Aging Roof
Entire roof

Overall roof appears to be in functional condition and no signs of failure were observed at the time of inspection from either the exterior or the attic area. There was a significant amount of granules from the shingles in the gutters. The roof may be nearing the end of it's useful life. The client should monitor the roof to ensure it continues to shed water properly, and consider budgeting for a new roof in the next few years. It is recommended that the client consult a roofing professional to determine the remaining life expectancy of the current roof covering.

2.2.2 - Roof Drainage Systems

Downspout drainage
Right side of home and left front corner

Downspouts drain to underground system and out to curb. For at least three downspouts, the connection to the underground discharge system is damaged. Two (first three photos) have minor damage. Another, left front of home, is not connected at all allowing water to build up around the foundation which could cause water penetration into the building envelope, potentially causing foundation damage if not corrected. This downspout, shown in the third and fourth picture requires immediate attention to prevent damage to the home.

I recommend flushing & servicing your water heater tank annually for optimal performance. Water temperature should be set to at least 120 degrees F to kill microbes and no higher than 130 degrees F to prevent scalding.

22.2.1 - Ventilation

Exhaust vent
Attic, right side of home.

An exhaust vent from one of the bathrooms is vented to the right side of the home. The client observed a bird exiting the vent at the time of his first visit to the home. The exterior vent cover has recently been replaced. Bird residue is present on the roof confirming the presence of bird activity at this location. The vent duct is damaged at the point of connection, presumably from bird activity, to the exterior vent allowing the vent to discharge into the attic rather than outside. No other bird damage was observed at the time of inspection. Recommend repair of the exhaust duct.
