Overall, our inspector was pleased with the quality of the home, but there were still things that needed to be addressed. Here are the excerpts from the report:
Having the roof checked out is worth it... lots of issues found!
Some pretty decent sized mice could get into that hole!!!
The siding workmanship had some issues.
Ummm... are you kidding me? They didn't do anything to clean up the ground before the turf went in. LAZY, POOR WORKMANSHIP here!!!
Of course Ryan Homes didn't remove the dead tree before they built the house so we are going to have to have it removed after we close. ANNOYING.
This is laughably poor worksmanship. Our inspector was pretty disappointed in this.
So yeah... We would have never known about this (well me anyways - I don't do crawlspaces!). Nice big open sewer line!
This was on our first report and has not been fixed yet.
Dear plumber... thanks for cutting a GIGANTIC hole in the floor for mice to come live in! And for not putting the insulation back!
Overall, it seems like a lot of stuff, but most of it is an easy fix. We plan on having the inspector come back before our 10 month or 1 year check in to make sure that everything has been addressed. That's probably excessive, but for the minimal amount of money it costs to have the inspection done, it will give us peace of mind.
We learned a lot about the house during this process and we felt like it was well worth the investment!!!
