SCOPE

This inspection is a non-invasive examination of readily accessible systems and components as outlined in the Standards of Practice of the American Society of Home Inspectors(ASHI) or state standards. In compliance, our reports are subject to the Definitions, Scope, Limitations, Exceptions, and Exclusions as outlined in the Standards of Practice. A copy of the Standards of Practice may be obtained from your inspector.   In general, home inspections include a visual examination of readily accessible systems and components to help identify material defects - as they exist at the time of the inspection. This is not a technically exhaustive inspection and will not necessarily list all minor home maintenance or repair items. Latent, inaccessible, or concealed defects are excluded from this inspection. Inspectors do not move furniture, appliances, personal items, or other materials that may limit his/her inspection. We do not report on cosmetic or aesthetic issues. Unless otherwise stated, this is not a code inspection. We did not test for environmental hazards or the presence of any potentially harmful substance.

Report Definitions
The following definitions of comment descriptions represent this inspection report:

               Inspected:  The item was visually observed and appears to be functioning as intended.
        Not Inspected:  The item was not inspected(reason for non-inspection should be noted).
            Not Present:  The item was not found or is not present.
              Comments:  The item should be monitored and repair/replacement should be considered(includes definitions, helpful tips, recommended upgrades, conditions requiring repair due to normal wear, and conditions that have not significantly affected usability or function - but may if left unattended).

CATEGORY DEFINITIONS

Listed below is a description of the categories used throughout the report to help understand the severity of an item.  Any items list in the below categories may be based on the inspectors opinion. These categories are not designed to be considered as an enforceable repair or responsibility of the current homeowner, but designed to inform the current client of the current condition of the property and structure. They may be used in negotiations between real estate professionals.    

Maintain, Monitor, or Cosmetic =  The item, component, or system while perhaps is functioning as intended may be in need of minor repair, service, or maintenance; is showing wear or deterioration that could result in an adverse condition at some point in the future; or consideration should be made in upgrading the item, component, or system to enhance the function, efficiency, and/or safety. Items that fall into this category frequently be addressed by a homeowner or licensed handyman and are considered to be cosmetic, routine homeowner maintenance(DIY) or recommended upgrades.  

Repair or Evaluation =  The item, component, or system while perhaps functioning as intended is in need of moderate repair, service, is showing signs of wear or deterioration that could result is an adverse condition at some point in the future; consideration should be made in upgrading the item, component, or system to enhance the function, efficiency and/or safety. Items falling into this category can frequently be addressed by a licensed handyman or qualified contractor of trade and are not considered routine maintenance or DIY items. Items that may need further evaluation by a licensed contractor fall into this category.    

High Importance =  The item, component, or system may need immediate attention, inspector feels need addressing, or may pose a safety concern in or around the home. Some listed concerns may have been considered acceptable for the time of the structures construction, but pose a current risk. The item, component or system is not functioning as intended, or needs further inspection by a qualified license contractor of trade; possible damage to the structure, item, or component may occur. Repairs may be possible to satisfactory condition with out replacement. Repair or replacement may be needed.

COMMENT DEFINITIONS

Listed below is a description of the category definitions used throughout the report to help further understand the severity of an item. Any items listed in the below categories may be based on the inspectors opinion. These definitions are not designed to be considered as an enforceable repair or responsibility of the current homeowner, but designed to inform the current client of the current condition of the property and structure. They may be used in negotiations between real estate professionals.    

SERVICE / REPAIR:   Includes any system, device, appliance or condition that requires action to return it to normal condition or operation. Generally estimated repair costs range between $50.00 and $500.00.  

MAJOR DEFECT:   A list of items that if corrected could likely have estimated repair costs over $500.00. Many of the items should be addressed to avoid more costly repairs in the future. There are still other minor defects listed that are necessary to correct even though repair costs are less. All defects should be repaired.  

SAFETY / HEALTH:   Any defect, component or system that has a possibility of inflicting personal injury or affecting the health and well being of anyone in a family including children or the elderly. Although some of these items may be grandfathered in under current building code due to period of time the home was built therefore not requiring that the change or repair be completed. It is important that you are aware of the items and the current code revisions. All safety defects have a high priority of repair.

