The interior of a house – the walls, the floors and the ceiling – hides the plumbing, the electrical wiring, the insulation, the structural skeleton, and many potential problems and deficiencies that you have no way of seeing. Yet, the interior has a lot to say – if you know how to listen. The amount of “shifting” the house has done since being built can often be seen. Water leaks occurring behind the walls are usually exposed. Faulty wiring (aka – tampering by a non-professional/previous homeowner) can often be detected. The quality in the materials used – the good, the bad, and the ugly is often a good indication of the quality used behind the walls in materials as well as in workmanship. (Actually, “ugly” is in the eye of the beholder – and is generally not an indication of quality – or lack of quality) Take a look at the posts below.
