General Information: Overview

A home inspection is not a pass or fail type of inspection. It is a visual only evaluation of the conditions of the systems and accessible components of the home designed to identify areas of concern within specific systems or components defined by the Florida Association of Building Inspectors Standards of Practice, that are both observed and deemed material by the inspector at the exact date and time of inspection. Conditions can and will change after the inspection over time. Future conditions or component failure can not be foreseen or reported on. Components that are not readily accessible can not be inspected. Issues that are considered as cosmetic are not addressed in this report. (Holes, stains, scratches, unevenness, missing trim, paint and finish flaws or odors). It is not the intent of this report to make the house new again. Any and all recommendations for repair, replacement, evaluation, and maintenance issues found, should be evaluated by the appropriate trades contractors within the clients inspection contingency window or prior to closing, which is contract applicable, in order to obtain proper dollar amount estimates on the cost of said repairs and also because these evaluations could uncover more potential issues than able to be noted from a purely visual inspection of the property. This inspection will not reveal every concern or issue that exists, but only those material defects that were observable on the day of the inspection. This inspection is intended to assist in evaluation of the overall condition of the dwelling only. This inspection is not a prediction of future conditions and conditions with the property are subject to change the moment we leave the premises. Please note the inspection limitations PDF document appended to the report download page is an appended legal document to this report and should be read in addition to this report.



General Information: What Really Matters in a Home Inspection

Congratulations on buying your new home!

The process can be stressful. A home inspection is supposed to give you peace of mind, but often has the opposite effect. You will be asked to absorb a lot of information in a short time. this often includes a written report, checklist, photographs, environmental report, and what the inspector himself says during the inspection. All this combined with the seller's disclosure and what you notice yourself makes the experience even more overwhelming. What should you do?

Relax. Most of your inspection will be maintenance recommendations, life expediencies, and minor imperfections. These are nice to know about. What will really matter will fall into four categories:

1. Major Defects- An example of this would be significant structural failure.

2. Things that may lead to major defects- Things like a small leak coming from a piece of roof flashing, for example.

3. Things that may hinder your ability to finance the purchase of your home- Structural damage caused by termite infestation, for example.

4. Safety issues such as a lack of GFCI protection.

Anything in these categories should be corrected. Often a serious problem can be corrected rather inexpensively, (especially items in categories 2 and 4).

Most sellers are honest and are often surprised to learn of such defects uncovered during an inspection. Realize that sellers are under no obligation to repair everything mentioned in the report. No home is perfect.

Keep things in perspective. Don't kill your deal over things that don't matter.It is inappropriate to demand that a seller address deferred maintenance, conditions listed on the seller's disclosure, or nit picky items.

Vegetation Contact Frame House

Vegetation such as trees, shrubs and/or vines was in contact with or close to the building exterior. Vegetation can serve as a pathway for wood-destroying insects and can retain moisture against the exterior after it rains. This is a conducive condition for wood-destroying organisms. Recommend pruning, moving or removing vegetation as necessary to maintain at least 6 inches of space between it and the building exterior. A 1-foot clearance is better.

Access: Partially Traversed

The attic was only able to be partially traversed due to height, framing configuration, insulation levels, ductwork, or a combination of any of the afore-mentioned. If this is an older home, older homes in Florida have notoriously low sloped pitches with very limited space to traverse. The inspector makes every attempt to traverse the entire attic, except in instances where the inspector feels personal harm or and damage to HVAC components/ceiling surfaces may occur.

5.3.1 - Sheathing

Stains

One or more dry stains were observed in the attic sheathing. Staining is typically indicative of active or past roofing leaks. A stained area may test dry during an inspection, but may still be an active leak. The only definitive way to determine if a roof is watertight is to leak test the area in question, which is beyond the scope of an inspection. Please note that many areas in the attic may not be reachable for testing due to location in tight spaces or unsafe areas. Client should either monitor moving forward and checking during periods of active heavy rain, or consult with a licensed roofing contractor for evaluation (additional costs may be incurred). In the absence of pouring rain, the inspector does not guarantee the water-tightness of the roof, nor guarantee the absence of leaks.

5.5.1 - Attic Insulation

Substandard

As of 2014, building standards for new construction and adding additional attic insulation were raised to a minimum of R38. The current ceiling insulation installed in the attic was substandard and appeared to have an R rating that's less than the current R38 requirement is. Recommend that a qualified insulation contractor evaluate to see if additional insulation can be installed and the associated cost to do so as client deems necessary for their energy needs.

Roofing permit(s) were found online for the listed noted dates. We recommend following up with the appropriate city/county building department to ensure this is the actual main roof age and any other information you, the client, deem necessary. If nopermit date was found, recommend any sellers disclosures/documentation regarding the roof be obtained. Please note the inspector does not take responsibility for determining the roof's exact age, we do not issue a 'pass or fail' grade on a roof, nor do we determine if a roofing contractor determines its necessity or replacement. We report only its visible physical condition at the time of inspection to you, the client. Any concerns over the age of the roof and its longevity should be directed to a state licensed roofing contractor.

Coverings: Roof Life Expectancy Chart

The following are the typically accepted useful lifespans for various roofing types in Florida. Please note this is just a general guideline and many factors such as attic ventilation, direction the house faces, tree cover/shade, material quality, etc will factor in.

3 Tab Shingle: 15-18 years

Dimensional Shingle 18-25 years

Asphalt Membrane: 15 years

TPO: 20 years

Tile: 30 years

Metal Roofs: 30+ years

Built Up Tar and Gravel: 20 years


Coverings: Roof Views

This inspection is not a guarantee that a roof leak will not happen in the future. Roof leak. Even a roof that appears to be in good, functional condition may leak under certain circumstances.We will not take responsibility for a roof leak that happens in the future. This is not a warranty or guarantee of the roof system. 

Coverings: Roofing

We are not professional roofers. Feel free to hire one prior to closing.

We do our best to inspect roof system within the time allotted. We inspect the roof covering drainage systems, the flashings, the skylights, chimneys, and roof penetrations. We are not required to inspect antennae, interiors of flues or chimneys which are not readily accessible, , and other installed accessories. This is not an exhaustive inspection of every installation detail of the roof system according to the manufacturer's specifications or construction codes.

It is virtually impossible to detect a leak as it is occurring or by specific water tests which are beyond the scope of this inspection. We recommend that you ask the sellers to disclose information about the roof and that you include comprehensive roof coverage in your home insurance policy. 

Shingles: Representative Shingle Condition

Good. There are mounts for a solar pool heater. These penetrations may lead to a leak in the future. Recommend monitoring.

Coverings: Drone Disclaimer

Due to roof configuration (height, slope, material, conditions), this roof was inspected via a remote helicopter drone. Please note that this form of inspecting, while still visual, does not permit us a physical real view of the roof surface. Issues such as nail pops on shingles, loose self strips on shingles, loose/not adhered/screwed tiles on tile roofs, and other up close defects may not be observable from the air. The client is urged to take these limitations into account when reviewing this report. A specialist with commercial height ladder equipment,high lift capabilities, or proper safety equipment may be needed to be brought in, as client deems necessary.

The outdoor air temperature was below 65 degrees Fahrenheit during the inspection. Air conditioning systems can be damaged if operated during such low temperatures. It is also impossible to determine if the HVAC system is cooling properly as even if no or low refrigerant is in the system, the air will still register at ambient exterior temperature. Client should be aware of this limitation when inspecting in cooler temperatures.
