If you have too many of these obvious deficiencies it may or may not be a reason to reconsider the house depending on your purpose for the property.
Once you have made a decision, you need a professional inspector to insure that all aspects of the home features are explored and any additional deficiencies are uncovered before you close the deal. We adhere to the InterNACHI Code of ethics and State of Virginia
