Comment Key or Definitions
This home is new construction. This is a framing inspection only. Please review this report closely to determine if any item or component was not inspected due to incomplete work. Utilities are not on during this inspection and therefore this inspection is limited framing related issues. Please note, while we may identify code compliance issues, this is not the same as a code compliance inspection (which we are not authorized to perform).


This inspection was performed visually. We did not inspect using a tape measure to determine where walls, floors or stairs are to be located. This inspection examines workmanship, and typically does not rely on construction drawings, or the use of measurement equipment. This Guideline is intended to help the customer understand the limitations of this inspection. The time spent inspecting the progress of the construction limits the inspector to a visual inspection for workmanlike practices. It does not determine the conformity to the blueprints in regards to dimensions and locations. It cannot prevent shortcuts by sub-contractors that could occur in between inspections and in the absence of the builder. The inspector does not determine whether or not agreed selections of fixtures or materials were used.


The following definitions of comment descriptions represent this inspection report. All comments by the inspector should be considered before purchasing this home. Any items listed in the report as "Not Inspected" or "Unfinished or Unsatisfactory" suggests to you to obtain a second opinion and or consult with your builder .


Inspected (IN) = I visually observed the item, component or unit and if no other comments were made then it appeared to be constructed or installed properly.


Not Inspected (NI)= I did not inspect this item, component or unit and made no representations of whether or not it was functioning as intended and will state a reason for not inspecting.


Unfinished or Unsatisfactory (UN) = The comment from the inspector will clearly state whether the construction or installation of item, component or unit is not complete, or if it was not constructed or installed in a standard workmanlike practice.


Not Visible (NV) = Unable to view this item due to obstructions, location, not complete at this stage etc.

3.1.1 - Cooling System

Copper/Alum Contact

Copper and aluminum when in direct contact can result in degradation of the metals, a process called galvanic reaction. Because of this, copper and aluminum should not make direct contact.

3.2.1 - Duct Work Install

Flex Duct

When installed, flex ducts should not be crimped or squashed and sharp turns should be avoided. Crimping and sharp turn reduce air flow and will affect system performance.
