I noticed this home the other day. While it’s not uncommon for people to cover attic vents on the roof, it IS a bad idea. Here’s why you shouldn't cover your attic vents.
Forget Manic Mondays, Tuesdays seem to be the worst! Are you feeling like this roof support today, too?
We see a lot of people blocking their attic vents in the wintertime, but this was one of the more creative methods! 😁
While we appreciate the ingenuity, don't block your vents! The thought is to retain heat in the attic, but this isn't really necessary and you will retain moisture, which can be a big problem. So leave the seats in the bathroom, and let your attic get airflow!
In case you've ever wondered, this is what knob and tube wiring looks like!
This is a really old wiring system, and it was phased out in the 40's. If you see this in your house, make sure no insulation is touching it; it can overheat and cause a fire. You should also have an electrician evaluate it due to it's age.
Both crawl spaces and attics are notorious for random items. In this attic I found a case of beer!
Makes me wonder if...
Workers had a happy hour after installing the insulation? Husband wanted a man cave but ran out of space? Mom just needed a minute??
What do you think is going on?
