I found this during a home inspection in Omaha, NE a couple months ago.  Kind of defeats the purpose?!?!

I had the pleasure of finding this review from our client on Christmas Eve;-)  This was from a home inspection we did in Omaha, NE back in July 2014.  Thanks for the Christmas present Jason!   “Greg is the real deal. If you want to know about the problems your potential home has and will have, h...

I've had the pleasure of performing at least 5 inspections in the last 6 months for homebuyers after the home had already been inspected by another home inspector.  Why is it that on all 5 inspections I was the first to clear out the cobwebs and make footsteps in the loose blown insulation???  Al...

On March 23, 2011 around 5:00 p.m., our house was pummelled by a hail storm in Blair, Nebraska for a solid 15 minutes with mostly golf ball-sized hail or larger.  The temperature dropped from 70 degrees to 50.  As the hail was falling, it immediately filled the gutters and water/hail ran straight...

This tract built home in Omaha, Nebraska located near 150th & Maple was built in 2000.  I performed the home inspection for the Buyer, who will be the 3rd family to purchase the home.  The original owner and current owner apparently never had home inspections and never went in their attic.  The B...

This was a beautiful 3,000+ s.f. home located in Elkhorn, Nebraska.  Inspecting the plumbing didn't take long being all of the accessible copper supply lines had been stolen.  At least when the thiefs ripped the piping out, they didn't damage the ends and left plenty of line leading over the fini...

Look closely through this exterior wall and you'll see carpet.  While performing this home inspection in Papillion Nebraska, I was checking out the attic area over the garage and to my surprise I could see straight through the exterior wall into the Master Bedroom to the carpeting!  This was a ho...

The home I inspected a week ago in Ceresco, Nebraska had a unique approach to installing a wood stove in the basement.  Obviously, the Buyer won't be able to use their main floor fireplace.  Retrofits like this make me cautious.  It might be safe, but I referred a Certified Chimney Sweep to look ...

When you walked into this Bennington, Nebraska home, the entire back half of the home noticeably sloped downhill.  I put a 4' level on the floors and they sunk 1" to 1 1/4" throughout.  The front half of the home was level.  Exactly where the beam ran from gable end to gable end right down the mi...
