Home inspectors with less experience may not notice these things. Last week I inspected a home in El Paso where there were multiple issues with a new home. Call us for an inspection on your new El Paso home!
A smoke detector was closer than three feet from a return or supply air register.
A wall (below) was not fully supported by the foundation.
Foundation bolts (below) should be in the middle of the wall holding it in place.
Today in Horizon City our home inspector discovered an unsafe electrical panel find. During an earlier new home inspection in Horizon City, our inspector discovered missing AFCI (Arc-Fault Circuit Interrupter) protected receptacles in the dining room. A follow-up visit 2 1/2 weeks later all AFCI breakers were missing from the same new Horizon home. AFCI breakers are designed to help protect your home from fires. If arcs are present in a circuit, they should pop and remove the power to that circuit. These are the breakers with a “TEST” button. These breakers are in high demand and in some cases are being removed from the panels. Our home inspector at FYI Property Inspection did his job today! What will we find at your home inspection? Let us be your home inspector.
