At IM Home Inspections, we often have crazy finds. Here are some of the craziest finds of 2022!
Creepy Doll in Crawlspace
Why did someone put this here? It couldn’t be a mistake The only question is, is it a load-bearing baby?
I Always Feel Like Someone is Watching Me
Sometimes our inspectors are not alone when inspecting the crawlspace!
This Is Not How To Hold Up a House
We really do not recommend you try DYI repairs to the structural supports under a home.
Shocking Fire Hazard
A breaker panel should have breakers in it. Someone connected the house wires directly to the bus bar. Look closely and you will see the wires are scorched. It’s a wonder the house didn’t burn down, and that whoever did this didn’t electrocute themselves!
New Shower Not Right
Just because it’s a brand-new house does not mean it’s done right. This shower door is just not even close to being installed correctly.
Pool With A View of a Pool
A flat roof should be designed so that water can not accumulate and will dissipate within 24 hours of rain. This roof was holding enough water to make it seem like they had a 2nd swimming pool!
A Dryer With No Air
When we arrived, we were at first wondering why this brand-new dryer had been red-tagged by the gas company. But then we quickly realized the problem. The laundry room was receiving no airflow. Usually, there is a vent above the door or in the door itself to allow air to flow in. A gas dryer requires combustion oxygen to work, and without airflow, the dryer would burn through all the oxygen in the room and potentially suffocate anyone in the room.
Hoarder House of Horrors
The best way to inspect a house is to inspect it when the house is empty. However, sometimes that can not happen. Luckily our team was prepared for the extreme circumstances.
