Don't you just hate dried out leaky bootsRian season is here again, is your roof ready?I spend enough time doing home inspections in the Bourbonnais and Kankakee Illinois area up on roofs to see just about everything that the buyers can't see. There seems to be a limited life cycle for the plumbing boots that protect the house interior from the rain and snow that pound the roof year 'round. They should remain flexible and tight around the plumbing stack pipe and if they are, there is not a single drop of water allowed into the attic and interior.There are no simple ways to remove these and replace, and the cost of the boot is minimal compared to the time and labor cost. I just don't understand why a roofer would install a brand new roof and not replace these dried out leaky boots. If yo...

Old post but really good reminder for any homeowner. I've said it before...Water always wins and it is not your friend inside your home. This sump pump discharge pipe jumped out at me the minute I saw it at my Bourbonnais Illinois Home inspection. Matted down grass. Moss growing on the wall. Large opening where the pipe exits the wall. It took every ounce of willpower to not run inside the house and look at the interior wall, joists and plywood. The house next door had an elbow directing the water down into the drain pipe away from the house. This house was a bit different. When the pump turned on, the water was moving with such force and volume that most splashed outside the drain pipe on the ground. Some was splashed back into the pipe opening into the wall cavity. And of course some...

Winter weather is coming fast. Bourbonnais, Illinois was 36 degrees last night.      There are a few things that are worse than a furnace acting up in the middle of the winter, but for the life of me I can't think of any right now. Your furnace or boiler needs an annual checkup. REPEATING   Your furnace or boiler needs an annual checkup. Don't wait.     If you put it off until November or December, you're asking for trouble. Waiting until the snow flies means you waited about 3 months too long. Now if you're depending on something like this old furnace to keep you warm through the winter, then you might want to invest in a space heater. Or rent a hotel room and also check your Carbon Monoxide detector, because this Ol Smokey is a death trap. Furnaces need regular annual tuneups for bett...
