Home Inspection Defect Pictures –  Defects from Home Inspections

Home Inspection Defect Pictures from actual home inspections.  See the wide variety and unique deficiencies that can be found in many of the homes I inspect.   Some defects are so odd they may make you laugh, but they actually did exist in a home at one time.  Hopefully as all these were identified at the time of the inspection, that they have all been fixed.  Any major deficiencies are also explained to the Listing Realtor to ensure the Home Owner is aware of issues especially if Life Safety is a factor.

Many defects are just from lack of maintenance and are common on most homes.  There are some defects that just make you shake your head in amazement that some one has not been injured.  Everyone knows electricity is dangerous but it is the most common deficiency that I find in basements.   Home owners want to save money so they either do the work themselves or hire someone who is incompetent.  The end result can be improperly installed electrical circuits and possibly dangerous wiring installations.
