Watched an episode of Holmes Inspection last week. Told the client(who had a problem with freezing pipes) that builders shouldn’t run copper through a cold zone, such as above a garage. Thinks the home inspector should have warned his client who had purchased a 7 year old house.
When they decided to open the ceiling, the ceiling had been spray-foamed(which btw is his SOP when he renovates) however the builder missed the small area near the end of the pipe which explained the freezing. Had that part been BUILT properly, no freezing would have taken place. Yes, lets really nail the Home Inspector for this one.
He had his electrician come in and complain that a 7 year old house wasn’t built with a large enough panel and had to be replaced. All because a receptacle too close to a sink needed to be a GFCI and they wanted to add 2 new circuits for his surge protection. Why not throw on a full generator and complain the Home Inspector should have caught that in case the Russians attack and power goes out?
Ever notice when he brings in his cronies, they ALWAYS hang the Home Inspector to be tarred and feathered but when a recommended repair takes place and is done wrong, all these guys say is “yup, that was wrong”.
