Problem Areas

Introduction

The Home Inspectors job is to provide a general, overall inspection of the home - its that simple. The Inspector will be listing "areas of concern". Following are some areas of concern that Franktown Building Inspections Inc. have found. We hope your home is free of these conditions.

1. Air Conditioning Systems
Air conditioners should sit flat and level on a concrete pad - not suspended from a wall by a steel cable.

Aluminum wiring used for branch circuits - Potential fire hazard.

Basement walkouts, unless properly designed, can be a source of leakage and structural problems - Here you my have to sand bag in the spring or when it rains.
