Sometimes you only see a symptom of a problem but need to remove the building materials to find out what the problem is. This is a foundation wall to a daylight basement and the symptom is just a smell and discoloratin on a baseboard. We approached the project like we were going to find an issue in the wall cavity, which is always smart to do because of what can come out of the cavity when you open it. So we found moldy furring strips and allot of mold on the back of the drywall. Initially we only saw a small amount of moisture on the unpainted block wall, but after it rained you could really see the water intrusion. It is always a good idea to leave the wall open to see how the water is flowing into the building so you can address the issue before rebuilding. Here the symptom was small but it lead to the discovery of a chronic growing problem.

When I get out of my car to assess a home, I first look at the roof. The roof is the achilles heal of the home. Most inspectors don't understand the importance of the roof; that the comfort of a home depends of the moisture getting out. All of the moisture that accumuluates inside the home every day must get out through the ridge vent (or what ever exhaust system they have). When you look at a roof to assess the ventilation system, there is intake and exhaust. Anything that interferes with the intake will not allow for the exhaust to occur (dormers, less than 100% soffit perforation, no baffles, roof designs that eliminate the soffit areas). Also, keep in mind a few things, a gable vent will short circuit the draw from the soffit toward the ridge vent; when you see a few pot vents on the roof instead of a ridge vent, look at the square footage of the attic floor space and calculate the number of pots that are needed (you almost never see the correct number); not all ridge vents are the same, so just because you see the vent and the cut is correct, it still does not mean there is proper ventilation (i.e. low profile vs high profile; the sponge seal for a steel roof); sometimes the roof design will not allow for a passive system and you have to recommend a power ventilation fan. Attic ventilation design systems is a science in itself, let me encourage you to be a student.

I was asked by an insurance company to look at a water damage claim in a residential home. They wanted to get an idea of whether the mold in the crawl space was a result of the recent water release. Normally this is a hard thing to do, but in this instance it was not. This is a crawl space below a kitchen, which was the location of the water release. There is no vapor barrier on the ground in the crawl space, you can see daylight through the foundation wall, no insulation on the foundation, and you can feel a strong wind in the basement coming from the crawl space. You can also see the roof downspouts discharging right next to the foundation and some of the water is flowing into the crawl space. The water saturation on the wood and the extensive mold growth on the timbers required more than a week to occur. This wood is Oak, which is more mold resistant than pine. If someone asks you to determine when mold starting growing, be very careful; it is a very, very difficult question to answer. Most of the time I say "I dont know", because normally the site conditions dont give you a good enough time line.

When you do an inspection in a home. Always, always look up above the suspended ceiling; especially in the basement. I hate to bring up an obvious thing to do, but this was missed by an inspector and has caused a real issue.
