MIssed defect, no help afterwards

Home inspection completed January 2021, everythinng seemed fine. Was told I was buying a solid house with some minor stuff you'd find in any home that was 70 years old. Was pointed to some siding issues but no urgency was noted. Got the report and again, in the report, the siding issue was observed but no action or details of what that issue was in it.

Turns out when I took possession of the house, this "minor" siding issue is actually a $20,000 repair job just to repair the parts of the house with the issue. If the issue is widespread to all siding, it is more like a $50,000 replacement job. There's a five foot crack in one wall and another wall looks like it is peeling away from the house.

You'd think after missing this major repair, I'd get some kind of help paying for the repair considering I used their report to make an offer on a house requiring a 5 digit home repair. After confirming the defect with a third party and being told their insurance will help with paying for the repair, it has been 6 months of radio silence. I would lawyer up but the time, effort, and cost of litigation with no guarantee of success is not a risk I can take after having to take this massive loss.

I do not reccommend. There are more trustworthy companies out there, I am sure of it.