HOME WARRANTY RECOMMENDED

GENERAL NOTE:   We recommend that a home warranty be acquired on all home appliances and equipment due to their age, condition or unique circumstances. This is a good investment for homes over five years of age. Equipment must be in good working order on date of warranty contract. Many warranty companies require that HVAC systems be evaluated and serviced by a professional service technician prior to closing to gather a baseline status. You may be able to acquire a home warranty as a condition of sale.

HVAC - ATTENTION RECOMMENDED

GENERAL NOTE:   HVAC systems in certain circumstances require priority attention due to their age and working environment even if no significant key findings are made during the home inspection. Any HVAC system over ten years of age and any system in a humid crawl space over five years of age, should be evaluated by a specialist before closing to include inside evaporator and exterior condenser cleaning.

OVERVIEW
Our inspection of the readily accessible roof system included a visual examination to determine damage or material deterioration. We walk on the roof only when is it safe to do so and is not likely to damage the roof materials. We look for evidence of roof system leaks and damage. We cannot predict when or if a roof might leak in the future.
Plumbing Vents: VENT BOOT

GENERAL NOTE:   Rubber gasket found around plumbing vent stacks above shingles have a typical life expectancy of 7 to 10 years. Visual evaluation of these vent boots should be part of a regular home maintenance program.

Gutters | Downspouts | Drain Lines: SEASONAL CLEANING

GENERAL NOTE:   Gutters in areas where trees exist will require routine seasonal cleaning to remove leaves, pine straw and other debris to facilitate proper drainage and avoid overflowing of gutters. Be prepared to have cleaned at least once a year for best performance.

FYI: MAINTENANCE

GENERAL NOTE:   Maintain the following flashing areas to prevent roof leaks: skylights, vertical sidewalls, gas flues, valleys, vents, chimneys, chimney crickets, and dormers. Monitor periodically for wall and ceiling stains under these areas and take immediate corrective action by calling a roofer to evaluate and repair. Every spring, inspect roof and eaves. Many roofs are dangerous to walk on, so you should inspect from the ground with binoculars. Rubber collars around vent pipes on roof tend to crack open and leak about 7+- years and this is very common during hot summer sun. Generally, all plumbing vents in an attic area are not readily accessible for inspection. Inspection of roof is generally visual from the ground by walking around the perimeter of the home unless stated otherwise.

Skylights not present.

FYI: LIMITATIONS OF ROOFING INSPECTION

As we have discussed and as described in your inspection agreement, this is a visual inspection limited in scope by(but not restricted to) the following conditions:

  • Not all of the underside of the roof sheathing is inspected for evidence of leaks.
  • Evidence of prior leaks may be disguised by interior finishes.
  • Estimates of remaining roof life are approximations only and do not preclude the possibility of leakage. Leakage can develop at any time and may depend on rain intensity, wind direction, ice build up, and other factors.
  • Antennae, chimney/flue interiors which are not readily accessible are not inspected and could require repair.
  • Roof inspection may be limited by access, condition, weather, or other safety concerns.

Please also refer to your inspection agreement for a detailed explanation of the scope of this inspection.

OVERVIEW

Our inspection of the building exterior included a visual examination. Items are examined for defects, excessive wear, and general state of repair. Exterior wood components are randomly probed. We do not probe everywhere. Varying degrees of exterior deterioration could exist in any component. Vegetation, including trees, is examined only to the extent that it is affecting the structure.

Grading: WATER MANAGEMENT PLAN

GENERAL NOTE:   Recommend that a water management plan be adopted for this building. Always focus on outside causes first: re-grade perimeter for a drop of 6 inches per 10 feet, extend gutter downspouts out to 8 feet, ensure building drain works, all window wells and concrete paths against exterior walls are sealed. After eliminating outside causes; seal any and all minor cracks and joints in foundation walls and floors especially the joints at the foot of the foundation walls, seal any holes around the metal snap ties, wrap sweating pipes and ducts to lower moisture, use a dehumidifier when humidity level is high, vent all below grade baths and laundry areas to the exterior. If in doubt as to action to take, consult with a water management specialist to develop a plan optimum for this home.

