Downspout extension. Right idea, wrong placement! Notice where the extension terminates and water drains out. Cracks formed, and the staircase stated to separate. They tried repatching the steps, but the extension is still dumping water to the same location. How long before the stairs start settling again and the cracks grow wider due to the same water being drained over time? #gutter #downspouts #exterior #waterdrainage #water #crack #watershed #homeinspection #homeinspector #prohabhi #bronx #realestate #homebuyer #homeseller #homesearch

Junction boxes should always be covered, more insulation couldn't hurt, and loose wiring is never a good thing. #attic #electrical #insulation #wiring #junctionbox #bronx #riverdale #kingsbridge #countryclub #pelhamparkway #prohabhi #southbronx #grandconcourse #motthaven #homeinspection

When copper and steel pipes are connected, an electrolytic reaction begins. A small amount of electric current starts flowing and atoms from one metal begin to break off and cling to the other metal. The result is called galvanic corrosion. When 2 dissimilar metals are joined together, a dielectric union needs to adjoin the two in order to prevent galvanic corrosion which will lead to future leaks. #plumbing #corrosion #leaks #dielectricunion #phi #bronx #riverdale #bainbridge #prohabhi #highbridge #woodlawn #tremont #wakefield #kingsbridge #countryclub #eastchester #pelhamparkway #melrose #cityisland #bronxstrong #fordham #southbronx #grandconcourse #universityheights #motthaven #homeinspection

Bronx homes built before 1961 may have lead service lines. Internal fixtures and plumbing installed before 1987 may contain lead solder. Lead primarily enters drinking water because of corrosion of lead containing pipes that connect to the city's water mains. #plumbing #lead #dep #phi #bronx #riverdale #bainbridge #highbridge #woodlawn #tremont #wakefield #kingsbridge #countryclub #eastchester #pelhamparkway #melrose #cityisland #bronxstrong #fordham #southbronx #grandconcourse #universityheights #motthaven #homeinspection #prohabhomeinspections #prohabhi

Lack of a downspout is water damage waiting to happeb. The amount of water hitting the driveway from this height can damage the concrete and/or penetrate into the basement. #downspouts #gutters #drainage #rain #phi #bronx #riverdale #bainbridge #highbridge #woodlawn #tremont #wakefield #kingsbridge #countryclub #eastchester #pelhamparkway #melrose #cityisland #bronxstrong #fordham #southbronx #grandconcourse #universityheights #motthaven #homeinspection #prohabhomeinspections
