water staining on a basement wall

Water Staining

When it comes to home inspections, the expertise of a certified professional is invaluable. Ashi-Certified Inspector Rob DeRosa recently encountered a scenario that highlights the thoroughness and attention to detail that sets LunsPro Home Inspections apart.

During a routine inspection in a basement, Rob discovered water staining on the foundation's left front corner wall and the floor decking. Recognizing the importance of addressing potential issues early, he delved into the investigation.

Rob observed that the ground level outside corresponded with the stained area on the wall, prompting him to suspect an external source. Taking the inspection outside, he meticulously examined the spot in the basement and made a fascinating discovery.

Upon closer inspection, Rob identified that the 3rd-floor HVAC unit extended inadequately, allowing water to cascade onto the foundation wall. This continuous exposure had not only eroded the paint but also resulted in water seeping into the basement. The consequences were clear - potential costly repairs.

This revelation underscores the significance of a comprehensive home inspection. Rob's keen eye and methodical approach not only identified the visible symptoms but traced them back to the root cause.
