President and Inspector for Shipshape Home Inspections llc
Im here to find what the untrained eye might miss
I go the extra mile
Hire someone who will get up on roofs, get into attics, and get dirty in crawlspaces. These are critical areas of a house that need some extra examination.
Attics are a critical structural area that should always be inspected if possible. I try to get into every attic that is accessible and safe so my clients can be aware of possible major issues such as this broken structural truss chord (one or two). Thankfully my clients hired Shipshape to know of any major issues like this before closing.
It is critical to get a good look at the structure of the house if possible. Many hidden issues can dwell in crawlspaces. Plumbing leaks are also very common issue found in crawlspaces. Here there was an open sewer line that was dumping sewage on to the crawlspace floor. This can cause structural damage and health hazards.
Roofs in the Florida heat do not last the usual life expectancy. The heat causes the shingles to deteriorate. When a strong storm or hurricane blows by you can have weak shingles such as this one, tear off. This is now an entry point for water intrusion.