Grading: GRADE - ACCEPTABLE

GENERAL NOTE:   The grading around the structure is sufficient at this time. Continued maintenance will be necessary to ensure that water flows away from the foundation.

Driveways | Walkways: SEAL MINOR CRACKS

GENERAL NOTE:   The driveway has minor cracks with no differential movement. Seal the cracks to prevent water intrusion.

Deck Attachment To House: FLASHING - ALUMINUM

GENERAL NOTE:   Some exterior wood is now treated with a copper preservative. Wood treated with alkaline copper quaternary cannot be in direct contact with aluminum flashing. The flashing will corrode and leak thus causing premature failure of the connection assembly. Refer to manufacturer installation requirements to ensure that appropriate flashing used on this deck.

Deck Material | Framing: WOOD DECK MAINTENANCE

GENERAL NOTE:   Wood decks, even if constructed of pressure-treated wood framing, require regular maintenance. Wood decks generally require preservative applications regularly. If water does not bead on the deck, treat the deck with products that protect the wood from UV rays and water absorption.

Chimney: CHIMNEY - GENERAL COMMENT

GENERAL NOTE:   The chimney was inspected from the ground and not from top. I did not put a ladder on the chimney chase. We only look up the chimney flue as far as we can if accessible from fireplace. Flues should be cleaned every year before wood burning in the fall. Inspect chimney caps every fall since they can rust which may lead to water penetration. A level 2 chimney sweep inspection recommended at change of ownership, contact at www.csia.org.

Chimney: NFPA CERTIFICATION

GENERAL NOTE:   The NFPA (National Fire Protection Association) recommends a Level II examination of a chimney flue whenever a real estate property changes ownership. This examination includes a complete review of all accessible portions of the fireplace and chimney from the top to the bottom, including both the interior and exterior portions. Video scanning equipment or other means shall be used as necessary to observe these areas.

FYI: LIMITATIONS OF EXTERIOR INSPECTION

As we have discussed and as described in your inspection agreement, this is a visual inspection limited in scope by(but not restricted to) the following conditions:

  • A representative sample of exterior components was inspected rather than every occurrence of components.
  • The inspection does not include an assessment of geological, geotechnical, or hydrological conditions, or environmental hazards.
  • Screening, shutters, awnings, or similar seasonal accessories, fences, recreational facilities (pools, hot tubs, etc.), outbuildings, seawalls, breakwalls, docks, erosion control and earth stabilization measures are not inspected unless specifically agreed upon and documented in this report.

Please also refer to your inspection agreement for a detailed explanation of the scope of this inspection.

OVERVIEW

Our inspection of the structure included a visual examination of the exposed, readily accessible portions of the structure. These items were examined for visible defects, excessive wear, and general condition. Many structural components are inaccessible because they are buried below grade or are behind finished surfaces. Therefore, much of the inspection was performed by looking for visible symptoms of movement, damage and deterioration. Where there are no symptoms, conditions requiring further review or repair may go undetected and identification is not possible without destructive testing. We make no representations as to the internal conditions or stability of soils, concrete footings and foundations, except as exhibited by their performance. We cannot predict when or if foundations might leak in the future. 

Foundation Walls: TERMITE TREATMENT HOLES

GENERAL NOTE:   Holes in concrete often from termite treatment procedures in the past. Seek disclosure and verify if currently under bond.

Basement - Comments: BASEMENT REVIEW

GENERAL NOTE:   A solid effort is made to visually inspect all readily accessible areas of basement to determine if any water penetration is present during inspection. Generally, if it has not rained in the past 3-4 days water penetration may not be very evident. On this particular day, I noted no active water penetration in basement area during my walk around visual inspection. No insulation was removed from walls to inspect for water penetration or termites and IR scan detected no moisture present. Discuss with seller if you have issues with basement moisture or musty odors. 

Post | Pier | Column not present.

FYI: LIMITATIONS OF STRUCTURE INSPECTION

As we have discussed and as described in your inspection agreement, this is a visual inspection limited in scope by(but not restricted to) the following conditions:

  • Structural components concealed behind finished surfaces could not be inspected.
  • Only a representative sampling of visible structural components were inspected.
  • Furniture and/or storage can restrict access to some structural components.
  • Engineering or architectural services such as calculation of structural capacities, adequacy, or integrity are not part of a home inspection.

