Agent calls on Monday to set up this mornings new construction inspection.
First thing I ask is the builder completely done.
Agent says yes.
I pull up and there are about 6 vehicles in drive/street.
(I new then it was not done)
I start on the exterior inspection and note about 10 issues and I am only like 1/4 around the house.
Anti siphon missing, poorly caulked/flashed siding/Cement siding had large gaps and all the caulk was falling out. Exposed wiring.
I did not get a good picture of the Hardie cement board. Every seem had deteriorated caulk.
Decide enough already in 5 minutes. Talk to builder for 2 minutes, enough to know I do not need to talk anymore or I will start swinging.
Garage full of builder debris. House trashed with debris/Can not even see floors. Contractor working on kitchen appliances.
I meet with client and agent and tell them this house is nowhere near ready for a inspection. Also wanted a radon test. (Doors wide open)
So I wasted 1.5 hours time and 30 miles of gas.
I took a few pics. Did not take any of the mess in the house.
By the way I thought the walk out windows at the basement should have protective covers as it seemed a small child or even a goofy inspector like me could fall and get hurt.
What you think!!
