I just thought some of you guys might enjoy seeing this classic repair. The homeowner installed a new furnace in the attic and cut out all the bracing to make room. Rafters in the area were cracked in half, so it seems like he cut out all the bracing, then had an ‘Oh ****e!’ moment a couple of days later when the roof started collapsing and then devised this classic repair! Of course you know he was following me around the entire inspection saying ‘This house is perfect! There are no issues at all! This buyer is getting the best deal in the history of real estate sales!’

It still makes me smile that sellers and agents don’t realize how the more they talk up the house, the more suspicious we tend to become!
