Overview
.
A home inspection is a non invasive, visual examination of the accessible areas of the property, designed to identify areas of concern within specific systems or components defined by the Florida State Standards of Practice, that are both observed and deemed material by the inspector at the exact date and time of inspection. 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 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.

Coverings: Roof Permit Dates Found
2002

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 no permit 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.

6.2.1 - Shingles

Self Seal Strips Loose

Composition shingles were loose because the adhesive, self-sealing strips weren't sealed. Leaks can occur as a result. Self-sealing strips secure the lower edge of shingles and reduce vulnerability to wind damage. Strips may not be sealed because the sealant has failed or because the sealant never activated and cured after the original installation. Recommend that a qualified contractor repair as necessary. For example, by hand sealing shingles with an approved sealant.

12.2.2 - Doors

Ghost Door
GuestBathroom

One or more interior doors would not stay open on it's own, commonly referred to as a 'ghost door'. This is caused by the door not being hung plumb. A simple fix is to remove the door hinge pin and hammer it on a concrete surface a few times to add a slight bend to the door pin. Reinstall the door pin. This slight bend will cause a minor bit of friction in the hinge, allowing the door to stay open. If this does not work with one hinge, keep trying on all 2-3 hinges till door stays open.
