Nice questions Marc !!



2-Roof vent pipe shows signs of a patch repair. Recommend further evaluation by a qualified roofer.
Issues: The vent top is low especially for an area with snow. The flashing which sheds water is of a long lasting type using soft metallic lead: however it appears uneven and may have been torn or damaged. The patch is suspect, as no patch should be required when using this type of flashing.

3 -
no (microwave heating of water)
yes(cup to hand)
Edit based on instruction to fill in the blank:
Heating your cup of coffee in the microwave ___ (radiant)____
You almost burnt your hand on the cup taking it out!__ (conductive)_____

4 - All but E are leading causes of foundation failure.
Edit based on instruction to select a single best answer:
The best single answer is D.

5 - “Psychosomatic response
(Or perhaps the inspector “missing something”).

I have received 4 text messages & 1 voice mail in the last hour from someone in a higher order than myself. I have agreed to be bound by the messages (could be veiled threats).

So… … … Mr. Bryce Nesbitt is allowed to edit his responses without being in jeopardy of the evil disqualification.

Thank you for you understanding.

Speak to Kevin?

Kevin Who?
