Items Inspected

Thank you for choosing Shacks & Shanties Inspection Services for your home inspection.  We appreciate your confidence.

We understand that whatever the circumstances of your new house purchase - first time, rental/investment property, etc. - it is a big investment that you want to make sure is right for you. With that in mind, please remember and understand that no house is perfect; there will always be something that needs minor (or sometimes major) repair or maintenance. Small or minor (and even big or major) repair and/or maintenance items do not necessarily make a house unlivable, does not mean that it will fall down around you after you move in, nor make it unsafe. Ongoing maintenance and repairs are a part of homeownership, and there is always something that needs attention. An inspection endeavors to help you determine what those items might be, at the date and time specified in the inspection report. This information is to help you decide how those items figure in to your desire to purchase. Your Real Estate Agent, and Shacks & Shanties Inspection Services are here to help you realize your goals of homeownership.

Best Wishes,

Shacks & Shanties Inspection Services

Inspection Method
Non-Invasive, Visual, Tactile, Auditory, Olfactory, Operating Controls

Your general home inspection is a non-invasive inspection of the general condition of the house systems and components at the time of inspection.  Nothing is removed, disassembled, or moved during the general home inspection.  Working doors, windows and access hatches are opened, and normal operating controls are used to inspect the condition of systems.  Appliances are operated with normal operating controls; however, if any appliance, including heating, cooling and hot water systems are disconnected from a power source, the inspector will not connect that appliance for inspection and it will not be inspected.  Any electrical circuit breakers that are off at the time of inspection will not be turned on for the inspection, and anything served by that circuit will not be inspected.  The general home inspection is based on the observations made on the date of the inspection, and not a prediction of future conditions.  The 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.

Coverings: Architectural Asphalt Shingles

The roof was covered with laminated fiberglass composition asphalt shingles. Laminated shingles are composted of multiple layers bonded together. Laminated shingles are also called "architectural" or "laminated" shingles. Composition shingles are composed of a fiberglass mat embedded in asphalt and covered with ceramic coated mineral granules. Shingles with multiple layers bonded together are usually more durable than shingles composed of a single layer. This type of shingle have an average expected life of thirty (30) years.

With any exceptions noted, the composition asphalt shingles observed on the roof of this house appeared to be in good condition with normal signs of aging and wear. They appeared to be adequately protecting the underlying house structure at the time of inspection.  

Coverings: Architectural Asphalt Shingles - Remaining Life Expectancy

Asphalt composition shingles have a total average life expectancy of twenty (20) years. Asphalt composition shingles covering the roof of this house exhibited general deterioration commensurate with normal aging of the roof covering. They appeared to be adequately protecting the underlying house structure at the time of inspection. It is estimated that the remaining service life of the roof covering is ten (10) or more years.

The inspector does not hereby provide a certification, guarantee, or warranty as to roof condition or remaining life expectancy of the roof covering. Any estimates made herein are based solely upon general observation at the time of inspection. Estimated life and/or remaining life expectancy is given for information only, is not a certification, guarantee, or warranty. For a certification of roof covering condition and remaining life expectancy, it is recommended that you contact a properly licensed, experienced roofing contractor for evaluation.

I. The inspector shall inspect from ground level or the eaves: A. the roof-covering materials; B. the gutters; C. the downspouts; D. the vents, flashing, skylights, chimney, and other roof penetrations; and E. the general structure of the roof from the readily accessible panels, doors or stairs. II. The inspector shall describe: A. the type of roof-covering materials. III. The inspector shall report as in need of correction: A. observed indications of active roof leaks. IV.

GENERAL INFORMATION: A retaining wall is a structure that holds or retains earth behind it. It controls erosion of the soil and protects your house and/or property from soil/mud slides and sometimes flooding. There are many types of materials that can be used to create retaining walls; such as concrete blocks, poured concrete, treated timbers, rocks or boulders. While the type of retaining wall is not always obvious, and the home inspection does not endeavor to determine the type that may be present; below is brief information on some types of retaining walls:

