Weep holes (openings in the mortar joints to allow moisture to seep out) were missing at the structure's brick veneer walls. Weep holes should be placed every 33 inches on center at the base of the wall as well as over the windows and doors where the brick veneer is support by lintels. No indication of moisture damage was noted on the inside structure. It might do more harm than good to try and create these as this point in time. We recommend monitoring the areas.

3.5.1 - Windows

Deteriorated caulk
All Around House

The caulk around the exterior windows was deteriorated. We recommend properly sealing. Exterior caulking is the first energy efficient measures to install. The purpose of exterior caulking is to minimize air flow and moisture through cracks, seams, utility penetrations and openings. Controlling air infiltration is one of the most cost effective measures in modern construction practices, a home that is not sealed will be uncomfortable due to drafts and will use about 30% more heating and cooling energy than a relatively air-tight home. In addition, good caulking and sealing will reduce dust and dirt in the home and prevent damage to structural elements.

3.6.1 - Vegetation, Grading, Drainage & Retaining Walls

Grading Improvement Needed
North Wall

The home did not have gutter all around the house causing trenching.  The grading in these areas should be improved to promote the flow of storm water away from the house. This can usually be accomplished by the addition/removal of top soil. The ground should slope away from the structure at a rate of six inches in the first ten feet.

I recommend flushing & servicing your water heater tank annually for optimal performance. Water temperature should be set to at least 120 degrees F to kill microbes and no higher than 130 degrees F to prevent scalding. 

Here is a nice maintenance guide from Lowe's to help. 

Water Supply, Distribution Systems & Fixtures: Exterior Faucet Not Fully Tested

The south wall faucet had a multi port installed that was not working properly, and the west wall had one with a cutoff hose installed.  I was unable to remove them by hand during the inspection to test.

Hot Water, Controls, Flues & Vents: Old Unit
Water heaters have a typical life expectancy of 7 to 12 years. The water heater was past its useful life. One cannot predict with certainty when replacement will become necessary. It might be wise to budget for replacement.

I. The inspector shall inspect: A. the main water supply shut-off valve; B. the main fuel supply shut-off valve; C. the water heating equipment, including the energy source, venting connections, temperature/pressure-relief (TPR) valves, Watts 210 valves, and seismic bracing; D. interior water supply, including all fixtures and faucets, by running the water; E. all toilets for proper operation by flushing; F. all sinks, tubs and showers for functional drainage; G. the drain, waste and vent system; and H. drainage sump pumps with accessible floats. II. The inspector shall describe: A. whether the water supply is public or private based upon observed evidence; B. the location of the main water supply shut-off valve; C. the location of the main fuel supply shut-off valve; D. the location of any observed fuel-storage system; and E. the capacity of the water heating equipment, if labeled. III. The inspector shall report as in need of correction: A. deficiencies in the water supply by viewing the functional flow in two fixtures operated simultaneously; B. deficiencies in the installation of hot and cold water faucets; C. mechanical drain stops that were missing or did not operate if installed in sinks, lavatories and tubs; and D. toilets that were damaged, had loose connections to the floor, were leaking, or had tank components that did not operate. IV. The inspector is not required to: A. light or ignite pilot flames. B. measure the capacity, temperature, age, life expectancy or adequacy of the water heater. C. inspect the interior of flues or chimneys, combustion air systems, water softener or filtering systems, well pumps or tanks, safety or shut-off valves, floor drains, lawn sprinkler systems, or fire sprinkler systems. D. determine the exact flow rate, volume, pressure, temperature or adequacy of the water supply. E. determine the water quality, potability or reliability of the water supply or source. F. open sealed plumbing access panels. G. inspect clothes washing machines or their connections. H. operate any valve. I. test shower pans, tub and shower surrounds or enclosures for leakage or functional overflow protection. J. evaluate the compliance with conservation, energy or building standards, or the proper design or sizing of any water, waste or venting components, fixtures or piping. K. determine the effectiveness of anti-siphon, backflow prevention or drain-stop devices. L. determine whether there are sufficient cleanouts for effective cleaning of drains. M. evaluate fuel storage tanks or supply systems. N. inspect wastewater treatment systems. O. inspect water treatment systems or water filters. P. inspect water storage tanks, pressure pumps, or bladder tanks. Q. evaluate wait time to obtain hot water at fixtures, or perform testing of any kind to water heater elements. R. evaluate or determine the adequacy of combustion air. S. test, operate, open or close: safety controls, manual stop valves, temperature/pressure-relief valves, control valves, or check valves. T. examine ancillary or auxiliary systems or components, such as, but not limited to, those related to solar water heating and hot water circulation. U. determine the existence or condition of polybutylene plumbing. V. inspect or test for gas or fuel leaks, or indications thereof.

The dishwasher drain line (discharge hose) did not have an air gap or a high loop. The dishwasher drain line usually attaches to the garbage disposal. The drain line should either arch above the level of the sink drain, have an anti-siphon valve, or have a vacuum break. This keeps debris in the disposal from siphoning back to the clean dishes. We recommend the drain line be elevated or a back flow device installed.