Please also refer to your inspection agreement for a detailed explanation of the scope of this inspection.

OVERVIEW

Our inspection of the interior included a visual examination for structural and safety deficiencies and the interior of the home was scanned with an infrared camera. When systems are functional and prior to conducting the scan, the HVAC system(s) are operated to increase the temperature differential between the interior and exterior of the home. This aids in the detection of anomalies such as water intrusion, missing insulation, etc. Infrared thermal imaging conducted at the time of the inspection did not detect any significant defects unless otherwise detailed further on in the report. Also note that only a representative sample of accessible components was inspected.

INTERIOR REVIEW

GENERAL NOTE:   Sample number of windows and doors were operated. Access to some may have been blocked by blinds, curtains, furniture, storage, personal items, etc. For safety reasons, all should operate freely to allow egress during emergencies. If you have small children, we highly recommend the installation of window guards/window stops in children's rooms. Sample number of doors tested. Some doors may have been blocked shut or blocked open, etc. All drywall may have minor cosmetic issues. Buyer should walk the home and view all walls and ceilings for water stains and past repairs. Buyer is asked to discuss any major concerns with seller and buyer's agent. Cosmetic cracks in drywall seams or corner bead are common from minor settling or expansion and contraction of corner bead and not typically considered as a sign of structural issues. No attempt is made to inspect for pests or rodents.

Walls | Ceilings: CEILING REPAIRS

GENERAL NOTE:   Touch ups and repairs noted in ceiling(s) during inspection. Seller to disclose the source of problem, including extent of repairs made. This information may be needed for buyer's future reference. Usually requires full area painting to reduce obvious conditions. 

Smoke Detectors | Safety: TEST DETECTORS

GENERAL NOTE:   Important to test smoke detectors routinely and should be located on each level and within area of bedrooms. Photo electric types are less prone to nuisance sounding and more reliable for smoldering smoke developing fires. Consider having CO detectors installed for added safety.

Ceiling Fan | Whole House Fan: CEILING FAN REMOTES

GENERAL NOTE:   The ceiling fan(s) are operated by remote control device. Have seller provide devices for proper operation.

FYI: LIMITATIONS OF INTERIOR INSPECTION

As we have discussed and as described in your inspection agreement, this is a visual inspection limited in scope by(but not restricted to) the following conditions:

  • Furniture, storage, appliances and/or wall hangings are not moved to permit inspection and may block defects.
  • Carpeting, window treatments, central vacuum systems, household appliances, recreational facilities, paint, wallpaper, and other finish treatments are not inspected.

Please also refer to your inspection agreement for a detailed explanation of the scope of this inspection.

OVERVIEW
Our inspection of the bathrooms included a visual examination to determine if there were any active leaks, water damage, deterioration to floors and walls, proper function of components, excessive or unusual wear and general state of repair. Bathroom fixtures are run simultaneously to check for adequate water pressure and volume. Unusual bath features like steam generators or saunas are not inspected unless specifically discussed in this report. 
BATHROOM REVIEW

GENERAL NOTE:   Ran water for about 5 minutes to test shower units and monitored for obvious leaks. Filled ceramic tile showers with 1 inch of standing water. This is not a fool-proof test since it does not simulate the weight of one to two people in shower. Partially filled tubs about one-third full, drained and monitored for obvious leaks. Ran hot and cold water at faucets and monitored for obvious leaks-did not fill sinks. Flushed and monitored toilets for one fill. New ultra-low flow toilets will on occasion need to be flushed more than once. Tested bath exhaust fans - can not always determine if piping actually goes to exterior of home. Jetted tub, if present is filled to 1 inch over jets and run for 5 minutes and monitored for leaks around tub, under tub and in ceiling below.

Sinks: OVERFLOW NOT TESTED

GENERAL NOTE:   The inspector does not fill sinks, bathtubs, or showers to test function of overflow drain.

Toilets: TANK TREATMENTS

GENERAL NOTE:   Chemical treatments installed in toilet tanks are often responsible for flapper and other component failures in units. Do not encourage having these products used and would recommend having removed if possible.

