I got an e-mail this morning from a customer that I did a Home Inspection for a few months back. He said the Cable TV guy was in the attic and told him he had a truss with a cracked post, and it should get repaired. He said that he had a Home Inspection and was not told about it… so he sent me an unhappy e-mail with these 4 pictures.
I told him I spent a fair amount of time in his attic, and if he goes back to the Inspection, he can see several photos I took in the attic of electrical issues. However, I do agree that I missed it, and that it does need to be repaired. I explained that it’s a fairly easy repair, and can be performed in about an hour, and I would like to come take care if it for him, at no charge of course. I thought about telling him to just have it repaired and send me the bill, but I might get a bill for a few hundred dollars, as where I can fix it for about $15.00, in an hour, and it’s local. I ran a Home Repair and Remodeling business for many years before this, and have repaired quite a few of these cracked truss posts.
Has anyone ever went back and fixed an item they missed?
