6. Poorly engineered roof structure that is starting to show ceiling pops.

7. Windows that aren’t foggy but still have lost their seal and will show when the weather changes.

8. Moisture stains on ceilings that have been painted but show stains still above in the attic.

9. Grading that looks okay but has caused moisture in crawlspaces.

10. Windows in bedrooms throughout the house that have been altered to prevent opening more than 4 inches and will need to be replaced to resolve.
