1 - Thank You

Thank You

Five21 Home Inspections LLC  is pleased to submit the enclosed report. This report is a professional opinion based on a visual inspection of the readily accessible areas and components of the building. This report is neither an engineering inspection nor an exhaustive technical evaluation. An engineering inspection or a technical evaluation of this nature would cost many times more and take days, if not weeks, to complete.

Please understand that there are limitations to this type of visual inspection. Many components of the property are not visual during the inspection and very little historical information (if any) is provided in advance of, or even during, the inspection, While we believe we can reduce your risk of purchasing a property, we can not eliminate it, nor can or do we assume it. Even the most comprehensive inspection cannot be expected to reveal every condition you may consider significant to ownership. In addition to those improvements recommended in our report, we recommended that you budget for unexpected repairs. On the average, we have found it necessary for you to set aside a percentage of the value of the home on an annual basis that will be sufficient to cover unexpected repairs. This maybe 1 % for a modest home and a higher amount, say maybe 3 % or so, for a more complex and /or an older home with aging systems and some deferred maintenance.

Your attention is directed to your copy of the Pre-Inspection Agreement. It more specifically explains the scope of the inspection and the limit of our ability in performing this inspection. The Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics of the International Association of Certification Home Inspectors (InterNACHI) prohibit us from making any repairs or referring any contractors. We are not associated with any other party to the transaction of this property, except as may be disclosed by you.

The information provided in this report is solely for your use. Five21 Home Inspections LLC  will not release a copy or this report, nor will we discuss its contents with any third party, without your written consent.


We know you had many options in your choice of an inspection company. Thank you for selecting us. We appreciate the opportunity to be your choice in the building inspection industry. Should you have any questions about the general conditions of the house in the future, we would be happy to answer these


2 - General Information

General Information

Introductory Information

This is intended as general information for you to view at the time of reading the report. Please refer to the pre-inspection agreement for specific details regarding the scope of the inspection. The inspector will perform a limited visual inspection of the building and provide client with a written report identifying the defects that were observed and deemed material at the time of the inspection. Material defect means a condition, or functional aspect, of a structural component or system that is readily ascertainable during a home inspection that substantially affects the value, habitability or safety of the dwelling, but does not include decorative, stylistic, cosmetic, or aesthetic aspects of the system, structure or component. The inspection is limited to the readily accessible and visible systems, equipment and components of the home. 

This report is intended only as a general guide to help the client make their own evaluation of the overall condition of the home, and is not intended to reflect the value of the premises, nor make any representation as to the advisability of purchase. The inspection and report are not intended to be technically exhaustive, or to imply that every component was inspected, or that every possible defect was discovered.  The inspection should not be considered a guarantee or warranty of any kind. The inspection is performed in compliance with NJ standards of practice, a copy of which was included in your pre-inspection agreement, and is available here: https://www.njconsumeraffairs.gov/regulations/Chapter-40-Subchapter-15-Home-Inspection-Advisory-Committee.pdf

All components designated for inspection in the standards are inspected, except as may be noted in the Limitations of Inspection sections within this report. It is recommended that all components noted in the Limitations should be made accessible and inspected prior to proceeding with the Sale/Purchase. We do not inspect anything not readily observable or obstructed by the following (but not limited to): floor coverings, suspended ceiling tiles, insulation, furniture or personal property, soil, vegetation, water, ice or snow. We are not required to determine the remaining life or future failure of any component, the causes of any deficiency, methods/costs of corrections, suitability of the property for specialized use, market value, advisability of purchase of the property, the presence of, rodents, insects, rot/decay, fungus, or underground items. We are not required to operate any component that is shut down or is otherwise inoperable, operate valves, light pilots, determine the presence of hazardous substances, or enter hazardous areas. We are not required to inspect fences, soil conditions, spas, pools (and related equipment), outbuildings, sprinklers, private waste disposal systems, intercoms, security systems, low voltage lighting, timers, wells, window-unit air conditioners, and heating/cooling systems when weather conditions or other circumstances may cause equipment damage. We are not required to determine non-compliance with manufacturers specifications or applicable regulatory requirements, including (but not limited to) building code compliance. 

