7.1.2 - Heating Equipment

Needs Servicing/Cleaning

Furnace should be cleaned and serviced. The upstairs HVAC unit has standing water in the condensate overflow pan. This can lead to a leak. I would also recommend installing an automatic cut off switch to turn the unit off in the event the condensate line stopped up again.

9.7.1 - Windows

Soft window sill

The window sill in the upstairs southeast bedroom is soft. It has experienced moisture intrusion at some point in the past. The sealant around this window appeared  to be intact and in good condition. There was a small area of shingles above this area that have been replaced. So this damage is most likely from the apparent past leak. There is no evidence of a current leak and I did not see any other damage in this area.

11.3.1 - Ventilation

Suggested Ridge Vent Replacement

The ridge vent is allowing the drywall in the inside peak of the roof to absorb some moisture. The drywall in the peak is slightly discolored from being so close to exterior moisture and humidity. I would recommend removing the existing ridge vent and replacing it with A different type of ridge vent (Foam/rubber,versa-vent,etc.) . This would help prevent any further absorption of moisture from the outside. Then primer and paint would restore the inside. 

The replacement of the ridge vent and the shingles over it,  is just a suggestion, and should take a professional roofer about two hours to complete. The materials for this project should cost about $250.00