  • Gravity walls depend on their mass (stone, concrete or other heavy material) to resist pressure from behind and may have a "batter" setback to improve stability by leaning back toward the retained soil.
  • Cantilevered retaining walls are made from an internal stem of steel-reinforced, cast-in-place concrete or mortared masonry (often in the shape of an inverted T). These walls cantilever loads (like a beam) to a large, structural footing, converting horizontal pressures from behind the wall to vertical pressures on the ground below. These walls require rigid concrete footings below seasonal frost depth. This type of wall uses much less material than a traditional gravity wall.
  • Sheet pile retaining walls are usually used in soft soil and tight spaces. Sheet pile walls are made out of steel, vinyl or wood planks which are driven into the ground. Taller sheet pile walls will need a tie-back anchor, or "dead-man" placed in the soil a distance behind the face of the wall, that is tied to the wall, usually by a cable or a rod. Anchors are then placed behind the potential failure plane in the soil.
  • Anchored retaining wall can be constructed in any of the aforementioned styles but also includes additional strength using cables or other stays anchored in the rock or soil behind it. While technically complex, this method is very useful where high loads are expected, or where the wall itself has to be slender and would otherwise be too weak.
Eaves & Soffits: Type
Open Eave

ABOUT EAVES, SOFFITS & FASCIA:  The eaves are the edges of the roof that overhang the face of a wall and, normally, project beyond the side of a building. The eaves form an overhang to direct water clear of the walls and may be decorated, or the ends left exposed as part of an architectural style. Soffits are actually eaves that have been "boxed" in so that the rafters are not seen. 

Hip roofs have a continuous eave that extends completely around the building. A gable roof has an eave along the side walls, formed at the rafter ends. Most gable roofs also have a rake eave, or rake extension formed on the gable ends. This is created by extending the rafters out past the building ends. Not only does the eave add to the appearance of the home, it also helps protect the building from sun, rain and snow. 

The rafter tails, or ends are finished with a fascia board that helps protect the rafters from water penetration, which will lead to wood rot.  Fascia boards must be monitored and maintained so that water does not penetrate the wood and cause wood rot. Fascia boards are vulnerable to leaking rain gutters and at the corners, where often, the cut ends were not painted or sealed to keep out moisture, and in either instance, wood rot will set in.  With the exception of intentionally exposed rafter tails as part of an architectural feature, fascia boards should always be installed.

In many instances the eaves of todays houses are finished off with a soffit - the covering on the underside of the overhang. Older houses often have an open eave, with the rafters adding to the decor. Some houses, such as might be seen on a Craftsman-style, have exposed rafter tails, or ends.  Exposed rafter tails must be monitored and maintained yearly to prevent rain water penetration of the wood, which causes wood rot.

Soffits must be designed and installed properly. One of the most important factors is proper ventilation. If soffits are not ventilated, they can cause the formation of ice dams at the eaves. As the attic warms from the house heat, it allows the roof surface to melt snow, or ice, which then runs down into the colder eave surfaces and freezes back again. This creates an ice dam that allows water to work its way back into the walls and ceilings of the house. Venting both the attic with eave vents and the soffit with vent systems increases air circulation and prevents this problem. Ventilation not only prevents ice dams, but helps reduce heat build-up in the summer.

Deck or Balcony : Joist Hangers Undersized

It was observed that 2" X 4" hangers were used used for 2" X 8" wood joists for the deck structure. These hangers are undersized, therefore, do not have the same number of attachment points (nails) as a properly sized joist hanger. Monitor for deck stability over time. There are methods to correct this without re-building your deck.

Please see the attachment on deck construction for more information.

Here is a link about attaching joists: Attaching Joists with Hangers

Hot Water Systems, Controls, Flues & Vents: Manufacturer
State

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. 

Hot Water Systems, Controls, Flues & Vents: Manufacture Date
1991

Average life expectancy of water heaters are 6 to 12 years. Manufacture date on water heater label as observed at time of inspection would indicate that unit has been in service since the house was built in 1994. The unit was appeared to be functioning adequately at time of inspection; however, at 24 years of service, the unit is at the end of it's life.

Sewer Ejector Pump System: Sewer Pump System
High Water Alarm Present

Your house is equipped with a sewer ejector pumping system. This system is needed to pump wastewater to the sewer service provider's main pipe. This system requires routine monitoring and maintenance.

Fuel Storage & Distribution Systems: Main Gas Shut-off Location
At Tank, At House Exterior

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.
