2.1.1 - Coverings

Organic Material
North Side of Home (Primarily)

By holding moisture against the roof surface, any organic material will speed up the wear of the asphalt shingle surface in freezing climates by increasing frost damage to the mineral granule coating on the shingles. Recommend cleaning of shingles by a qualified roofing contractor. 

Here is a link showing the type of cleaner that is safe for asphalt shingles

Downspouts Drain Near House
Right of Garage Door

One or more downspouts drain too close to the home's foundation. This can result in excessive moisture in the soil at the foundation, which can lead to foundation/structural movement. Recommend a qualified contractor adjust downspout extensions to drain at least 6 feet from the foundation.

3.6.3 - Vegetation, Grading, Drainage & Retaining Walls

Vegetation too close/ in contact with home

Moisture held against the building by shrubs keeps the exterior wet and is more likely to allow water inside the home's foundation which can damage structural components and/or create an environment conducive for mold growth. 

 Additionally vegetation touching the home may allow for insects and rodents, to enter the home. Recommend cutting all vegetation back a minimum of 18".

Recommend periodically opening and closing the main shut off valve to keep the valve from sticking. Often times homeowners will only close the valve in the event of a leak which increase the chances of it breaking in the open or closed position. With the main valve being the first valve inside the home, it can become a much more extensive replacement than any other valve.

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. 

I. The inspector shall inspect: A. the main water supply shut-off valve; B. the main fuel supply shut-off valve; C. the water heating equipment, including the energy source, venting connections, temperature/pressure-relief (TPR) valves, Watts 210 valves, and seismic bracing; D. interior water supply, including all fixtures and faucets, by running the water; E. all toilets for proper operation by flushing; F. all sinks, tubs and showers for functional drainage; G. the drain, waste and vent system; and H. drainage sump pumps with accessible floats. II. The inspector shall describe: A. whether the water supply is public or private based upon observed evidence; B. the location of the main water supply shut-off valve; C. the location of the main fuel supply shut-off valve; D. the location of any observed fuel-storage system; and E. the capacity of the water heating equipment, if labeled. III. The inspector shall report as in need of correction: A. deficiencies in the water supply by viewing the functional flow in two fixtures operated simultaneously; B. deficiencies in the installation of hot and cold water faucets; C. mechanical drain stops that were missing or did not operate if installed in sinks, lavatories and tubs; and D. toilets that were damaged, had loose connections to the floor, were leaking, or had tank components that did not operate. IV. The inspector is not required to: A. light or ignite pilot flames. B. measure the capacity, temperature, age, life expectancy or adequacy of the water heater. C. inspect the interior of flues or chimneys, combustion air systems, water softener or filtering systems, well pumps or tanks, safety or shut-off valves, floor drains, lawn sprinkler systems, or fire sprinkler systems. D. determine the exact flow rate, volume, pressure, temperature or adequacy of the water supply. E. determine the water quality, potability or reliability of the water supply or source. F. open sealed plumbing access panels. G. inspect clothes washing machines or their connections. H. operate any valve. I. test shower pans, tub and shower surrounds or enclosures for leakage or functional overflow protection. J. evaluate the compliance with conservation, energy or building standards, or the proper design or sizing of any water, waste or venting components, fixtures or piping. K. determine the effectiveness of anti-siphon, backflow prevention or drain-stop devices. L. determine whether there are sufficient cleanouts for effective cleaning of drains. M. evaluate fuel storage tanks or supply systems. N. inspect wastewater treatment systems. O. inspect water treatment systems or water filters. P. inspect water storage tanks, pressure pumps, or bladder tanks. Q. evaluate wait time to obtain hot water at fixtures, or perform testing of any kind to water heater elements. R. evaluate or determine the adequacy of combustion air. S. test, operate, open or close: safety controls, manual stop valves, temperature/pressure-relief valves, control valves, or check valves. T. examine ancillary or auxiliary systems or components, such as, but not limited to, those related to solar water heating and hot water circulation. U. determine the existence or condition of polybutylene plumbing. V. inspect or test for gas or fuel leaks, or indications thereof.

7.3.1 - Water Supply, Distribution Systems & Fixtures

Presence of Mold
Upstairs Bathroom

Distribution pipes were observed to be wrapped with a cloth-like material that has grown mold.  Avoid using any organic based material in areas of the home prone to moisture as they are more likely to hold moisture.  The conditions observed in this location are ideal for mold growth.   Recommend removal of the material, cleaning of the area and possible testing by a qualified individual.    Mold can be potentially very harmful to certain individuals so this is a safety concern.
