InspecUs Inspections strives to perform all inspections in substantial compliance with the Standards of Practice as set forth by the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors. As such, we inspect the readily accessible, visually observable, installed systems and components of the home. This inspection is not technically exhaustive.

 InspecUs, Partner of InspectR always recommends that after you have reviewed this report and disclosure documentation from all the parties: that you consider additional follow up by other Certified Professionals Such as Carpenters, electricians, Plumbers, Roofers, HVAC installers, WETT installers,  WETT installers Chimney sweeps, Sewer line inspectors, Well and or Septic system inspectors or even an engineer if necessary. You may also want to contact your lender and your insurance provider to inquire about any specific inspections or documentation they require. The more information you have up front the better equipped you are to make a sound decision going forward.

MINOR CONCERN

  • Maintenance items, DIY items, or recommended upgrades will fall into this category. These concerns will ultimately lead to Moderate Concerns and Significant Concerns if left neglected for extended periods of time. These concerns are usually straightforward to remedy.

MODERATE CONCERN

  • Most items will fall into this category. Concerns that inevitably lead to, or directly cause (if not addressed in a timely manner) adverse impact on the value of the home, or unreasonable risk (Unsafe) to people or property. These concerns may require further evaluation or may be more complicated to remedy.

SIGNIFICANT CONCERN

  • A specific issue with a system or component of a residential property that may have a significant, adverse impact on the value of the property, or that poses an unreasonable risk to people or property. These concerns may be imminent, difficult or expensive to remedy.

Weather

Due to weather at the time of the inspection we were not able to walk the roof. Roof was looked at from the eves and from the ground with binoculars.

Roof Coverings: Snow Covered

The roof was covered with snow so we were not able to view the roof covering material and condition.  We encourage you to have a roofer take a look at it when the snow melts.  

Roof Coverings: Wet roofs hide flaws

The roof was wet. We inspected it from the eaves and from the ground with binoculars. It is more difficult to find flaws on wet roofs. We just want you to know we did the best we could in the conditions we worked in. 

I. The inspector shall inspect from ground level or the eaves: A. the roof-covering materials; B. the gutters; C. the downspouts; D. the vents, flashing, skylights, chimney, and other roof penetrations; and E. the general structure of the roof from the readily accessible panels, doors or stairs.

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. H. walk on any roof areas if doing so might, in the inspector's opinion, cause damage. I. perform a water test. J. warrant or certify the roof. K. confirm proper fastening or installation of any roof-covering material.
