This report is the exclusive property of this inspection company and the client(s) listed in the report title. Use of this report by any unauthorized persons is prohibited.

NOTE:
This inspector attempted to inspect for insect infestation and or structural soundness of the wood beams, but due to the fact that approx. 90% of structural beams are covered by building materials (drywall, acoustic ceiling tiles), the inspector was not able to determine a general condition of the wood beams, or level of infestation (if any).

The inspector noted NO evidence of past intrusion of wood destroying insect infestation, NO beam damage, in some of the beams viewed, and evidence of present professional treatment. It is recommended for the client to request a transferable guarantee from the home owner (as they claim that treatments are regularly scheduled with a local Termite professional). If no warranty is obtained, the client should hire a professional Termite exterminator, to inspect, test, and treat as necessary, for any Termites or other insects.

Based on the observations, age of this house, and existing conditions at the time of the inspection, no major structural problem was noted and assumed with the main house. Most wood beams observed appeared intact.

The general housekeeping, maintenance, and management of this house are very good.

1) Structures built prior to 1979 may contain lead-based paint and/or asbestos in various building materials such as insulation, siding, and/or floor and ceiling tiles. Both lead and asbestos are known health hazards. Evaluating for the presence of lead and/or asbestos is not included in this inspection. The client(s) should consult with specialists as necessary, such as industrial hygienists, professional labs and/or abatement contractors for this type of evaluation. For information on lead, asbestos and other hazardous materials in homes, visit these websites:
  • The Environmental Protection Association (http://www.epa.gov)
  • The Consumer Products Safety Commission (http://www.cpsc.gov)
  • The Center for Disease Control (http://www.cdc.gov)
    2) Some of the insulating materials appeared to be Asbestos. The client may wish to consult an Asbestos removal contractor, to determine if this material is Asbestos, and have it removed or encapsulated.
     
    Exterior Return to table of contents
    Footing material: Poured in place concrete
    Foundation material: Concrete block
    Apparent wall structure: Wood frame, Concrete block
    Wall covering: Vinyl
    Driveway material: Asphalt
    Sidewalk material: N/A
    Exterior door material: Solid core wood
    3) One or more large trees on the property may be likely to fall on the structure, and are a potential safety hazard. Recommend consulting with a qualified arborist to determine if tree(s) need to be removed and/or pruned.
    4) One or more hornet, bee and/or wasp nests were found in the attic area (it is not known if it is active or not). These can pose a safety hazard. Nest(s) should be removed as necessary.
    5) One or more areas of the grounds around the structure have significantly soggy soil, standing water or indications of accumulated water at times (sediment, dead grass, etc.). Recommend consulting with a qualified contractor who specializes in drainage, to determine if or what repairs are needed to provide adequate drainage. Possible repairs may involve grading soil, or installing, repairing and/or replacing underground drains.
    6) The perimeter grading slopes towards the structure in one or more areas. This can result in water accumulating around the structure's foundation, or in basements and crawl spaces if they exist. Accumulated water is a conducive condition to wood destroying insects and organisms. Wet soil may also cause the foundation to settle and possibly fail over time. Recommend grading soil so it slopes down and away from the structure with a slope of at least 5% (10% or better is optimal) for at least 6 feet.
    7) One or more downspouts have no extensions, or have extensions that are ineffective. This can result in water accumulating around the structure's foundation, or in basements and crawl spaces if they exist. Accumulated water is a conducive condition to wood destroying insects and organisms, and may also cause the foundation to settle and possibly fail over time. Repairs should be made as necessary, such as installing or repositioning splash blocks, or installing and/or repairing tie-ins to underground drain lines, so rain water is carried at least several feet away from the structure to soil that slopes down and away from the structure.
    8) One or more end caps are missing on downspouts (used as dummy covers for air conditioning penetrations into the house.). End caps should be replaced where missing, to reduce the potential for water infiltration.
    9) Soil is in contact with or less than six inches from siding and/or trim. This is a conducive condition for wood destroying insects and organisms. Soil should be graded and/or removed as necessary so there are at least six inches of space between the siding and trim and the soil below.
    10) Vegetation such as trees, shrubs and/or vines are in contact with or less than one foot from the structure's exterior. Vegetation can serve as a conduit for wood destroying insects and may retain moisture against the exterior after it rains. Vegetation should be pruned and/or removed as necessary to maintain a one foot clearance between it and the structure's exterior.
    11) The exterior finish in some areas is failing (front entrance pillars). A qualified contractor should prep (pressure wash, scrape, sand, prime caulk, etc.) and repaint or restain areas as needed and as per standard building practices.
    12) One or more sections of foundation and/or exterior walls are excluded from this inspection due to lack of access from vegetation, debris and/or stored items.
    13)   The cable wire supply from the pole in the rear yard is very low in height (from the ground). The client may wish to have the cable company raise this wire, to reduce the potential for liability hazards.
     
