My neighbour is doing some major repairs to her home, replacing supporting beams etc.... I am trying to attach an image for an outside opinion. I just dont want the house falling down on ours. Any opinions are welcome
I dont see any obvious red flags. I would be surprised if there was a permit pulled and that it would pass inspection. But I dont see the structure falling down. As a neighbor I would be happy they are fixing the place up and hopefully it will look nice when done. Maybe offer to help clean up during the weekend I doubt they will except but it will be a nice hint to clean up thier yard..
Well after a major quake 6.7 at 8 pm yesterday. I guess it passes the test for sturdiness! Funny that was my main worry all along. It looks all butt ugly and it will be that way for a while until the whole place is fixed up.
appreciate the opinions
I an guessing, there was a deck across the back of the house and this is a good example of how not to attach a deck to a house. Good to here all is well after the quake. Might not have done so well before they did this work.
Yes there was a deck. Our deck is need of repair, but nothing compared to the neighbours. We live in a very very wet north west community, you have to be on top of it and have the best roof you can afford.
I am surprised more damage didnt happen, and trigger a landslide or flood as we are getting lots of spring run off. We are about 100km from the epicenter the quake. Never felt anything like it before.
So you catch a lot of rain up there? Every time I've been near there the sun was shinning but that was many times.
That house had an obvious mistake, Take a photo of your deck where it meets the house from above.
