Listed below is a description of the Categories used throughout the report to help understand the severity of an item.  Any items list in the below categories may be based on the inspector's opinion.  These categories are not designed to be considered as an enforceable repair or responsibility of the current homeowner but designed to inform the current client of the current condition of the property and structure.  They may be used in negotiations between real estate professionals. 

Maintenance Items =  The item, component, or system while perhaps is functioning as intended may be in need of minor repair, service, or maintenance; is showing wear or deterioration that could result in an adverse condition at some point in the future; or consideration should be made in upgrading the item, component, or system to enhance the function, efficiency, and/or safety.  Items that fall into this category frequently be addressed by a homeowner or Licensed Handyman and are considered to be routine homeowner maintenance (DIY) or recommended upgrades.   


Observations=  The item, component, or system while perhaps functioning as intended is in need of moderate repair, service, is showing signs of wear or deterioration that could result is an adverse condition at some point in the future; consideration should be made in upgrading the item, component, or system to enhance the function, efficiency and/or safety. Items falling into this category can frequently be addressed by a licensed handyman or qualified contractor of trade and are not considered routine maintenance or DIY items.  


Safety & Immediate Attention =  The item, component, or system poses a safety concern to occupants in or around the home.  Some listed concerns may have been considered acceptable for the time of the construction of the structure, but pose a current risk.  

The item, component or system is not functioning as intended, or needs further inspection by a qualified licensed contractor of trade; possible damage to the structure, item, or component may occur. Repairs may be possible to satisfactory condition without repair.

Overview
A home inspection is not a pass or fail type of inspection.It is a visual only evaluation of the conditions of the systems and accessible components of the home designed to identify areas of concern within specific systems or components defined by the Florida State Standards of Practice, that are both observed and deemed material by the inspector at the exact date and time of inspection. Conditions can and will change after the inspection over time. Future conditions or component failure can not be foreseen or reported on. Components that are not readily accessible can not be inspected.Issues that are considered as cosmetic are not addressed in this report. (Holes, stains, scratches, unevenness, missing trim, paint and finish flaws or odors). It is not the intent of this report to make the house new again.Any and all recommendations for repair, replacement, evaluation, and maintenance issues found, should be evaluated by the appropriate trades contractors within the clients inspection contingency window or prior to closing, which is contract applicable, in order to obtain proper dollar amount estimates on the cost of said repairs and also because these evaluations could uncover more potential issues than able to be noted from a purely visual inspection of the property. This inspection will not reveal every concern or issue that exists, but only those material defects that were observable on the day of the inspection. This inspection is intended to assist in evaluation of the overall condition of the dwelling only. This inspection is not a prediction of future conditions and conditions with the property are subject to change the moment we leave the premises.

Overall Roof Structure: Roof Inspection method
Walked

We normally conduct our typical roof inspection by walking on the roof's surface in what we call the "random walk" methodology. This method of inspection is not intended to cover every square inch of the roof's surface, nor will it. Further we could not recreate the route of a random walk even if we tried to. We do arrive at an overall impression of the roof's condition developed during this random walk inspection and extrapolate it to the entire roof's surface.

If any discrepancies are in fact identified, it is recommended that to accurately determined the scope of the actual discrepancies, as well as any cost of correction, you consult with a licensed roofing contractor. Not all roof will be walked, dimension, slope, weather, etc may allow the roof to be accessed.

2.3.1 - Gutters/drains

Gutter drains on roof

One or more downspouts terminated above a roof surface, and rainwater from the downspouts washes over the roof surface below. This is a common configuration, but in some cases large quantities of rainwater can damage shingles by removing granules and reduce the life of the roof surface. Consider installing extensions to route the rainwater directly to the closest gutter below to prevent such damage.

One or more minor cracks were found in the wall areas. It is unknown the age of these cracks. At the time of inspection nothing out of the ordinary of normalized cracking was noticed. Recommend caulking and painting these areas, along with monitoring for future movement/widening. cracks over framing can allow moisture penetration behind wall areas and can potentially damage sheathing/framing. Note that areas concealed behind walls are not able to be evaluated without invasive testing and cannot be evaluated.

3.9.1 - Vegetation and Grading

Vegetation

Vegetation such as trees, shrubs and/or vines was in contact with or close to the building exterior. Vegetation can serve as a pathway for wood-destroying insects and can retain moisture against the exterior after it rains. This is a conducive condition for wood-destroying organisms. Recommend pruning, moving or removing vegetation as necessary to maintain at least 6 inches of space between it and the building exterior. A 1-foot clearance is better.

4 - Garage

Vehicle door: Vehicle Entry Door
Automatic

VEHICLE DOOR: safety tips:

1. The garage door is the largest moving object in the home. It can weigh hundreds of pounds. Often it is supported with spring tension Both the weight of the door itself and the condition of these powerful springs can be dangerous on their own. Combined these two items can become a potentially lethal item. During our inspection, we attempt to inspect vehicle doors for proper operation.

2. Operation of the safety mechanisms should be verified monthly. Switches for door openers should be located as high as practical to prevent children from playing with the door. Children should be warned of the potential risk of injury.

3. Regular lubrication of the garage door tracks, rollers, springs and mounting hardware is recommended. ( consult the owners manual or contact the door/opener manufacture. www.overheaddoor.com/Pages/safety-information.aspx

Floors, walls, Ceiling: Items Perimeter
There were items around the perimeter walls of the garage. Because of this areas of the walls(especially the base) can not be evaluated. The garage walls should be checked on the walk through or upon taking ownership.

Minor cracks are common in most homes. These cracks do not aapear to be structural concerns, would recommed caulking and sealing the cracks to prevent moisture from entering the wall structure and causing further damage. Continue to monitor these areas to ensure the cracks do not increase in size, if they do, I recommend consulting with a qualified professional.
