Observed ledger board deficiency.

The most common cause of deck/stair collapse is when a ledgers pull away from the band joists of homes and buildings. The two most common ways to correctly attach a ledger to a structure are with lag screws or through-bolts.

LIMITATIONS OF ROOFING INSPECTION:

This is a visual inspection only. Roofing life expectancies can vary depending on several factors, including maintenance and exposure. Any estimates of remaining roof life are approximations only and do not preclude the possibility of leakage and future repairs. Leakage can develop at any time and may depend on rain intensity, wind direction, ice or moss build-up and other factors. Cracked roof tiles are functionally compromised tiles which have the potential for leakage. Solar panels are not part of the roofing system and are not inspected. We recommend contacting a solar company for evaluation of the solar system. The inspection of the roofing system was limited in scope by (but not restricted to) the following conditions:

Not all the underside of the roof sheathing is inspected for evidence of leaks. Evidence of prior leaks may be disguised by interior finishes. Antenna, chimney/flue interiors which are not readily accessible are not inspected and could require repair. Roof inspection may be limited by access, condition, weather, or other safety concerns

Have the agent ask the homeowner about any ceiling stains and leak activity whether past or present. A homeowner is obligated by the seller's disclosure paperwork to truthfully report on any roof leak issues since they have owned the home.Make sure you have reviewed the seller's disclosure statement in its entirety.


An inspection of the roof includes the roof covering materials; gutters and downspout systems; visible flashings; roof vents; skylights, and any other roof penetrations; and the portions of the chimneys and flues visible from the exterior.

The inspector is not required to: A. walk on any roof surface. B. predict the service life expectancy. C. inspect underground downspout diverter drainage pipes. D. remove snow, ice, debris or other conditions that prohibit the observation of the roof surfaces. E. move insulation. F. inspect antennae, satellite dishes, lightning arresters, de-icing equipment, or similar attachments. G. walk on any roof areas that appear, in the inspectors opinion, to be unsafe. H. walk on any roof areas if doing so might, in the inspector's opinion, cause damage. I. perform a water test. J. warrant or certify the roof. K. confirm proper fastening or installation of any roof-covering material.

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.

Here is a nice maintenance guide from Lowe's to help.

TPR Valve:
Water Heater
Proper Discharge Piping

Functional 

A TPR valve was in place, and appeared functional. These are not tested due to the fact that once they are tested, they tend to form a drip leak. These valves allow the water heater to expel water and pressure if the tank reaches a pressure over 150psi, or the water temperature exceeds 210 degrees. No deficiencies were observed with the valve unless otherwise noted in this report. Click here for safety information on TPR valves.

LIMITATIONS OF ELECTRICAL INSPECTION:


The electrical inspection was not technically exhaustive, did not include the use of meters or probes, nor did it determine code compliance. Actual electrical load and demand calculations require the services of a qualified electrician, and therefore, are beyond the scope of this inspection. The service amperage is determined by the lowest rating of the main service entrance wires, the listed amperage rating on the main service panel, or the size of the main disconnect. The inspection of low voltage wiring systems, including intercom systems, and security and/or fire alarm systems was not within the scope of this inspection.

The inspection of the electrical wiring included a random testing of accessible installed fixtures, switches, and outlets. All accessible outlets within six feet of plumbing fixtures and on the exterior were tested for grounding and polarity. Wiring within walls and ceilings is not visible, therefore, is not within the scope of this inspection. The accessible electrical wiring, outlets and switches were inspected and appeared to be in serviceable condition except as noted below.


The inspection of the electrical system includes the service drop through the main panel; sub-panels including feeders; branch circuits, connected devices, and lighting fixtures.

The inspector is not required to: A. insert any tool, probe or device into the main panelboard, sub-panels, distribution panelboards, or electrical fixtures. B. operate electrical systems that are shut down. C. remove panelboard cabinet covers or dead fronts. D. operate or re-set over-current protection devices or overload devices. E. operate or test smoke or carbon-monoxide detectors or alarms F. inspect, operate or test any security, fire or alarms systems or components, or other warning or signaling systems. G. measure or determine the amperage or voltage of the main service equipment, if not visibly labeled. H. inspect ancillary wiring or remote-control devices. I. activate any electrical systems or branch circuits that are not energized. J. inspect low-voltage systems, electrical de-icing tapes, swimming pool wiring, or any timecontrolled devices. K. verify the service ground. L. inspect private or emergency electrical supply sources, including, but not limited to: generators, windmills, photovoltaic solar collectors, or battery or electrical storage facility.

LIMITATIONS COOLING INSPECTION:

The inspection was visual only, and did not include the disassembly of any parts or system components. The cooling equipment inspection was performed using normal operating controls and by removing access panels provided by the equipment manufacturer or installer for routine homeowner maintenance. It was not within the scope of the heating equipment inspection to determine or calculate the uniformity, adequacy or efficiency of the heating system, or the air supply system. There will be some temperature variation from room to room, most noticeable during the cooling season. The cooling equipment inspection does not constitute a guarantee or warrantee of any kind, nor does it represent that any system observed functional at the time of the inspection will remain so for any period of time following the inspection.

The inspection of the heating/air conditioning system includes the heating/cooling equipment; heating/cooling distribution equipment and the operating controls.

The inspector is not required to: A. determine the uniformity, temperature, flow, balance, distribution, size, capacity, BTU, or supply adequacy of the cooling system. B. inspect portable window units, through-wall units, or electronic air filters. C. operate equipment or systems if the exterior temperature is below 65 Fahrenheit, or when other circumstances are not conducive to safe operation or may damage the equipment.

MOLD

This home inspection is not an inspection for mold. Mold can be present in any home. Mold cannot grow unless there is excess moisture. The key to mold control is moisture control. While this inspection attempts to detect high moisture conditions that can lead to mold growth, be advised that mold can grow in hidden areas which are beyond the scope of this inspection. If mold is a concern to you, you should obtain a further evaluation by a mold specialist prior to the end of the inspection contingency.
