Thank you for choosing Clark Inspections, LLC to perform the inspection on your property! My goal is to help you gain a thorough understanding of the property that you are interested in purchasing. Please carefully read your entire Inspection Report. Feel free to call me after you have reviewed your report if you have any questions. Remember, now that the inspection is completed and the report has been delivered, I am still available to you for any questions you may have throughout the entire closing process, and anytime in the future.

Summary Items

Noted that Not necessarily all reported deficiencies will be included in the report summary. Please read the report thoroughly.

Directional Reference

(Front, Rear, Right and Left) = Location descriptions in the report comments are given in reference to facing the property from the street.

Report Photos

Pictures in Report -Your report includes photographs, which help to clarify where the inspector went, what was inspected, and the condition of a system or component at the time of the inspection. Some of the pictures may be of deficiencies or problem areas. These are to help you better understand what is documented in this report and may allow you to see areas or items that you normally would not see. A pictured issue does not necessarily mean the issue was limited to that area only, but may be a representation of a condition that is in multiple places. Not all areas of deficiencies or conditions will be supported with photos. Please read the report thoroughly.

Purpose of Inspection

The general purpose of this limited, visual inspection, evaluation and report is to provide the client with a better knowledge, the readily visible and accessible and apparent installed systems and components that do not function as intended, allowing for normal wear and tear, or which adversely affect the habitability of the dwelling, without regard to life expectancy.

A inspection is a non-invasive visual examination of a residential or property dwelling, performed for a fee, which is designed to identify observed visible material defects within specific components of said dwelling. Components may include any combination of mechanical, structural, electrical, plumbing, or other essential systems or portions of the property, as identified and agreed to by the Client and Inspector, prior to the inspection process. Properties being inspected do not "Pass" or "Fail.

Residence Age
50-60 years old

Older homes cannot be expected to meet current building code standards. It is common to have areas that no longer comply with current building code standards. While this inspection makes every effort to point out safety issues, it does not inspect for code. It is common that homes of any age will have had repairs performed and some repairs may not be in a workmanlike manner. Some areas may appear less than standard. This inspection looks for items that are not functioning as intended. It does not grade the repair. It is common to see old plumbing or mixed materials. Sometimes water signs in crawlspaces or basements could be years old from a problem that no longer exists. Or, it may still need further attention and repair. Determining this can be difficult on an older home. Sometimes in older homes there are signs of damage to wood from wood eating insects. Having this is typical and fairly common. If the home inspection reveals signs of damage you should have a pest control company inspect further for activity and possible hidden damage. The home inspection does not look for possible manufacturer re-calls on components that could be in this home. Always consider hiring the appropriate expert for any repairs or further inspection. 

Occupancy Status

If this residence was furnished at the time of the inspection portions of the interior were hidden by the occupants belongings. In accordance with industry standards, the inspection is limited to only those surfaces that are exposed and readily accessible. The Inspector does not move furniture, lift floor-covering materials, or remove or rearrange items within closets or on shelving. On your final walk through, or at some point after furniture and personal belongings have been removed, it is important that you inspect the interior portions of the residence that were concealed or otherwise inaccessible at the time of the inspection. Contact the Inspector immediately if any adverse conditions are observed that were not commented on in your inspection report.

General: Roof Ventilation Type

Front elevation had a Gable Vent but with no attic accesss I am not sure if it decorative or vented. 

Roof Coverings: 30 year architectural shingle

 The roof covering was 30 year laminate architectural shingles. In this area of the country singles typically do not last their full life expectancy due to the heat and moisture in the area. The age rating on shingles is an average in average conditions and in the Lowcountry of South Carolina shingles typically last a little less than their full rating. 

The rating can be measured by the thickness of the shingle

Plumbing Vent(s): Rubber flashing

Pipe vents from the plumbing DWV system has rubber flashing. This type of flashing tends to wear around 15-20 years and will not last the age of the shingles. If a leak occurs or a stain forms on a ceiling around a plumbing fixture, then it is most likely coming from a pipe jack. There is a pipe jack repair kits that are easy to slide over old flashing to prevent leaks. This is the most common type of plumbing vent flashings found on roofs. 

5.1 The inspector shall: A. inspect: 1. roofing materials. 2. roof drainage systems. 3. flashing. 4. skylights, chimneys, and roof penetrations. B. describe: 1. roofing materials. 2. methods used to inspect the roofing. 5.2 The inspector is NOT required to inspect: A. antennas.

10.1.1 - Ceilings

Hairline cracks (cosmetic)
Kitchen and Den

One or more areas of the ceiling had several hairline cracks (cosmetic) or bubbles . This damage is cosmetic but if you want to repair it I recommend hiring a handyman unless you have experience with drywall work. 

I checked the areas with a moisture meter and they were dry. 

You could outline the area with a pencil and see if it grows. 

10.1.2 - Ceilings

Moisture Stain
Back elevation bedroom

In the upstairs back elevation bedroom the ceiling had a water stain that showed signs of moisture with palm reader, but with pins it did not show much moisture. The thermal camera showed an anomalle where the stain was. The stain could have come from the rains recently or before the roof was repaired. I recommend asking the seller about this area or having a handyman inspect for leaks. It may be beneficial to view a copy of the master deed to see who is responsible for the roof. 

Palm readers are not reliable like a pin as it is a type of signal that varies and could be picling up outside moisture.
