On October 9,2009 AmeriSpec inspected the home I was in the proccess of buying. The inspector walked on the vent pipes in the attic to which he told my husband was the proper way to walk in attic in order to inspect it. I was told by our Realtor at our settlement on October 30,2009 that the inspector broke a pipe in the attic and it was repaired by the inspector prior to settlement. On January 26th, 2014 we noticed a wet stain in the ceiling in the same location as the pipe that was repaired by the inspector. We called a plumbing company that same day to have them come out and take a look. We were told by the plumber that they pipe was never replaced and was just temporarily fixed by putting epoxy putty over the cracked pipe. The plumber fixed the pipe by taking out the completely cracked pipe and replaced it with a new one which cost me $141.50.
I called AmeriSpec on January 27, 2014 to tell them what took place and I was told that the owner of the company would call me back. [continued below]....
We came to the conclusion this was just a quick fix to make enough time lapse so they could claim they have no liability. What they are failing to realize is they never fixed it correctly from the beginning and if they fixed it correctly it would have not leaked again even though this much time has lapsed.
