Kentucky Home Inspection Info‎ > ‎ Kentucky Septic System Inspection? Is it really necessary? I don't inspect septic systems. Don't want to. Don't have a pumper truck.  Won't. If I'm doing a Kentucky Home Inspection at a home where there is supposed to be a septic system the client get's the below verbally and in the report. =======================The house is reported to have a septic system. I don't know. Septic systems are excluded from the visual home inspection as the tank and drain field are buried and I don't possess the necessary equipment (pump truck) to properly empty the tank and inspect it. I recommend that you have the septic system fully inspected by a qualified septic system technician, to include emptying the tank. For more information on septic systems on the internet ...

Are Your Coils Clean?? Can your heating and cooling breath like it's supposed too?  It will if you change your filters regularly.  Do YOU? When I'm doing a Frankfort, Kentucky Home Inspection, I can't always get to the coils to see them, but I can almost always get my camera into the blower fan compartment to see what conditions are inside the unit.  The blades should be fairly clean.  When I can see the coils they should also look clean, kind of like the fins on your car's radiator. Obviously, someone wasn't changing their filters on this unit. This system isn't breathing very well.  Though a little heat leaked through. Dirty blower fan Coils mostly blocked with crud. The blower fan blades are covered with crud, reducing the energy efficiency.  The coil is mostly blocked with crud, mud...

  Got chimney.  Where's your saddle? You wonder about chimney guys and roofers?  Whose responsible for ensuring there's a saddle (aka cricket) behind wide chimnmeys to force the water running down the roof to go around the chimney instead of overrunning the chimney flashing and leaking into the house.     I can kind of understand it on old houses where they may not have "done it that way".   But the new technology and ideas for preventing roof leaks call for saddles behind wide chimneys. Here's an example: Does your wide chimney have a chimney saddle (aka chimney cricket) behind it? If it doesn't, you might want to think about getting a roofer to install one to prevent future water damage.   -

Matthew and Nancy Sleeth  - Don't miss this opportunity to learn and fellowship with Lexington's Leading Advocates of Caring for our planet. Matthew and Nancy Sleeth will be sharing at the First Christian Church Frankfort  Kentucky on February 8th at 6:15 PM. Matthew will be speaking on "Serving God, Saving the Planet."  Nancy will be there to help answer questions and she will also do book signings.   Matthew and Nancy Sleeth really do live their lives as they so passionately advocate.  In fact I remember seeing their electric bill for the month of May when they lived in a large home in Wilmore.  The electrical usage was absurdly low.  If my memory serves me correctly I think it was eleven dollars for the whole month of May.  Yes, it does get hot during May and yes they did have an air...

Do you have a Kentucky Home Maintenance Schedule? You should, to maintain the value and comfort of your home. Remember to conduct monthly and annual preventive maintenance checks to extend the longevity of the structure and the installed systems and components. UPON TAKING POSSESSION: After taking possession of a new home, there are some maintenance and safety issues that should be addressed immediately. The following checklist should help you undertake these improvements: Change the locks on all exterior entrances, for improved security. Check that all windows and doors are secure. Improve window hardware as necessary. Security rods can be added to sliding windows and doors. Consideration could also be given to a security system. Install smoke detectors on each level of the home. Ensu...

What's wrong in this Frankfort, KY Home Inspections Picture? This series of blog posts focuses on educating my clients, Active Rain & Localism readers along with my Facebook friends (see the Facebook Business Page Badge at the bottom of the post. ALL Facebook likes are appreciated. ) The picture below was taken during one of my recent Frankfort, Kentucky home inspections.  It's a picture of the door leading to a walk in attic area. Well, it's so cold because it's just an interior door, uninsulated, unsealed, that leads to the cold attic area.  Why would a builder put an interior door leading to an exterior temperature area?  Because it's quite a bit cheaper and no one said anything about it.  Well, until I came along to point out the incongruity and loss of energy ($$$$$$$$) that it cau...

Sometimes you just gotta wonder what they were thinking! This finely installed plumbing vent boot flashing was found during a Lexington, KY Home Inspection a couple of days ago.       .                                   Someone didn't look at the instructions that say "This Side UP!"   Ten feet away was another one (of the same apparent age), installed right!   I guess the second time was the charm as they got it right.  I wonder why they didn't take the time to come back and do this one right.   The plastic and rubber boot flashings are commonly dry rotted at the top after about six or seven years.  Have you checked yours lately.  Most people don't notice until a mold spot starts growing on the ceiling. Don't know what you're doing?  Can't read instructions?  Hire a Lexington, KY profe...

Frankfort KY - Elkhorn Creek -  Gene Burch This picture was taken by Gene Burch, Kentucky Author and Photographer. I met Gene Burch one evening beside the creek as he was visiting friends next to a home I have listed on #7 Justice Lane in Frankfort KY. The home has this creek in the backyard. Imagine waking up to  the sound of Elkhorn Creek each morning. It's a one of a kind property. As I was leaving, he presented me with a beautiful coffee table book, A Photographic Journey, full of his beautiful photography. You never know who you will meet while you are out and about going through your daily life.  People you are supposed to meet for some reason. It was very kind of Gene Burch to let me showcase some of his beautiful Kentucky pictures that include Frankfort KY and Elkhorn Creek. I h...
