Patches... even our old friend Clarence Carter would have to agree that there is a right way and a wrong way to patch a roof. My Inspection in Rio Rancho the other day led me to an Investors finding and purchase of a distressed home. The usual things were apparent when I arrived, like overgrown l...

We all know the classic song from Led Zeppelin... that's what came to mind for me when I saw this picture. What the... Yep, the Stairway To Nowhere! Now, it took months of planning, Architects galore, Contractors were scratching their heads, Sub -Contractors going, "what's the problem?" to get th...
A little over a week ago I done an inspection in Rio Rancho, New Mexico. This particular house was built in 1990. The house was vacant (I love that) and everything was accessible! There was a closet on the backside of the hallway bathroom that had an access door to the bathroom plumbing. I opened...
I had an inspection the other day in Sandia Heights. It is a beautiful exclusive area with the most awesome views in the area! It overlooks the whole city and surrounding areas and is breathtaking. It's hard to fathom how far you can actually see! Most of the homes are older, built in the 70's or...
Well I'll be! I have seen pictures of stuff like this, never thought I'd see it though. A couple days ago I inspected a house right at the base of the Sandia Mountains. When I was on the roof, I got a great view looking either way! Anyway, back on task Mr Inspector... This house was built in the ...
I did an inspection the other day on an existing home built in 1990. It was a nice home in a quiet subdivision in Rio Rancho. The home was vacant, I like to inspect vacant homes because there is usually no "stuff" as I like to call it hiding things. There were some problems, but I would like to t...
This is not my picture, I saw it on facebook and thought it was cool. I'm sure a lot of you saw it there. After studying it closely I wondered if I could handle living there! I mean, the view is spectacular, but I'm not sure I would be comfortable in that bottom bedroom hanging over that cliff! I...
I had an inspection the other day in Rio Ranco. Rio Rancho is part of the Albuquerque metropolitan area. It is also the third largest city in the state and one of the fastest expanding areas. This house was built in 1990, which means it is 25 years old. That is not a bad thing, I think I would ra...
Over this past week I have shared one of my inspections on a newly constructed home. The house is four months old. The previous blogs that associate with this blog are here: Dream home from Hell, and, Can you play a tune on that thing? This builder is irresponsible, they have made some repairs to...
