Re: Mold within crawlspace being challenged

Who cares what the seller thinks/says - lol? Sellers say stuff all the time...there's a lot of emotion and $ at stake.

Re: Insulation in a vented crawl space

Who cares? Don't use it! If it's currently there, recommend getting rid of it, throwing it in the trash where it belongs, and properly insulating the rim joist and foundation walls accordingly with...

Re: Insulation in a vented crawl space

Regardless, fiberglass batt insulation in crawlspaces is junk and should be treated as such - throw it in the trash where it belongs. It will almost always be detrimental vs. beneficial.

Re: Walking a Roof

Roofs are always too scary, just like home inspectors. Why do something that you're not required to do? Agents will love you. Stay grounded, be safe, and make money the easy way.
