All buyers should know what they are getting themselves into. Older homes have great charm and character. Way to often I see the shock in their eyes when they find out the costs of correcting shoddy repair work. I often hear " why didn't my home inspector catch this?" Way too often the inspector has no real back ground in construction but is in the business of inspecting according to a format . Recently, when looking at a long term (15 years) clients new purchase of a Capital Hill row house, I was amazed how little the home inspector noticed. The new gas fireplaces were unsafe. The structure for the roof was built with too much span and the beams are not set properly. The a/c line was not terminated to the outside, which leaked in to the ceiling when turned on. The roof was patched with dissimilar products which leaked. There was a section( 8x10) of the downstairs that was hidden behind a closet. It hid the old stair case and possible foundation problem.