    Roof Return to table of contents
    Roof inspection method: Viewed from ground with binoculars, Viewed from windows
    Roof type: Gable, Cross-hipped
    Roof covering: Asphalt or fiberglass composition shingles
    Estimated age of roof: 9 years
    Gutter & downspout material: Aluminum
    Roof ventilation: Adequate
    : The general condition of the roof area is good.
    14) There were some visible signs of water leakage in the den wall area. According to the homeowner, this condition has been corrected. The client should request a transferable written warranty from the roofing contractor, and owner. The client needs to monitor this condition.
     
    Garage Return to table of contents
    : The overall condition of the garage is satisfactory at this time.
    15) The interior perimeter of the garage is excluded from this inspection due to lack of access from stored items.
     
    Attic Return to table of contents
    Inspection method: Partially traversed
    Roof structure type: Rafters
    Ceiling structure: Ceiling beams
    Insulation material: Fiberglass roll or batt
    Insulation depth: Unknown
    Insulation estimated R value: Unknown
    16) Recessed "can" lights are installed in the ceiling below the attic. The inspector was unable to find a label or markings that indicated if these lights are designed to be in contact with insulation, and one or more lights are in contact with insulation. This is a possible fire hazard. Further evaluation should be performed, by a qualified contractor if necessary, to determine if these lights are rated for contact with insulation. If they aren't, or if their rating can't be determined, insulation should be moved, and wells or barriers should be installed or repaired as necessary to keep the insulation away from these lights.
    17) Cover plate(s) are missing from one or more electric boxes, such as for receptacles, switches and/or junction boxes. They are intended to contain fire and prevent electric shock from exposed wires. This is a safety hazard due to the risk of fire and shock. Cover plates should be installed where missing.
    18) No ceiling insulation is installed in the attic. A qualified contractor should install insulation for better energy efficiency and as per standard building practices with an R rating recommended for this area.
    19) Pull-down stairs are installed for the attic access. No insulation is installed above the stairs and no weatherstripping is installed around the hatch perimeter. To reduce air leakage, recommend installing weatherstripping and an insulated hatch cover. An example of one can be seen at http://www.batticdoor.com/

    Interior air leaking into the attic results in heating and cooling losses, increased energy costs, and a possible increase in moisture levels in the attic due condensation forming on the underside of the roof sheathing during cold weather.

    21) Low voltage interior lighting was found during the inspection. This is considered to be a specialty system. Only a cursory evaluation of this lighting was performed during the inspection. For a full evaluation, the client(s) should hire a qualified electrician.
    22) The main service panel cover (on the second floor), couldn't be removed due to lack of access from stored items. This panel wasn't fully evaluated.
     