Inspectors are not required to enter into or onto any area or surface, or perform any procedure or operation which will, in the sole opinion of the inspector, likely be dangerous to the inspector or others or damage the property, its systems or components; this includes walking upon the roof surface. The inspector is not required to enter crawlspaces or attics that are not readily accessible nor any area which has less than 24 by 30 of clearance or a permanently installed walkway or which will, in the sole opinion of the inspector, likely to be dangerous, inaccessible, or partially inaccessible to the inspector or other persons, or where entry could possibly cause damage to the property or its systems or components.

Comments

The functionality, operation and location of smoke/fire/carbon monoxide detectors is not part of this inspection. Upon taking occupancy, proper operation and placement of smoke/fire/carbon monoxide detectors should be verified and batteries should be changed. These devices have a limited life span and should be replaced at recommended intervals. If no smoke/fire/carbon monoxide detectors are installed you should consider installation of battery operated and/or hardwired smoke/fire/carbon monoxide detectors in all recommended locations.

All repairs made to the property should be performed by qualified licensed professionals only. Related parts of the repairable components should be inspected by the qualified professional when the repairs are made. We recommend that you or your representative carry out a final walk-through inspection immediately before closing to check the condition of the property.

3 - Home Maintenances Information

Information

A list of things you should do when moving into your new home and a few regular maintenance items.
 
 Roof leaks: Roofs may leak at any time. Leaks often appear to roof penetrations, flashing's, changes in direction or changes in material. A roof leak should be addressed promptly to avoid damage to the structure, interior finishes and furnishings . A roof leak does not necessarily mean the roof has to be replaced.

 Annual Roof Maintenance: We recommend an annual inspection and tune-up to minimize the risk of leakage and to maximize the life of your roof.

 Ice Dams on Roofs: Most roofs are susceptible to ice dams under the right weather conditions. This is where ice forms at the lower edge of a sloped roof, causing melting water from above to back up under the shingles. We cannot predict which roofs will suffer the most damage under adverse weather conditions.
 Maintaining the Exterior of your Home: Care should be taken with lawn sprinkler systems (irrigation systems). These can wet and damage exterior walls and cause leakage problems into basements and crawl spaces. Water should not be directed against or adjacent to the building. We recommend upgrading older non-frost type hose bibs. While these may have been acceptable at the time of construction, upgrading to frost proof type hose bibs with built in anti siphon devices can help prevent freezing and contamination of the water supply system. Frost proof type hose bibs extend the valve seat into the warm side of the home to prevent freezing. Anti siphon devices or back flow preventer valves prevent the introduction on non potable/waste water into the water supply system when a sudden drop in pressure occurs.


 Also, Regular maintenance includes painting and caulking of all exterior wood. Trees and shrubs should be kept trimmed away from the walls and roof to prevent vermin access and mechanical damage.

 Heating and Cooling System - Annual Maintenance: Over time, dust/dirt will build up inside ducts. As every person has a different level of resistance to dust, a wise environmental hygiene investment would be to have the existing ducts cleaned.

 Heating and Cooling System - Annual Maintenance: An annual maintenance agreement that covers parts and labor is recommended for all heating and cooling equipment. Humidifiers and electronic air cleaners should be included in the service agreement. The first service visit should be arranged as soon as possible, preferably before the equipment is used. Filters for furnaces and air conditioners should be checked monthly during the operating season and changed when they are dirty. Duct systems should be balanced during regular servicing for maximum comfort. Systems with heating and air conditioning require different balance setups for summer and winter. Gas fireplaces and heaters should be included in annual service plans with gas furnaces, boilers, or water heaters.
 
 Electric System - Label the Panel: The electrical panel should be labeled to indicate what is controlled be each fuse or breaker. Where the panel is already labelled, please verify the labeling is correct. Do not rely on the labeling being accurate.

Bathtub and Shower Maintenance: Caulking and grout in bathtubs and showers should be checked every six months and improved as necessary to prevent leakage and damage behind wall surfaces.

 Washing Machine Hoses: We suggest braided steel hoses rather than rubber hoses for connecting washing machines to supply piping in the home. A ruptured hose can result in serious water damage in a short time, especially if the laundry area is in or above a finished area of the home.
 
