Topic: Home Inspections on Old Houses, Part 2
Speaker:  Reuben Saltzman, Structure Tech

We will be picking up where we left off from last meeting. This class will cover every single adverse condition that could ever be found in an old house. Ok, maybe not all of them, but a lot of them. The format will follow the ASHI SOP: what’s the condition, why does it matter, and what should be done about it?

  • Chimneys converted from wood to coal to gas, the importance of liners
  • Stucco-covered chimneys
  • Level 2 chimney inspections
  • Problems with old boilers
  • Old house doo-hickeys
  • Abandoned fuel oil tanks
  • Legal bedroom requirements
  • Drum traps
  • Floor drains
  • S-traps
  • Unvented drains

  • Cross connections: problems and solutions
  • Asbestos
