Even the downspouts matter!
Even the downspouts matter!

 While anyone can spot massive dry rot problems and the like, we pride ourselves on finding the smaller things as well.  In this case, the downspout doesn't direct water into the (obviously unused) splash pad.  Instead, it directs water right into a number of bricks that have gaps in the mortar, thus threatening the house's foundation and creating moisture issues.

Like so much of what we identify every day, this is an easy fix.  Simply cut off the bottom of the downspout and add the proper downspout angle, which is available at home improvement stores for around $2.98.  A small item, easy to repair, but hazardous to the house if left undone.