 Smoke and Carbon Monoxide (CO) Detectors: Smoke and carbon monoxide detectors should be provided at every floor level of every home, including basements and crawl spaces. Even if they are present during the inspection, we recommend replacing detectors. Smoke detectors should be close to sleeping areas, and carbon monoxide detectors should be in any room with a wood burning stove or fireplace. These devices are not tested as part of a home inspection. Once you take possession of the home, detectors should be tested regularly, and replaced every 10 years. If unsure of the age of a smoke detector, it should be replaced. Smoke detector batteries should be replaced annually.

 Clothes Dryer Vents: It is recommended to have dry vents professionally cleaned on a change of ownership. Dirty/clogged dryer vents can cause a house fire. Regular cleaning of the vent pipe is required to avoid blockages in the pipe.
 
 Clothes Dryer Vents: We recommend vents for clothes dryers discharge outside the home, and the vent material should be smooth walled (not corrugated) metal, and the run should be as short and straight as practical. This reduces drying time, energy consumption and cost; and minimizes the risk of a lint fire inside the vent.

Gas Fire place: To eliminate problems such as, incomplete combustion and condensation, have venting system evaluated by a certified chimney sweep company. They can recommend measures to make your entire system function safely and efficiently. Level two inspection.
 
 Lead - based paint was banned for use in housing in 1978. All houses built before 1978 are likely to contain lead. The extent or cause of damage, due to a deficiency,cannot be fully determined without an invasive inspection which is why it is important to ensure all deficiencies mentioned in this report are further evaluated, and repairs are performed by a licensed, insured, qualified professional prior to closing.

Exteriors

When conducting the inspection of the exterior components, a home inspector shall: Inspect: Exterior surfaces, excluding shutters, and screening, awnings, and other similar seasonal accessories; Exterior doors excluding storm doors or safety glazing; Windows excluding storm windows and safety glazing; Attached or adjacent decks, balconies, stoops, steps, porches, and their railings; Vegetation, grading, drainage, and retaining walls with respect to their immediate detrimental effect on the condition of the residential building, excluding fences, geological and/or soil conditions, sea walls, break-walls, bulkheads and docks, or erosion control and earth stabilization; Attached or adjacent walkways, patios, and driveways; Garage doors including automatic door openers and entrapment protection mechanisms, excluding remote control devices; and Describe exterior wall surface type and material.
The exterior review is not an environmental assessment; It is visual in nature and is based on our experience and understanding of common building materials and methods. Our review does not take into consideration the normal wear associated with virtually all properties. You should routinely observe exterior components and keep them well sealed and finished against the weather. When poorly finished, damaged, decayed or open/unsealed areas exist or when windows, doors and other through wall Openings and projections are not kept well seated, hidden damage can exist or occur. Areas with little or no roof overhang need particular attention. Heavy vegetation can also cause deterioration and conceal damage; when present, client is encouraged to have it trimmed for further observation and maintenance as needed.

Inspection Method
Visual

The home inspector shall observe: siding, flashings, eaves, soffits, and fascias, trim, entry doors and a representative number of windows. Inspector shall also observe decks, balconies, stoops, steps, areaways, porches and railings, vegetation, grading, drainage, driveways, patios, walkways, and retaining walls with respect to their effect on the condition of the building. The home inspector shall describe siding materials, operate all entryway doors and a representative number of windows, operate garage doors manually or by using permanently installed controls for any garage door operator. The inspector shall report whether or not any garage door operator will automatically reverse or stop when meeting reasonable resistance during closing. Inspector shall also probe exterior wood components where deterioration is suspected and accessible. The home inspector is not required to observe or report on storm doors, screening, shutters, awnings, fences, safety glazing in doors and windows, garage door operator remote control transmitters, geological conditions, soil conditions, spas, saunas, steam baths, swimming pools, tennis courts, playground equipment, setached buildings or structures. The home inspector does not search for or report on the presence or condition of underground fuel storage tanks. The home inspector is not required to move personal items, furniture, equipment, plants, debris, soil, snow, or ice that obstructs access or visibility.

