DEAR BARRY: When I bought my home, two years ago, I hired a home inspector to find all the defects. Now that I’m selling the property, the buyers hired their own inspector, and the new report contains information not disclosed by my inspector. According to the new report, the fireplace chimney is touching the wood framing in the attic, and a photo in the new report shows this. The new inspector says this is a fire hazard. Before investing in costly repairs, I want to be sure the new report, rather than the old one, is correct. What can you tell me about metal chimneys in attics? — Woody DEAR WOODY: Disparities among home inspection reports are to be expected, due to differing levels of experience among inspectors.
