Thank you for the input… I can appreicate how its not going to go away with time however I’m wondering will it get any worse with time? Is it possible to leave it and not see further adverse affects? Oddly enough this home had just been inspected three months prior and the previous inspector didn’t notice it. To be honest it was barely noticable especially since the sun was behind it but when I pointed it out the owner could see it as well (which made me a bit happy because for a minute I honestly thought I was seeing things).
One of the things he mentioned that the previous inspector pointed out and I didn’t was putting covers over the window wells. I notice there weren’t any trees on the property and the landscaping had been completed. Don’t think we’ll see a lot of leaves and debris getting into them… do you all recommend this as well? I’ve never heard of anyone recommending this.
Also he was advised to put a battery back up on the sump??? I was a bit confused by this as well as the sump rarely operates even in wet conditions. How long did the last inspector really expect the power to be out? Is this something you guys would recommend?
Obviously neither of these are deficiencies but they were recommendations. The owner kinda expected to hear them from me since the last inspector had made these recommendations. Thoughts?
