Chicago Home Inspector Blog

I am an experienced home inspector however this site is new. Will try and post as often as time allows including pictures to keep it interesting so "Here we go".

Just finished a report on a south side condo in the Hyde Park area and I guess this is my form of relaxing , so go figure. I have been to this same building 3 times already.

Here are a few pictures of the roof.

                                    

Parapet wall issue

This is a section of parapet wall with
open material.
It will allow water to enter below the roof.

This plumbing vent lead flashing
has been left blocking

around the inside
and will cause problems in drains below
