Tinned Copper Rubber Insulated Cloth Wiring

Tinned copper rubber insulated cloth wiring was commonly used for home wiring between the 1930’s to 1950’s and is frequently misidentified by home inspectors. The copper was “tinned” which gives it a silver or aluminum like appearance to prevent corrosion of the wiring due to the high sulfur content of the rubber insulation. As this wiring ages the insulation becomes very brittle and prone to cracking and deterioration, potentially exposing live electrical conductors which could create a fire or electrocution hazard. In Florida, the presence of this type of wiring may limit the available options for homeowners insurance until it has been replaced by a licensed electrician. If you are uncertain or concerned about the condition of your home’s electrical system,  contact us today to schedule your home inspection.

Improperly Vented Bathroom Vent

We frequently find bathroom ventilation fans that are not properly vented to the exterior of the home. Large amounts of moisture are discharged into the attic space during showering which may cause moisture damage or conditions conducive to mold growth.

New Construction Inspection

Just because its “New Construction” doesnt always mean it is in perfect condition and this example shows the importance of having your new construction home inspected. We performed an inspection for the buyer and the roof was covered in broken tiles. The roofers were working on the next house over at the time of inspection. The roofing contractor ended up replacing 119 tiles for the buyer. Our clients 3 nextdoor neighbors had us out to inspect their new roofs and 2 of the 3 were in similar condition.

New Construction Inspection

Here is another reason to have your new construction home inspected. At the start up of this new A/C system, it was discovered that the condensate drain line was disconnected or not properly connected in the wall behind the unit. Condensate was seen flowing out from behind the wall and under the tile flooring where it finally ran out on to the garage floor. The only way to repair was by cutting a hole in the wall from the bedroom closet that was adjacent to this area. It could have been a lot worse and caused a lot more damge if it was not discovered so quickly.
