Inspection Overview

Thank You for choosing Fundamental Home Inspection to perform your complete home inspection. The goal of this inspection and report is to put you in a better position to make an informed real estate decision. This report is a general guide and provides you with some objection information to help you make your own evaluation of the overall condition of the home and is not intended to reflect the value of the property, or to make any representation as to the advisability of purchase. Not all improvements, defects or hazards will be identified during this inspection. Unexpected repairs should still be anticipated.This inspection is not a guarantee or warranty of any kind. Integri-Spec endeavors to perform all inspections in substantial compliance with InterNACHI s Standards of Practice. Please refer to the pre-inspection contract for a full explanation of the scope of the inspection. This Home Inspection Report contains observations of those systems and components that, in the professional judgement of the inspector, are not functioning properly, significantly deficient, unsafe, or are near the end of their useful service lives. If the cause for the deficiency is not readily apparent, the suspected cause or reason why the system or component is at or near end of useful service life is reported, and recommendations for correction or monitoring are made as appropriate.This report is effectively a snapshot of the house recording the conditions on a given date and time. Home inspectors cannot predict future behavior, and as such, we cannot be responsible for things that occur after the inspection. If conditions change, we are available to revisit the property for an additional charge and update our report.Any oral statements made by the Inspector pertaining to Recommended Upgrades or any inclusion in the Inspection Report of information regarding Recommended Upgrades shall be deemed to be informational only and supplied as a courtesy to you and shall not be deemed to be an amendment to or waiver of any exclusions included in the "Home Inspection Agreement and Standards of Practice. 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.This report has been prepared for your exclusive use, as our client. No use by third parties is intended. We will not be responsible to any parties for the contents of the report, other than the part named herein. The report itself is copyrighted, and may not be used in whole or in part without Fundamental Home inspection written permission.Again, thanks very much for the opportunity to conduct this home inspection for you. We are available to you throughout the entire real estate transaction process. Should you have any questions, please call or text Dan At 951-215-9658 or Email danfhica@gmail.com. and again thank you for your business. 

General: Perspective
Locations

For the purpose of this report, all directional references (Left, Right, Front, Back) are based on when facing the front of the structure as depicted in the cover image above.

General: Residence Age
New Construction

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. 

General: Use Of Photos
Photos

Your report includes many photographs. Some pictures are intended as a courtesy and are added for your information. Some are to help clarify where the inspector has been, what was looked at, and the condition of the 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. Not all problem areas or conditions will be supported with photos.

General: Occupancy
Vacant
For furnished homes, access to some items such as electrical outlets, windows, wall/floor surfaces and cabinet interiors can be restricted by furniture and/or personal belongings. These items are limitations of the inspection and these items may be concealed defects.

Attic Access, Within The Attic
The attic space lacked adequate headroom and a walkway and access was obstructed to most of the attic area. As a result, inspection of the attic was limited. Attics may contain potential fire and/or health hazards, other safety issues, damage or defects that have the potential to cause damage to the home or unexpected repairs. Even when an inspection of the attic is completed from within the attic area, these limitations still exist the same.
Attic Insulation: Insulation Type

Attic Insulation: Restricted Access

Access was limited due to attic design with not enough space to safely walk throughout the attic. Attic excluded from the scope of inspection.

I. The inspector shall inspect: A. insulation in unfinished spaces, including attics, crawlspaces and foundation areas; B. ventilation of unfinished spaces, including attics, crawlspaces and foundation areas; and C. mechanical exhaust systems in the kitchen, bathrooms and laundry area. II. The inspector shall describe: A. the type of insulation observed; and B. the approximate average depth of insulation observed at the unfinished attic floor area or roof structure. III. The inspector shall report as in need of correction: A. the general absence of insulation or ventilation in unfinished spaces. IV. The inspector is not required to: A. enter the attic or any unfinished spaces that are not readily accessible, or where entry could cause damage or, in the inspector's opinion, pose a safety hazard. B. move, touch or disturb insulation. C. move, touch or disturb vapor retarders. D. break or otherwise damage the surface finish or weather seal on or around access panels or covers.
