Home Inspection Nightmares | Duct Tape Vent

Ask This Old House host Kevin O’Connor, general contractor Tom Silva, plumbing and heating expert Richard Trethewey, and landscape designer Jenn Nawada share some home inspection nightmares

1. Jenn shares a home that’s been overtaken by a euonymus plant.
2. Richard shows an oven vent that’s off by a few inches, so the gap is bridged over with an elaborate duct tape configuration.
3. Tom shares a roof that’s made up of at least 8 different types and styles of shingles.

Expert assistance with this segment was provided by the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI).
