Log Home Inspections

A log home is a dream and goal that many share, who doesn't want to build the home of their dreams, in the woods, on the water, in the mountains...

That dream can quickly turn into a nightmare without the proper upkeep and care that is unique to owning a log home.

  • Rotten wood

  • Overall condition of the logs and butt ends

  • The R-Value of the wood

  • Minimizing air leakage in log homes

Home Inspections

 

At Get It Inspectedwe believe you need to get an inspection on every home you intend to buy to protect yourself and your investment.

A Mobile or Manufactured home is not excluded from this. They may be constructed differently than a site-built home and come with their own unique issues that a typical homeowner wouldn’t know, but not any less important or costly to repair.

 

In some manufactured homes, the floors may hang out beyond the width of the home’s I-beams. If steel outriggers aren’t attached to the I-beams to support the weight of the extended floors, then the walls may separate from the roof. This separation is called crowning, and it is not easy to repair. You would not want to buy a home with this issue.

In this instance with a Get It Inspected Mobile (Manufactured) Home Inspection our Inspector would see that the belly wrap was ripped and the insulation was loose. Belly wraps are vital to a healthy manufactured home.

An inspector may also find issues under the home such as Pier Failure. If a pier has fallen, this is not healthy for a manufactured home, and must be fixed as soon as possible.

A competent, licensed inspector for mobile (manufactured) homes understand the unique issues of factory-built homes, this knowledge allows them to identify any current and future issues that may be unsafe, lower the value of the home, or be too expensive to repair.

The Top Ten most important things in a Mobile (Manufactured) Home Inspection are:

  • Proper marriage line alignment

  • Overextended Jack heads

  • Wood pads with cracks

  • Squeaking floors, warped or bowing floors that could mean water damage

  • Toilets with bad wax rings, loose flanges, or a wobble

  • A moisture barrier, belly wrap is present and healthy with no tears

  • Damage around water heaters and furnaces

  • Pier Spacing

  • Healthy outrigger with no visible sagging

  • Sagging ceiling panels (caused by broken 1″x2″ or 2″x2″ rafters)
