PROPERTY INSPECTION REPORT

1 - Inspection Details

Information / Overview

Home Inspection Report:

The home inspection performed is a limited visual inspection to identify systems and components in need of immediate repair. The inspection will conform to the Standards of Practice of the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI) and will include the following systems: roof, structure, electrical, interior, plumbing, heating and cooling, exterior siding and trim, doors and windows, chimneys and fireplaces, driveways, walkways and site grading. The evaluation will be based on observations that are primarily visual and non-invasive. The inspection and report are not intended to be technically exhaustive. This written report is a summary of observations and unbiased opinions and is based on the experience of the inspector.

Inspection Categories:

1) Maintenance Item - These are repairs that, in the opinion of the inspector, are regular maintenance items typical for all homes. Repair to these items is not urgent, but should be performed soon.

2) Repair Recommendation - The item, component or unit was inspected/tested, and is not functioning as intended. A qualified specialist needs to repair or replace.

3) Further Evaluation Recommended - The item, component or unit needed to be further evaluated by a professional and was not fully inspected or has concerns that need further review by a specialist.

Scope and Terms of Inspection:

This confidential report is furnished for the use of the client only. It is not intended to be relied upon for any purpose by any other party not named on the report and Inspection Agreement. This inspection was performed in accordance with and under the terms of a Home Inspection Agreement. The agreement was signed and agreed upon before the preparation of this report and a signed copy of the agreement is available upon request. JOMO Inspector PRO conducts all inspections according to the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI) Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics.

Limitations:

Limitations exist in any home inspection. The inspector cannot see behind walls or behind hidden areas in the home. The belongings of the current occupant of the home are not moved to view areas underneath or behind such belongings. Additionally, the inspection is not a test for hazardous materials, such as asbestos, lead paint, mold, or other environmental hazards. If the inspector observes materials which the inspector believes may contain hazardous materials, the Inspector will recommend further testing and evaluation. Any comments, notes or recommendations made by the inspector are informational only, and Client understands that only proper hazardous testing can determine whether any actual hazardous materials are present. Nothing herein shall be construed to require the inspector to observe or to warn Client as to potential hazardous materials. Any investigation concerning the existence or possible existence of potentially hazardous materials in any form is beyond the scope of the inspection services offered by JOMO Inspector PRO.

About Thermal Imaging:

Note: A Thermal Imaging camera may be used as a means of evaluating certain suspect issues or systems. Any anomalies found are always verified by other means such as a moisture meter. Moisture must be present for infrared thermography to locate its existence. During dry times a leak may still be present, but undetectable if materials have no moisture present. Thermal Imaging is not X-ray vision and cannot see through walls or detect mold.

2.1.1 - Misc. Concerns / Comments

Microbial Like Growths
South Basement

Microbial like growths were found at one or more locations. It is beyond the scope of this inspection to identify what substance or organism these stains are. However, such staining is normally caused by excessively moist conditions caused by plumbing or building envelope leaks and/or substandard ventilation. These conducive conditions should be corrected before making any attempts to remove or correct the staining.

For evaluation and possible mitigation, consult with a qualified industrial hygienist or mold/moisture mitigation specialist.

OBSERVATIONS AND RECOMMENDATIONS:

The following items were Inspected and Observed, with any Recommended Actions noted:

Exterior Inspection Overview:

A visual inspection of the exterior surfaces was performed around the home to include the exterior surface material, soffit/fascia surfaces, doors and windows, and other exterior surface areas.

  • The exterior wall covering, trim, and flashing were visually inspected for concerns related to installation, paint/stain condition, damage and general maintenance issues.
  • The entry doors to the home were tested and inspected by operating the doors, checking the lock and latch, inspecting the weather-stripping, inspecting any screens present and checking for any physical damage.
  • The exterior of the windows were visually inspected for signs of cracked glass, damaged screens, caulking around edges and seams, paint or finish deterioration, and general concerns.
  • The driveway and exterior concrete surfaces around the home were walked and inspected for surface deterioration, trip hazards, poor slope or drainage and any general areas of concern.
  • The surface grading and drainage was inspected to determine if areas exist that will adversely affect the home.
General Maintenance Recommendations:

The outside of the home should be routinely checked. Exteriors need regular maintenance to stay sealed against the weather. There can be hidden damage when the exterior is not sealed or is poorly finished, damaged or decayed. Heavy vegetation should be kept trimmed since it can cause or hide damage.

3.8.1 - Grading

Reverse Perimeter Slope - Repair
Southeast Exterior

The soil or grading sloped down towards building perimeters in one or more areas. This can result in water accumulating around building foundations or underneath buildings. It can be a conducive condition for wood-destroying organisms. Recommend grading soil so it slopes down and away from buildings with a slope of at least 1 inch per horizontal foot for at least 6 feet out from buildings.

3.8.2 - Grading

Soil in Contact with Wood
Southeast Exterior

Soil was in contact with or less than 6 inches from siding, trim, or structural wood. This is a conducive condition for wood-destroying organisms. Recommend grading or removing soil as necessary to maintain a 6-inch clearance. If not possible, then recommend replacing untreated wood with pressure-treated wood. Note that damage from fungal rot and/or insects may be found when soil is removed, and repairs may be necessary.