Bathtubs: OVERFLOW NOT TESTED

GENERAL NOTE:   The inspector does not fill sinks, bathtubs, or showers to test function of overflow drain.

Tub | Shower Walls | Surrounds: CAULK - ALL

GENERAL NOTE:   Caulking is necessary in the tub to prevent moisture intrusion: e.g. at the corner intersections, where the wall meets the floor, where the faucet protrudes from the wall, and at the hand controls. Recommend all necessary areas be sealed.

Jetted Tub: CLEAN REGULARLY

SAFETY / HEALTH:   Water can remain in piping systems, regardless of manufacturer claims. Clean and maintain a whirlpool tub regularly to prevent bacterial infections. Periodically flush with a cleaning solution specifically formulated to remove bath residue.

Our inspection of the kitchen included a visual examination of the readily accessible components to determine defects, excessive wear, and general state of repair. We tested basic, major built-in appliances using normal operating controls. Accuracy and/or function of clocks, timers, temperature controls and self cleaning functions on ovens is beyond the scope of our testing procedure. Refrigerators or other appliances were not tested or inspected unless specifically noted. 
KITCHEN REVIEW

GENERAL NOTE:   Dishwasher filled and ran for one cycle , monitored for heating and water discharge. Range operated on all eyes on cook top and oven on basic settings- no test of timing mechanisms. Operated disposal if present with running water for less than one minute. Operated microwave, if present, on one basic heating setting - no test of timing mechanisms. Ran water in sink for both drains(did not fill sink basin) Generally there is excessive storage under sink limiting inspection. Note that refrigerators are not inspected for proper operation.

Laundry fixtures are run  to check for adequate water pressure and volume. Washers and dryers are not inspected unless specifically discussed in this report. 
LAUNDRY REVIEW

GENERAL NOTE:   Washer & dryer if present, were not tested. Vent was not tested. We do not turn on washer water faucets without hoses for testing since they can spray out on to walls. Washer drain was not tested. The only effective way to test the washer drain is to run a full washer cycle and discharge the water to the drain. We do not test washers.

OVERVIEW
Our inspection of the readily accessible areas of the attic included a visual examination to determine any signs of defects, excessive wear, and general state of repair. When low clearance, framing design or obstructions, deep insulation and mechanical components prohibit walking safely in an unfinished attic, inspection is conducted from the available service platforms or access openings only.
Attic Insulation: NO CERTIFICATE

GENERAL NOTE:   Insulation certificate not found in attic as required that states the minimum thickness for the particular blown insulation[usually a 10 to 12 inch minimum], lower level thickness found to be very thin in remote areas of attic.  Have insulation added at thin and missing areas to achieve R-30 minimum required to reduce energy loss.

FYI: LIMITATIONS OF ATTIC INSPECTION

As we have discussed and as described in your inspection agreement, this is a visual inspection limited in scope by(but not restricted to) the following condition

  • Insulation/ventilation type and levels in concealed areas are not inspected. Insulation and vapor barriers are not disturbed and no destructive tests(such as cutting openings in walls to look for insulation) are performed.
  • Potentially hazardous materials such as Asbestos and Urea Formaldehyde Foam Insulation(UFFI) cannot be positively identified without a detailed inspection and laboratory analysis. This is beyond the scope of the inspection.
  • An analysis of indoor air quality is not part of our inspection unless explicitly contracted for and discussed in this or a separate report.
  • Any estimates of insulation R values or depths are rough average values.
  • Power attic ventilation fans cannot be tested unless outdoor temperature(and therefore attic temperature) are high enough to initiate the thermostat and run the fan.

Please also refer to your inspection agreement for a detailed explanation of the scope of this inspection.

OVERVIEW

Our inspection of the heating and cooling system included a visual examination of the system's major components to determine defects, excessive wear, and general state of repair. Weather permitting, our inspection of a heating or cooling system includes activating it via the thermostat and checking for appropriate temperature response. Our inspection does not include disassembly of the furnace; therefore heat exchangers are not included in the scope of this inspection. Ceiling fans are not typically inspected as they are not within the scope of the inspection.

Heating System: FUNACE | AIR HANDLER

GENERAL NOTE:   The furnace/air handler(s) was inspected without deficiencies unless mentioned elsewhere in the report.

