Things You Shouldn't Find In A Home Inspection #2

Number 2 would be a crawl space so wet that Bullfrogs feel welcome......

Frog

This is just one of those areas you need to check every now and then to make sure it stays dry!

This is one item I've never had show up on a home inspection before.....I can only imagine how long this amphibious friend has been underneath this house.  Be sure to regularly check your crawlspace thoroughly and if you have this problem, get it corrected immediately.

That amphibian would be making a lot of noise, and he would at least alert you to the problem.

It appears this crawl space was home to a "hopping" tenant. This post should remind home owners to know their home a bit more, especially if it is on the market for sale. Good series on value of a home inspection.

Luckily we do not have crawl spaces in Florida. We do have lots of critters who like to be aquatters though. Enjoy the day!

He doesn't look very happy to being photographed either - most of our homes are built on slab down here, so we don't have many crawlspaces.

How did he get away with the noise ordinance. Aren't bullfrogs noisy critters-we have one in our pond once in while and we always know when he's there.

Did someone rescue the guy or is he there for all eternity?  I live next to a "wetland" and it is spring peeper time.  Noisy little frogs but fun to fall asleep to the sounds.

Howdy and evening to you Rob

Rob,
folks sure don't want to water in their home's crawl space. There was so much moistuer coming up from this Crawl Space into the building, my Moist Meter went off the scale. You can see what it has done to the sub flooring.



Have a good one
