Lane Home Inspections and Services, LLC performed a pre-sale home inspection, which lasted approximately four hours. The inspection identified only minor issues such as caulking around the window, gutter needing re-mounting, etc. After move-in however, several major problems were discovered by the homeowner that were not picked up by the home inspection. For months we kept smelling mildew in the hall bath, so we decided to pull up the toilet. As suspected, the closet flange had been leaking for what appears to be a very long time. The water damage appears to have also affected the floor joist. When we pulled away the insulation in the crawl space, you could see extensive damage to the sub-flooring and joist. Additionally, the area was infested with insects. The closet flange had been installed almost one and a half inches below the finished floor. We couldn?t figure out why the air conditioner was not removing the humidity upstairs. The previous owners had installed some make-shift insulation around the evaporator and fan unit in the attic. When this insulation was pulled away, the entire unit was covered in mold and mildew. Additionally, the wood inlet plenum box upon which the unit is mounted is water damaged from what appears to be a clogged condensate drain line. The vapor barrier in the crawl space did not extend all the way to the walls, which caused increased humidity levels in the home. Additionally, the crawl space vents were jammed shut and could not be opened. The insulation on the compressor return line that runs in the crawl space has been soaking up water for what appears to be a long time. Consequently, the saturated insulation has been dripping for a while, causing a large pool of water in the crawl space to collect. One of the exterior flood lights had a broken mount (screw had been totally sheared off) causing the flood light to dangle. The wooden threshold on the work shop exterior door was discovered to be soft and consequently this door will likely have to be replaced. Four windows had broken pane seals that resulted in window clouding. Although Greg Lane was extremely professional, his inspection was not thorough and complete. Each of these issues could have been identified during the inspection, but were overlooked. Consequently, we ended up spending several thousand dollars in repairs.
