A. Foundations: Type of Foundation(s)
Concrete Slab

Foundation is a slab on grade and visually appears to be performing its intended function at the time of the inspection.

The TREC inspector for this inspection is not a professional engineer. The opinions given on the performance of this structures foundation are based on the knowledge and experience of the inspector and may be subjective and may vary from the opinions of other inspectors. The inspector makes comments comprised of opinion and not fact, determinations that are factual are available via specialized qualified and licensed engineering studies, which are beyond the scope of this inspection. Future performance of the foundation is not warranted. If you note any changes / observations from this report at a later date from what has been reported herein, a re-assessment should be made by a qualified and licensed engineer / foundation contractor and appropriate action taken. The foundation inspection performed was a cursory and limited to visual observations of accessible / visible exterior and interior structural components of the house at the time of the inspection. No foundation measurements (elevation or otherwise) have been made or are within scope of this inspection.

B. Grading and Drainage: Grading and Drainage

Grading and drainage visually appear to be performing their intended function by moving water away from the home at the time of the inspection.

Maintenance tip: It is standard practice and recommendation to maintain soil levels a minimum of six (6) to eight (8) inches below the top of the slab and graded away from the slab, at a minimum rate of six (6) inches per every 10 feet, to promote positive drainage and to prevent water from pooling/standing around the foundation area(s). Standard soil levels will also reduce possible moisture exposure and help detect insect/pest activity.

C. Roof Covering Materials: Images of Roof

Roof is in good condition and appears to have been recently sealed. 

E. Walls (Interior and Exterior): Siding Material
Stucco

Maintenance tip: Sealing/caulking is recommended as part of an ongoing maintenance program. Sealing and caulking of exterior jambs and masonry junctions, threshold and
curd areas, exterior siding and trim, fascia, wall exits, and windows areas to name a few,
will help reduce possible water penetration and weather-related deterioration.

G. Doors (Interior and Exterior): Garage Door Into Dwelling
Solid Wood

Garage doors into dwelling require a fire rated door. Without a fire rated sticker on the door, we are unable to verify that doors leading into the residence from the garage area are fire rated. Most Solid Wood Doors 1-3/8" thick and Steel Doors are Fire Rated.

H. Windows: Comments

All windows were checked on the home and worked properly at the time of the inspection.

Condensation or signs of moisture between panes of double pane windows typically indicates failure of the seals and may not be visible at all times, depending on weather conditions and other factors. The inspector reports the condition of the property at the time of inspection and makes every effort to find and report all defects, but signs of failed seals may be detected after the inspection as conditions change.

H. Windows: Maintenance Tip

Maintenance tip: Sealing/caulking is recommended as part of an ongoing maintenance program. Sealing and caulking of windows will help reduce possible water penetration and weather related deterioration.

J. Fireplaces and Chimneys: Chimney (exterior)
Stucco
J. Fireplaces and Chimneys: Fireplace Maintenance

Maintaining a fireplace properly is important to help minimize potential hazards from fire or smoke.

D. Roof Structures and Attics: No Attic

The home did not have an accessible attic space and the roof structure was not visible at the time of inspection. 

The inspector shall inspect: The foundation. The crawlspace. The visible structural components. Any present conditions or clear indications of active water penetration observed by the inspector. And report any general indications of foundation movement that are observed by the inspector, such as but not limited to sheetrock cracks, brick cracks, out-of-square door frames or floor slopes.


The inspector is not required to: Enter any crawlspaces that are not readily accessible or where entry could cause damage or pose a hazard to the inspector, Move stored items or debris, Operate sump pumps with inaccessible floats, Identify size, spacing, span, location or determine adequacy of foundation bolting, bracing, joists, joist spans or support systems, Provide any engineering or architectural service, Report on the adequacy of any structural system or component.

Comment
2.6.1 - G. Doors (Interior and Exterior)

Double Keyed Deadbolt
Location: Exterior Screen Doors

A door to the exterior had a deadbolt which required a key for operation from the inside. This condition is unsafe as it may slow or prevent exit during an emergency. Installation of these types of deadbolts is no longer a standard practice in new construction. The Inspector recommends that all deadbolts in the home that require a key for exit from the home interior be replaced with a deadbolt that operates from the inside with a lever.

Possible Water Line Leak

At the time of inspection I checked the water meter after all the water in the home had been turned off and the meter was still turning, indicating water was still flowing to the house due to a possible leak in a water supply line. I did observed a wet area around irrigation water line in the back of the home. I recommend further evaluation for a possible leak in the home by a licensed plumber .
