We are very experienced and familiar with inspecting income properties in and around Cleveland and Akron, Ohio. Including Shaker Heights, Cleveland Heights, Ohio City, Tremont, Old Brooklyn, and Lakewood.
In these areas, many of the single and multi family homes were built between 1890 and WWII. These homes typically have clay tile block foundations, no sub flooring, 40-50 year old furnaces or boilers.
Many of these homes may have:
- No insulation
- Peeling lead based paint
- Dilapidated garages
- 2-3 layers of roofing
- Asphalt shingles over slate roofing
- Knob and tube wiring
- Federal Pacific electrical panels
- Asbestos siding
- Wood destroying insect past or current presence
- Damp basements
- Foundation damage
- Structural damage
- Mold growth
- Galvanized steel supply piping
- Lead or galvanized steel main supply line
- Main sanitary lines that may be damaged and more.
Inner ring suburbs such as South Euclid, Lyndhurst, Mayfield, Euclid, Garfield Hts, Maple Hts, Warrensville Hts, University Hts, Richmond Hts, and Bedford Hts were mostly built out during WWII up to the 1960’s.
In many cases these homes have:
- concrete block foundation walls (which are susceptible to adhesion cracking foundation damage)
- plank sub flooring
- 1-3″ attic insulation
- knob and tube wiring although more of these homes have just un-grounded non-knob and tube wiring
- Federal Pacific panels
- Copper supply piping
- Potentially breached main sanitary lines
- Damaged brick siding
- Un-grounded appliance outlets
- damp basements
- mold growth and more etc.
