After entering this basement on this inspection, it was determined that the light bulb/socket needed to be moved/covered for obvious reasons (also notice the knob and tube wiring).  Soon after I snapped this pic, I was down on my hands and knees looking at the water heater burner compartment. At...
The new St. Rt. 24 construction is progressing quickly with many big changes apparent already.  This new highway will bring a world of opportunity to many Northwest Ohio residences, including myself and my home inspection company.  The biggest opportunity will be having a more efficient & quicke...
