Home inspections sometimes yield significant findings (like dire structural problems or water intrusion issues), and sometimes it’s all about the small details. My job is to point out what I see, big or small.
During a recent home inspection in Whatcom County, I came across something in the “small” ledger: a transition trim strip within the kitchen that was loose. While these details seem insignificant in the grand scheme of things, competent home inspectors should catch these issues.
Ultimately, it’s up to my clients to determine what to do with that information (e.g., ask buyers for repairs, etc.), but it’s up to me to point them out.
If you have questions or comments about interior trim or home inspections in general, tweet me (@AIHomeInspect).
