Snapshots From The Field

Our inspectors are always sharing interesting things from the field so that we can all learn from each others’ homeowner wins and mistakes. Here’s one of the latest.

It’s pretty easy to spot what’s off about this picture. That wood definitely looks out of place! But why is it there in the first place?

It turns out that what started as a broken sink turned into an even bigger issue when a homeowner placed heavy dishes in it. The weight of the dishes started causing the sink to collapse. To make matters worse, the sink is installed in a granite countertop, which will likely lead to cracking and early replacement. This very DIY repair is not a lasting solution to the issue, and could cause even more damage in the long-run. With any sink problem, you’ll want to avoid using it or storing any dishes there, and you’ll need to seek a professional’s opinion as soon as possible.
