Due to difficulty in filing all the winners for Best Defect Picture of the Year, I found it necessary to copy everything here for the end of the year.
My PC was not saving them as I wished and found it better here.
These are the current winners to Date;
Please, if I made an error, let me know.
And thanks for all the participation.

The lint can still get out if the flap can’t open…Right?

This home had many items that I could have entered into this months contest but I chose the water heater flue. As you can see in the pictures the single wall flue completely failed in the attic. The water heater was about 25 years old. There was no TPR valve at the water heater.
Marcel…(and anybody else who is interested)
Apparently, this has been around for a while, but I found it today. You can store what you want (up to 7 gig) and access it whenever you want. If your computer crashes, no problem, you’ve backed everything up and can get ir right back again.
All you need is a microsoft account, ie: live, hotmail et al
Thanks Brian, but it has to do with copy and paste.
Works best when kept in the Inachi system. Otherwise, it won’t paste properly from another source. Limited to 27 pictures as it is within their system.
Best Defect Picture for April
Joshua L. Fredrick
Yes, I lifted the rug. But only because I felt a slight depression in the floor. My report narrative:
An area of minor wood deterioration and/or slight void in the wooden flooring substructure was found on the kitchen floor beneath the textile rug.

Best Defect Picture Winners for June
House from a flipper had an odd bump in plastered walls, looks like they plastered over live knob and tube wiring? There were 3 discovered in this home.
Foundation is being kept from collapsing by a horizontal telepost and a 2 x 4 between the chimney and the foundation wall. Foundation is still moving which in turn crumbled the chimney. This was allowing water into the basement and the only ‘fresh’ air in the home was a hole they had cut into the furnace duct which circulated the musty air from the basement through the whole house. I know the smell alone would win me some kind of prize. But they had thrown a couple of air fresheners in the furnace to help with the smell. :twisted:
