During a Raleigh Home Inspection, Gary Gentry of Quality Residential Inspections…your Raleigh Inspector…discovered some fireplace damage that was in need of being repaired. Also, it was noted that some birds had taken up residence inside the chimney. Take a look at the video that was shot on-site (you can readily hear the little peepers chirping away):
Our clients were glad we made the discoveries. Of course, the birds were just doing what birds do… and their nest was not going to be removed until the birds were finished using it. But it was recommended that a chimney cap be installed, once they were gone, to prevent the future entry of not only nesting birds, but also of other critters and rain and snow.
We also recommended that the masonry fireplace should be repaired…and the saved cost of that repair alone equaled more than all of the home inspection and ancillary services combined. Now that’s real savings to our client, the home-buyer.
