Hardin County Inspections- Hey- you can’t do that….

On my last Hardin County home inspection we found a serious issue. It was an older home that had some home owner additions and this one was an electrical wire from the home to the garage. Besides the main issue that this is not right- there were also exposed wires within a few inches of the door. Most issues Hardin County home inspectors find are not real dangerous but this one could have really hurt the new buyers or even the sellers.

We just had Tim Mattingly do our inspection today and I’d highly recommend him to anyone needing a home inspection.

Hardin County Home Inspection Finds- Vent Pipe

No vent pipe for plumbing drain

On a recent Hardin County Home inspection we discovered several issues with the plumbing.  The house was about 50 years old and the previous homeowner have done a little work around the house.  Most home owners just do not know the rules to adding plumbing, electrical or other components to the home.  Home owners just do not get enough experience doing these and it is best left to the professionals.  This is one find the was not a huge deal for this buyer- but was a little funny.

The owner of this Hardin County home wanted to add a sink to the basement.  Sound simple enough- but the hang up is usually a drain and vent line.  All plumbing fixtures need an air vent to help them work.  This owner had a clean out to the plumbing drain handy so he simple added a sink directly to the drain.  There is not vent present and the attachment to the drain line was leaking.  Again no vent is a big deal- but the buyer was going to have some work done here anyway so it was not a big deal.

Remember if buying a home in Hardin County, Elizabethtown Ky, Vine Grove Ky or Louisville Ky give me a call, remember to Know Before You Buy, or it may be too late……