Eaves, Soffits & Fascia: Eaves Fascia/Soffit

The scope of our Fascia/Soffit inspection is limited to a visual inspection from the ground using binoculars. In most cases, these areas cannot be probed. Aluminum and/or vinyl wrap cannot be removed. The fascia/soffit areas appeared generally intact at the time of inspection. Periodic monitoring and routine maintenance is required

Roof

When inspecting the roof of a residential building, the home inspector shall: Inspect: Roofing surface, excluding antennae and other installed accessories such as solar heating systems, lightning arresters, and satellite dishes; Roof drainage systems; Flashing Skylights; Exterior of chimneys. Describe: Roof surface; Roof drainage systems; Flashing; Skylights; Chimneys. Employ reasonable, practicable and safe methods to inspect the roof such as: Walking on the roof; Observation from a ladder at roof level; or Visual examination with binoculars from ground level; and Describe the methods used to inspect the roof.
The scope of our roof inspection is limited to "visible areas" as defined in the method of inspection. Sub-surfaces cannot be evaluated. The roofs actual future life expectancy cannot be reliably predicted. Antennae, solar systems,
lighting arresters, satellite dishes and other installed accessories are excluded from the inspection. All roofs will
leak at some point in their lifetime. This report does not represent an expressed or implied warranty against roof leakage.

Inspection Method
Binoculars

Our roof inspection is primarily to determine if any of the roof or it's components are damaged, deteriorating, missing or improperly installed. We do our best to walk every roof, but sometimes that is not possible due to weather, steep slope, height or safety concerns. Portions of the flashing, underlayment, and ice shield are not in view and cannot be evaluated for condition or presence by a visual inspection; therefore, our review is not a guarantee nor a certification against roof leaks, it is simply a visual inspection of accessible areas. The best way to determine whether a roof is water tight is to thoroughly inspect it during a heavy rainfall. Normally, this is not the condition during our inspection. Any repair or replaement work recommended should be made by a professional licensed roofing contractor.

Pictures
Roof Drainage Systems: Gutter Material
Aluminum

Properly functioning gutters will help with keeping foundation walls and basements drier. Gutter end caps and joints, and downspout connections commonly leak. Properly sealing these connections will help prevent water intrusion and issues in the future. Gutters should be cleaned as part of a regular maintenance routine to allow for proper water drainage.

Roof Drainage Systems: Downspout material
aluminum

Properly instaleld and functioning downspouts will help with keeping foundation walls and basements drier. All downspouts should emty at least 6' from the foundation.

Flashings: Material
Asphalt, Copper

Some flashing components will not be visible during a routine home inspection and cannot be evaluated for condition or presence by a visual inspection; therefore, our review is not a guarantee that flashing is present, nor a certification against roof leaks, it is simply a visual inspection of accessible areas.

When inspecting the electrical system, a home inspector inspect shall: Inspect: Service entrance system; Main disconnects, main panel and sub panels, including interior components of main panel and sub panels; Service grounding; Wiring, without measuring amperage, voltage or impedance, excluding any wiring not a part of the primary electrical power distribution system, such as central vacuum systems, remote control devices, telephone or cable system wiring, intercom systems, security systems and low voltage wiring systems; Over-current protection devices and the compatibility of their ampacity with that of the connected wiring; At least one of each interior installed lighting fixture, switch, and receptacle per room and at least one exterior installed lighting fixture, switch, and receptacle per side of house; and Ground fault circuit interrupters; and Describe: Amperage and voltage rating of the service; Location of main disconnect, main panels, and sub-panels; Type of over-current protection devices; Predominant type of wiring; Presence of knob and tube branch circuit wiring; Presence of solid conductor aluminum branch circuit wiring.We do not move belongings and we do not examine every fixture, outlet, wiring run, etc., nor do we remove insulation or wall coverings.  The actual routing of wiring from panel box to specific outlets/lights/rooms, etc. cannot be determined.  We use a standard electrical tester to check a sample of outlets. While the tester is generally reliable, it can be fooled by certain improper wiring practices, which we cannot detect during a general home inspection.   Central vacuum systems, remote control devices, telephone, cable system wiring, intercom systems, security systems and low voltage wiring systems are excluded from the inspection.  The majority of the electrical system is hidden behind walls and floors. Inspectors are not permitted to open up wall, floor and/or ceiling plates to verify proper wiring. Other more intrusive evaluations are available and may require opening up walls, ceilings and floors.