    Water heater Return to table of contents
    Estimated age: 10 years
    Type: Tank
    Energy source: Electricity
    Capacity (in gallons): 65
    Manufacturer: Weil MacLain
    Model: N/a.
    Water temperature (degrees Fahrenheit): 120 degrees
    23) Temperature-pressure relief valve drain line is too short. This is a potential safety hazard due to the risk of scalding if someone is standing next to the water heater when the valve opens. A qualified plumber should extend the drain line to 6 inches from the floor, or route it so as to drain outside.
    24) The estimated useful life for most water heaters is 8 to 12 years. This water heater appears to be at this age or older and may need replacing at any time. Recommend budgeting for a replacement in the near future.
     
    Heating and cooling Return to table of contents
    Estimated age: 9 years
    Primary heating system energy source: Electric, Oil
    Primary heat system type: Forced air, Baseboard, Up draft
    Primary A/C energy source: Electric
    Primary Air conditioning type: Split system, Heat pump
    Distribution system: Flexible ducts, Metal pipe

    Model: N/a.
    Filter location: Behind return air grill
    Last service date: Unknown.
    25) The estimated useful life for most oil boilers is 15 to 20 years. This furnace appears to be at this age or older and may need replacing at any time. Recommend budgeting for a replacement in the near future.
    26) The estimated useful life for air conditioning compressors is 8 to 15 years. This unit appears to be approaching this age and may need replacing at any time. Recommend budgeting for a replacement in the near future.
    27) The last service date of this system appears to be more than one year ago, or the inspector was unable to determine the last service date. The client(s) should ask the property owner(s) when it was last serviced. If unable to determine the last service date, or if this system was serviced more than one year ago, a qualified heating and cooling contractor should inspect, clean, and service this system, and make repairs if necessary. This servicing should be performed annually in the future.
    28) As the oil tank ages, recommend buying oil tank replacement insurance, available from many full-service oil providers. This can cover up to 100% of the replacement costs of an oil tank and usually costs less than a few dollars per month.
     
    Plumbing and laundry Return to table of contents
    Water pressure (psi): 80 PSI
    Location of main water shut-off valve: Basement.
    Location of main water meter: Basement.
    Location of main fuel shut-off: Basement.
    Visible fuel storage systems: Oil tank in boiler room.
    Water service: Public
    Service pipe material: Copper, Galvanized steel
    Supply pipe material: Copper
    Vent pipe material: Plastic, Galvanized steel
    Drain pipe material: Plastic
    Waste pipe material: Plastic
    29) No ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) protection device is visible for the sump pump electric supply. A qualified electrician should determine if a GFCI protection device (receptacle or circuit breaker) exists for the sump pump and install one if missing to reduce the danger of electric shock.
    30) The clothes dryer is equipped with a vinyl or foil, accordion-type, flexible exhaust duct. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission considers these types of ducts to be unsafe, and a fire hazard. These types of ducts can trap lint and are susceptible to kinks or crushing, which can greatly reduce the air flow. This duct should be replaced with a rigid or corrugated semi-rigid metal duct, and by a qualified contractor if necessary. Most clothes dryer manufacturers specify the use of a rigid or corrugated semi-rigid metal duct. For more information on dryer safety issues, see http://www.cpsc.gov/CPSCPUB/PUBS/5022.html
    31) Copper water supply pipes in homes built prior to 1986 may be joined with solder that contains lead. Lead is a known health hazard, especially for children. Laws were passed in 1985 prohibiting the use of lead in solder, but prior to that solder normally contained about 50 percent lead. The client(s) should be aware of this, especially if children will be living in this structure. Evaluating for the presence of lead in this structure is not included in this inspection. The client(s) should consider having a qualified lab test for lead, and if necessary take steps to reduce or remove lead from the water supply. Various solutions such as these may be advised:

  • Flush water taps or faucets. Do not drink water that has been sitting in the plumbing lines for more than six hours.
  • Install appropriate filters at points of use.
  • Use only cold water for cooking and drinking. Hot water dissolves lead more quickly than cold water.
  • Use bottled or distilled water.
  • Treat well water to make it less corrosive.
  • Have a qualified plumbing contractor replace supply pipes and/or plumbing components as necessary.

