Highlights of some of the more obvious issues found during inspections.


At first glance I thought there was a fire.

Inspection in Freehold

Stairway to the hospital

These stairs are severely deteriorated and unsafe. The railings are loose and cannot support any weight if necessary. 

Inspection in Neptune

Vegetation growing on the inside

The in the rear of the first floor of this house vines worked their way through several openings in the foundation and back door over the years.

Inspection in Belmar

Limestone deteriorated

Be careful of what products are used to melt ice in winter.

Inspection in Bayville

Romex wire on the outside

There is romex wiring that can be used outside, this is not it. I actually purchased this house and there were multiple electrical issues. 

Inspection in East Brunswick

Leaking plumbing valves

Leaking plumbing valves in ceiling hidden by sheetrock. Also dripping on furnace exhaust vent (see picture below).

Grab interest

Rust hole in furnace exhaust vent due to leaking shutoff valves above (see above picture).

Inspection in Point Pleasant

Formica counter top

Damaged and delaminating due to contacting with excessive standing water.

Inspection in Spring Lake 

Water heater

There is a saying," a home inspector never met a water heater that he liked." Well no one should like this one.

Inspection in Manalapan

Plastic utility sink

A nice feature in any basement, however it should not drain into the sump pump pit.

Inspection in Jackson

A very Brady railing.

Popular in the 70's & 80's, this style decorative railing is far from safe due to its low height and the spacing between rungs.

Inspection in Marlboro

Sink Hole

Although not part of a standard home inspection we performed on the residence, while the bulkhead was being inspected by a bulkhead contractor, it failed  under the inspector's feet.

Inspection in Brick

Siding Repair

Homeowner removed deck and had a friend that had left over siding.
