    Is that asbestos tape on the ducts?

    I lucked out on this one. The sellers had already agreed to replace the furnace and ducts so the buyer told me not to bother inspecting it.

    I would hate to be the one having to remove that from the basement. Although here in my city, if the house was left vacant for a few days the scrap metal thieves would make quick work of it.
