2.4.1 - Roof Drainage System

Blockage- QC
West and East Dining Room

Some downspouts designed to discharge roof drainage appeared to be clogged with debris. This condition can cause excessively high moisture levels in soil next to the foundation that can effect the ability of the soil to support the weight of the structure above and/or can cause damage related to soil/foundation movement. The Inspector recommends repair or replacement of the downspout by a qualified contractor.

2.4.2 - Roof Drainage System

Improper slope- QC
Northeast

Gutters in certain areas sloped incorrectly. This will result in spillage and runoff draining to the foundation. This condition can result in excessively high moisture levels in soil at the foundation. Excessive moisture levels in soil near the foundation can effect the ability of the soil to support the weight of the structure above. The Inspector recommends correction to help protect the home structure and occupants. All work should be performed by a qualified contractor.

4.2.2 - Walkways

Exposed aggregate

Some walkways exhibited concrete pitting with aggregate (concrete-embedded stones) visible in the bottoms of pits. This condition is typical of the use of types of aggregate that absorb water and expend during freezing weather, causing the immediately-overlying concrete to fracture.

4.5.1 - Porch

Moderate cracking- SE/QC
East

Moderate porch foundation cracking was visible at the time of the inspection This condition appeared to be consistent with cracking caused by soil movement. If this condition was caused by inadequate compaction at the time of original construction, soil will have stabilized by now. If it was caused by expansive soil, or excessive amounts of moisture in the soil supporting the foundation, movement and cracking may continue. Determining the soil condition would require the services of a soils (geotechnical) engineer. The Inspector recommends crack repair by a qualified masonry contractor to help prevent future damage from freezing moisture.

4.6.1 - Deck, Balcony, Bridge and Porch,

Peeling paint
West

The back porch had peeling paint that needed maintenance. Failure to maintain the finish coating will allow Ultra Violet (UV) radiation from sunlight, heat, moisture and freezing moisture to reduce the lifespan of concrete exposed to weather. The Inspector recommends repainting the porch to protect it from further damage.

6.1.1 - Floors

Moderate widespread squeaking- QC

Wood floors throughout most of the home exhibited moderate squeaking along major paths of travel. This is usually due to fastener movement- either of the wood flooring or the subfloor beneath it. If the fault lies with the flooring fasteners it can be difficult to correct because the flooring is fastened as it is installed in such a manner that fasteners are not accessible once installation is complete. You may wish to consult with a flooring contractor to discuss options and costs for correction.

12.3.1 - Foundation

Efflorescence visible

Efflorescence (white powdery deposits) visible on the surface of the concrete floor slab is an indication of moisture intrusion. Moisture intrusion can affect the ability of the soil beneath the foundation to carry the weight of the structure above and may cause structural damage from soil movement. Moisture intrusion can also damage materials and encourage the growth of microbes such as mold. Efforts should be made to identify the source of the moisture and correct this condition.
