Did an inspection on a house built in 1988.
It had been poorly keptup and stupid, unprofessional repairs and 'improvments' really messed up the exterior. The orginal exterior (as best as I can tell) is clapboard, but it was covered with this tongue and groove, fiberboard panelling with roofing type granuals on the outer face.
I heard someone (I don't remember who or I would be contacting them) who said that the company what made the stuff got sued and there are moneys available for remediation. Does anyone know anything about this?
Since the basic structure (oak framing!) is still in good shape, I was thinking that if I can turn the buyer on to the remediation, it might help.
The home is 69" x 24" perimeter, 3 stories, on a limestone block foundation that esxtends more tnan 4' above grade and otherwise in pretty good shape. There are just some areas where water has gotten in.