OVERVIEW
Our inspection of the electrical system included a visual examination of readily accessible components including a random sampling of electrical devices to determine adverse conditions and improper wiring methods, grounding, bonding and overcurrent protection. Performing voltage tests, load calculations or determining the adequacy of the electrical system for future usage is outside the scope of this inspection. Telephone, video, audio, security system, landscape lighting, and other low voltage wiring was not included in this inspection unless specifically noted.   
Service Entrance: LOAD CONTROLLER
GENERAL NOTE:  This property is equipped with a load controller. Load controllers prevent larger amperage appliances (typically air conditioners, dryers, and water heaters) from being supplied power during peak demand times. This equipment is controlled by the utility company and is beyond the scope of our inspection.
Panel Interior: MAIN | SUB PANEL

GENERAL NOTE:   The main/sub electrical panel(s) interior was inspected without deficiencies unless mentioned elsewhere in the report.

GFCI | AFCI Devices: GFCI INFO

GENERAL NOTE:   Test GFCI devices regularly to ensure proper working order; most GFCI manufacturers recommend testing monthly. If any GFCI device does not test or reset properly, it should be  replaced. GFCI devices monitor electrical current through a circuit; if electrical current is not balanced, there is a current leakage, also referre to as a "ground fault". GFCl devices sense current leakages as small as .0005 amps. If the GFCI device senses a ground fault, the GFCI device will terminate the current in approximately 1/40 of a second, fast enough to prevent personal injury. To test GFCI devices, push the "Test" button, which should pop the "Reset" button and terminate power. To restore power, push the "Reset" button. To test GFCI circuit breakers in electrical panels, push the "Test" button; the circuit breaker should switch off and terminate power to the circuit. To restore power, switch the circuit breaker off and then on.

GFCI | AFCI Devices: AFCI - GENERAL NOTE

GENERAL NOTE:   In accordance to Underwriters Laboratories Standards, the AFCI is intended to provide protection of branch circuits in the case of arcing faults.  In case of arcing fault, this breaker will trip stopping the flow of electricity, and suppressing the possibility of fire ignition due to electrical arcing. 

When tripping occurs perform the following steps:
1.  Reset the device
2.  If trips continue, a hazardous condition may exist on the circuit, and a licensed electrician should check the circuit.

The AFCI breaker should be tested monthly to insure protection against electrical arcing faults.  Test the breaker by pressing the 'test' button on the breaker. If the AFCI does not trip when tested, arc fault protection may have been lost.  Refer to a licensed electrician for servicing.

GFCI | AFCI Devices: AFCI NOT TESTED

GENERAL NOTE:   AFCI devices are for electrical safety protection to interrupt power to a circuit if electrical arcing occurs. We do not test AFCls because receptacles often are connected to clocks, PCs or other electronic equipment.

Switches: LANDSCAPE LIGHTING

GENERAL NOTE:   The property is equipped with low voltage lighting for landscaping or other areas. Low voltage lighting systems frequently are controlled by timers or photo-sensors and are outside the scope of a standard home inspection.

FYI: SECURITY SYSTEM

GENERAL NOTE:   The security system is beyond the scope of this inspection, therefore it was not inspected,

Subpanel not present.

FYI: LIMITATIONS OF ELECTRICAL INSPECTION

As we have discussed and as described in your inspection agreement, this is a visual inspection limited in scope by(but not restricted to) the following conditions:

  • Electrical components concealed behind finished surfaces are not inspected.
  • Only a representative sampling of outlets and light fixtures were tested.
  • The inspection does not include remote control devices, alarm systems and components, low voltage wiring, systems, and components, ancillary wiring, systems, and other components which are not part of the primary electrical power distribution system.

Please also refer to your inspection agreement for a detailed explanation of the scope of this inspection.

14.3.1 - Exterior Hose Faucets

BACK FLOW DEVICE

SAFETY / HEALTH:   The hose bibb would benefit from the addition of a backflow preventer or vacuum breaker. Vacuum breakers are installed on exterior hose bibbs and prevent water within a garden hose from entering back into the municipal water supply system. Recommend installing vacuum breakers at all exterior hose bibbs. Have qualified contractor repair as needed.