Heating System

When inspecting the heating system, a home inspector shall: Inspect: Installed heating equipment and energy sources, without determining heat supply adequacy or distribution balance, and without operating automatic safety controls or operating heat pumps when weather conditions or other circumstances may cause damage to the pumps, and excluding humidifiers, electronic air filters and solar heating systems; Combustion vent systems and chimneys, excluding interiors of flues or chimneys; Fuel storage tanks, excluding propane and underground storage tanks; Visible and accessible portions of the heat exchanger, removing the flame roll-out shield if applicable; and Describe: Heating equipment and distribution type; Energy sources.The scope of our heating inspection is limited to a visual & operational check of the heating plant(s). The system can only be activated via the thermostat. The adequacy of the heating system and their ability to effectively heat all areas of the structure is unable to be determined under the scope of this inspection. In hot weather conditions, our heating inspection is considered limited. We suggest that the sellers be consulted to determine temperature deficiencies.  We suggest that the sellers be consulted to determine if the systems have ever been modified to support areas not incorporated into the original design and to determine if they are aware of any temperature deficiencies.  Humidifiers, electronic air filters and solar heating systems are excluded from the inspection.  The scope of our Flue inspection is limited to the visible areas of the external flue where visible. The internal conditions of the Flue and Chimney cannot be determined. The actual age of the unit cannot be determined. Consult owner for all details

Equipment: Air filter

There is an air filter inside the furnace. It should be replaced every 4-8 weeks, depending on season and activity inside house, for optimal performance.

Limted access to ductwork

Much of the ductwork is concealed within floors, walls and ceilings, and therefore can not be inspected. We make every effort to confirm each duct is connected by testing air flow at registers.

Distribution Systems not inspected.

When inspecting the heating system, a home inspector shall: 1) Inspect: i) Installed heating equipment and energy sources, without determining heat supply adequacy or distribution balance, and without operating automatic safety controls or operating heat pumps when weather conditions or other circumstances may cause damage to the pumps, and excluding humidifiers, electronic air filters and solar heating systems; ii) Combustion vent systems and chimneys, excluding interiors of flues or chimneys; iii) Fuel storage tanks, excluding propane and underground storage tanks; and iv) Visible and accessible portions of the heat exchanger; and 2) Describe: i) Heating equipment and distribution type; and ii) Energy sources.

PLUMBING SYSTEM

When inspecting the plumbing system, a home inspector shall: Inspect: Interior water supply and distribution systems including functional water flow and functional drainage, excluding wells, well pumps, well water sampling or water storage related equipment, determination of water supply quantity or quality and water conditioning systems and lawn irrigation systems; All interior fixtures and faucets, excluding shut off valves, wells, well pumps, well water sampling and water storage related equipment; Drain, waste and vent systems; Domestic water heating systems, without operating safety valves or automatic safety controls, and excluding solar water heating systems; Combustion vent systems excluding interiors of flues and chimneys; Fuel distribution systems;  Drainage sumps, sump pumps and related piping; and Describe: Predominant interior water supply and distribution piping materials; Predominant drain, waste and vent piping materials; Water heating equipment including energy sources.The plumbing inspection consists of looking for visible leaks and checking for functional flow at faucets and drainage at fixtures.  We will report any visible leaks, but even if we don't see any, you can expect them in the future. Since shut off valves are operated infrequently, it is not unusual for them to become frozen over time. They can leak or break when operated after a period of inactivity, thus no shut-off valves are operated during the inspection. We recommend you use care when operating shut-off valves, keeping in mind you may have a leak any time you operate them. Regular turning of shut-off valves and angle stops may limit the amount of maintenance required over time. We cannot review parts of the plumbing system that are concealed. The majority of plumbing system is hidden behind walls and floors. Our inspectors are not permitted to open up wall, floor and/or ceiling plates to verify proper plumbing. Older plumbing (Brass, Galvanized Iron, cast iron Etc.) is prone to failing without notice. Other more intrusive evaluations are available and may require opening up walls, ceilings and floors. Contract as desired.This is a limited water test by flushing toilets and running fixture water, this is not a solid waste test, no liability will be accepted for any problems with in ground lines, hidden lines or any line blockage.

