A horizontal run of a cast iron sewer pipe that has cracked from years of corrosive sewer gas exposure.

Brown Recluse Infestation
Here are a few that were in a bathtub in a house I was inspecting. This place was loaded with them. I stopped counting around 200 live ones.

This 15 yr old house never had the master shower connected. It's been draining into the crawlspace this whole time.

Have you ever seen wood with veins? The mold growing under this house was terrible.
Rotten structure from ledger flashing
Here is a rotten rim joist and floor joist of a house. This happens because the flashing on the deck outside this wall was omitted. This home was 4 years old. The deck was installed by the builder.
PB Plumbing Pipe
Leaking PB pipe. This stuff has flooded lots of homes.
Mold in the house
Mold in a closet from a bad roof leak. I had to wear my respirator in this house.
Some are worse than others, but this crawlspace was in the top 3 of all time.
Mold In Crawlspace
Sometimes the mold is so bad in the crawlspace I can write my initials in it.
