Condition Summary
Good
The general condition of this house was good. This is an older home that has been greatly updated and has some of the issues typical of such a project. The roof appears to predate the remodel and was poorly installed. It should last for a few years, but it is impossible to predict future conditions. Both the interior and exterior have been extensively updated in a workmanlike manner and should require little maintenance for years to come. As is typical for houses of this vintage, the crawlspace is rough, but the stone foundation shows little signs of crumbling. The attic could use insulation and ventilation. Overall, this is a fine little house that is an excellent value with fine finishes.
Scope Of Work

A general home inspection is a non-invasive, visual examination of the accessible areas of a residential property, performed for a fee, which is designed to identify defects within specific systems and components that are both observed and deemed material by the inspector. It is based on the observations made on the date of the inspection, and is not a prediction of future conditions. It is a snapshot in time. A general home inspection will not reveal every issue that exists or ever could exist, but only those material defects observed on the date of the inspection.

4.1.3 - Foundation

Poor Ventilation of Foundation Area

The foundation is poorly ventilated. Increased ventilation (introduction and movement of fresh air) is recommended. This can be accomplished by partially opening basement windows, doors and/or vents on opposite sides of the foundation on a regular basis (when weather is suitable).  And by installing a dehumidifier to decrease moisture.
