Mountain-Biking Home Inspector in Poway, CA Tackles Iron Mtn.

In between home inspections, one of the favorite things I enjoy is mountain biking. I recently had the opportunity to, once again, get the bike wheels rolling after a home inspection in Poway. I have driven by Iron Mtn. in Poway, CA countless times in my home inspection travels, and the place is always busy with hikers and bikers enjoying the great outdoors, but I had never stopped to see what all the interest was about.

Potential home inspection clients ask me, "Do you cover this? Do you cover that?". There is much confusion as to what is and is not covered in a home inspection. Since there are "Top 10" lists for just about everything else, I've made a list of the top 10 things not covered in a home inspection:

FREE RecallChek with Home Inspections in San Diego County

FREE RecallChek with Home Inspections in San Diego County

 

First Choice Inspections has added to every standard home inspection a RecallChek report, free of charge, to all clients. RecallChek is a reporting system that alerts homeowners of appliances that have been recalled due to fire or safety issues, and has resulted in thousands of free repairs from the manufacturer nationwide.

“The best thing about RecallChek is that we are able to provide a solution for the buyer, rather than bringing up an objection. We find about one recalled appliance for every ten home inspections in San Diego. Other home inspection companies aren’t even checking for recalled appliances. With RecallChek we can 100% guarantee that if you have one, we will find it!” Steve Stenros, President of First Choice Inspections explained.

San Diego Home Inspector Roof Inspection

San Diego Home Inspector Roof Inspection

I just finished conducting a home inspection for a client in Poway, CA near San Diego. I feel very blessed to be a San Diego home inspector where I never have to deal with snow or ice-covered roofs during a home inspection. I walk the roofs on 95% of the homes I inspect. The only time I will not go on a roof is when it is unsafe to do so, or if there are lightweight clay tiles installed (easily breakable). In that case, a limited roof inspection is done from the ground with binoculars, and/or from the roof eaves with a ladder. A qualified licensed roofing contractor should then be consulted for a full evaluation. An experienced home inspector knows how to safely navigate a roof, and can do so without damaging the roof material in most cases.
