Does your home inspector get into tight spaces? Does he go in every attic space possible? How about the crawlspace?
We here at Hero Home Inspections do! We get into every space humanly possible, and have equipment to help us get into spaces that other inspectors can't.
Why is this so important? Think about where people cut corners and hide or miss issues - the areas that no one sees. That is why we work so hard to get in there.
This image is a good example of why we work so hard to get into spaces where other inspectors won't. We found this structural issue in a crawlspace that was very difficult to get into. Someone apparently thought this structural beam was in the way and cut it - then repaired it improperly.
So if you need a thorough home inspector to get into tight spaces, contact us, Hero Home Inspections!
One of the most important things to look at when buying a home, is one of the items that is most overlooked - your grading.
Grading is the slope of the ground around your home. It can either be toward your home, away from your home, or neutral (flat). The obvious one that is most desirable is away from your home. So what is considered "good" grading or a "good" slope of the ground away from your home?
As you can imagine, many organizations disagree on many things - except for this. The overall consensus of mot organizations is that a %5 grade is a good rule of thumb.