However, if the house was built before 1989 or older, you should have a plumber (with a sewer camera) snake drain lines to determine their condition. Main sewer lines can collapse suddenly if older than 30 years

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.

Sump Pump: Battery backup present?
no

A battery backup is a good way to insure that the sump pump continues to operate if there is a power outage during a storm. A missing battery backup is NOT a defect. This is for informational purposes only.

When inspecting the plumbing system, a home inspector shall: 

1) Inspect: i) Interior water supply and distribution systems including functional water flow and functional drainage, excluding wells, well pumps, well water sampling or water storage related equipment, determination of water supply quantity or quality and water conditioning systems and lawn irrigation systems; ii) All interior fixtures and faucets, excluding shut off valves, wells, well pumps, well water sampling and water storage related equipment; iii) Drain, waste and vent systems; iv) Domestic water heating systems, without operating safety valves or automatic safety controls, and excluding solar water heating systems; v) Combustion vent systems excluding interiors of flues and chimneys; vi) Fuel distribution systems; and vii) Drainage sumps, sump pumps and related piping; and

When inspecting the interior of a residential building, a home inspector shall: Inspect: Walls, ceilings, and floors excluding paint, wallpaper and other finish treatments, carpeting and other non-permanent floor coverings; Steps, stairways, and railings; Installed kitchen wall cabinets to determine if secure; At least one interior passage door and operate one window per room excluding window treatments;  Household appliances limited to: (1) The kitchen range and oven to determine operation of burners or heating elements excluding microwave ovens and the operation of self-cleaning cycles and appliance timers and thermostats; (2) Dishwasher to determine water supply and drainage; and (3) Garbage disposer.The scope of our interior inspection consists of a visual inspection of the Walls, Floors, Ceilings, Steps, Stairways, Railings, Cabinets, passage doors and one window per room. All systems should be re-tested during the walk-thru inspection.  The inspection of kitchen appliances is conducted as a courtesy and falls outside the major structural and/or mechanical scope of our inspection. No guarantee or warranty of future performance is expressed or implied. The ability of an appliance to work effectively through all cycles, Etc. cannot be determined. All appliances must be checked during the walk-thru inspection to ensure proper operation.  The appliances listed in his report are operated, if accessible and if power and/or fuel are supplied. Cooking systems are checked for burner operation but not for calibration, timers, special features or cleaning cycles. Built in dishwashers are checked to ensure that water flows into the unit.  Please double check appliance operations just before closing and re-check for secure cabinets, counters and appliances. Clients are advised to purchase a home warranty plan, because appliances, including new ones can fail at any time, without any warning, including immediately after the inspection.  Minor cracks in walls & ceilings are very common in most homes. Most small cracks usually indicate minor movement. These are typically not serious and are considered to be normal, as the house gets older. Larger cracks may indicate ongoing movement and further evaluation may be warranted. Stains are tested with a moisture meter to determine if wet or dry at the time of the inspection. As a house experiences settling or movement within the walls, one of the first noticeable signs will likely be at the Interior doorframes. If a door sticks, it usually means the doorframes are no longer square. Sometimes they are not built square. If numerous sticking doors are present, further evaluation for settlement should be made. A representative number of windows are opened when access is available. We do not move furniture or personal belongings to get to all windows; it is impossible to determine if the seals are intact in multi pane insulated windows. Conditions such as light, humidity and temperature can make the appearance vary from day to day. You should review the appearance of these type windows again at your final walk through prior to closing on the property.

When inspecting the interior of a residential building, a home inspector shall: 

1) Inspect: i) Walls, ceilings, and floors excluding paint, wallpaper and other finish treatments, carpeting and other non-permanent floor coverings; ii) Steps, stairways, and railings; iii) Installed kitchen wall cabinets to determine if secure; iv) At least one interior passage door and operate one window per room excluding window treatments; and v) Household appliances limited to: (1) The kitchen range and oven to determine operation of burners or heating elements excluding microwave ovens and the operation of self-cleaning cycles and appliance timers and thermostats; (2) Dishwasher to determine water supply and drainage; and (3) Garbage disposer.
