The house addition looks just fine.

The other side looks just as good.  No problems with the roof or with earth-to-wood contact.  The termite inspection should go well with no concerns.  Right?

The room addition at this house looks good too.  Think of all that valuable extra square footage.

Blight In Blythe

Dilapidated house/shack in Blythe, California.  The foam roof is shot.  That’s why you see orange instead of white.  The house isn’t much better.

The siding is in bad shape.  Odd that they used wood planks.  Blythe is located near the California/Arizona border and is hot, hot, hot in the summer.  The sun bakes the wood.

Ask your home inspector to check the foundation.  If it has one, that is.
