What Goes Up

After several thousand home inspections, The House Whisperer is still amazed about what’s discovered; and just when you think you’ve
seen everything… the inspector spotted something embedded in the roof. It turned out to be a 9mm bullet.

Plumbing Pipe Problem

In a large household, it's conceivable to be flushing a toilet, taking a shower, running the dishwasher and using the washing machine all discharging water at the same time.A gallon of water weighs approximately 8.4 lbs... 10 gallons of water weighs 84 pounds.

Flexible Gas Pipe Concern

You’re looking at a flexible brass gas supply pipe going into the side of an older heating furnace.

Precarious Post and Pier

While under an old Pleasant Hill house, The House Whisperer inspector spotted this makes-me-nervous-looking-at-it support post sitting on loosely stacked bricks… obviously installed by a non-professional.

A Bust in Oakland

Many Oakland home inspections turn out to be entertaining. Founded in 1852, Oakland was recently declared as the most diverse city in terms of various ethnic populations. Around 150 languages are spoken in the Oakland metropolitan area with a population of approximately 400,000.

Aluminum Electrical Wire

Aluminum electrical wire was installed in houses from the late 1960s to the mid-1970s during a period of high copper prices.

Not the white cowboy boots… but rather the metal ‘transition boot’ between the round ducts in the crawlspace and/or attic to the rectangular wall or ceiling heat registers in rooms… that wrapped with asbestos

Attic Nightmare

Throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, people will awake from sleep, sit straight up in bed and listen intently… “What was that?” Then silence, but then the silence is broken again… a scurrying sound... gnawing... “there’s something in the attic”.
