Inspection Method
2nd Story Windows, Quadcopter, Ground

We observe the roof using safe observation methods. When roof surfaces appear deteriorated, slippery, or wet, we may not walk the roof surface. Binoculars, quadcopter, cameras with zoom lenses may be used if we do not walk the roof surface. 

Coverings: Material
Asphalt, Rubber Membrane

Roof covering appeared in good overall condition at the time of inspection. Any defects or maintenance notes will be listed in the Summary. Photos document condition at the time of inspection. 

Roof Drainage Systems: Gutter Material
Aluminum, Gutter Guards

Recommend cleaning the gutter system regularly to prevent clogging and allowing rain runoff to drain where intended away from the foundation. Clogged gutters could cause damage to roof, fascia, and soffit over time if rain runoff does not go down the downspouts and away.  Recommend sealing any leaking seams or corners. Monitor to assure gutters stay attached especially if debris, ice, or snow builds up in them. Any defects or maintenance notes will be listed in the Summary. Photos document condition at the time of inspection.

II. The inspector shall describe: A. the type of roof-covering materials. III. The inspector shall report as in need of correction: A. observed indications of active roof leaks. IV. The inspector is not required to: A. walk on any roof surface. B. predict the service life expectancy. C. inspect underground downspout diverter drainage pipes. D. remove snow, ice, debris or other conditions that prohibit the observation of the roof surfaces. E. move insulation. F. inspect antennae, satellite dishes, lightning arresters, de-icing equipment, or similar attachments. G. walk on any roof areas that appear, in the inspectors opinion, to be unsafe.

Insulation: Attic Insulation Type
Fiberglass, Blown

Common building practices change over time. The amount and style of insulation installed in the home may have met the requirements during the time of construction. Over time insulation can settle or become compressed and may require additional insulation for added efficiency. Any defects or maintenance notes will be listed in the Summary. Photos document condition at the time of inspection. 

Exhaust Systems: Exhaust Fans

Modern building practices recommend Bathroom Exhaust Fans to be vented to the exterior of the home. Many homes were built prior to the requirement of venting these fans to the exterior and may still discharge into the attic space. Bathroom vents discharging into attic areas or basements/crawl spaces with not enough ventilation may cause elevated moisture levels resulting in organic growth in attic spaces or basement areas. 

Any defects, recommendations,  or maintenance notes will be listed in the Summary. Photos document condition at the time 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. E. identify the composition or R-value of insulation material. F. activate thermostatically operated fans. G. determine the types of materials used in insulation or wrapping of pipes, ducts, jackets, boilers or wiring. H. determine the adequacy of ventilation.