    For more information visit:
    http://www.cpsc.gov/CPSCPUB/PUBS/5056.html
    http://www.epa.gov/safewater/lead/index.html
    32) Recommend having the septic tank inspected. Recommend having the tank pumped if it was last pumped more than 3 years ago.
    33) Plumbing supply lines appear to be made of Polybutene. Polybutene is a plastic material used extensively during the 1980s and 1990s that has proven to be more prone to leakage than other types of supply piping systems like copper. Recommend reviewing any disclosure statements if available for comments on leaks in the water supply system.

    A class action lawsuit has been filed regarding this material that requires the manufacturers to cover piping systems installed between Jan. 1, 1978 through July 31, 1995. For more information on the class action lawsuit, visit http://www.pbpipe.com/index1.htm , or call the Plumbing Claims Group at (800) 356-3496 for more information.

    34) This property has both a septic system and a water softener system, and the water softener's discharge line appears to be routed into the septic waste line. There is some debate as to whether this configuration is advisable because of the following:

  • Salt in the discharge water may kill the needed bacteria, causing sludge to build up, and possibly plugging the lines.
  • Salt may interact with clay in the leach field soil and cause the water to not disperse.
  • The discharge cycle may disturb the septic tank when it cycles (usually at night), and prevent sludge from settling, resulting in sludge escaping from the tank.
  • Marginally sized septic tanks can be overwhelmed by the volume of water during the discharge cycle and may cause sludge to escape.

    Recommend that the client(s) consult with one or more contractors who specialize in septic systems and water softeners for more information.
    35) The clothes washer had clothing in it and was not operated during this inspection. The inspector was unable to fully evaluate the washer and its drain line.
    36) A sump pump is installed on the premises. This may indicate that water accumulates inside or below the structure. Recommend asking the property owners how often the sump pump operates and for how long at different times of the year. Also, the clients should be aware that the service life of most sump pumps is between five and seven years, and that the pump may need replacing soon depending on its age and how much it operates.
     
    Fireplaces, wood stoves and chimneys Return to table of contents
    Fireplace type: Masonry
    Wood stove type: None.
    Chimney type: Masonry
    37) The sealant material at the connection from the exhaust flue and the chimney in the boiler room has failed (holes and cracks), and needs to be re-applied. This condition can create a potential for Carbon Monoxide poisoning.
    38) All solid fuel burning appliances (wood stoves and fireplaces, etc.) should be inspected annually by a qualified chimney service contractor, cleaned and repaired as necessary.
     
    Basement Return to table of contents
    Insulation material underneath floor above: None visible
    Pier or support post material: Bearing wall, Masonry
    Beam material: Solid wood
    Floor structure above: Solid wood joists
    39) One or more open ground, three-pronged electric receptacles were found (laundry room area). This is a safety hazard due to the risk of shock. A qualified electrician should evaluate and make repairs as necessary. For example, replacing receptacles or correcting wiring circuits.

    Grounding type receptacles began being required in residential structures during the 1960s. Based on the age of this structure and the presence of 2-pronged receptacles in some areas of this structure, an acceptable repair may be to simply replace the ungrounded 3-pronged receptacles with 2-pronged receptacles. However the following appliances require grounding type receptacles:

  • Computer hardware
  • Refrigerators
  • Freezers
  • Air conditioners
  • Clothes washers
  • Clothes dryers
  • Dishwashers
  • Kitchen food waste disposers
  • Information technology equipment
  • Sump pumps
  • Electrical aquarium equipment
  • Hand-held motor-operated tools
  • Stationary and fixed motor-operated tools
  • Light industrial motor-operated tools
  • Hedge clippers
  • Lawn mowers

    This list is not exhaustive. Grounded circuits and receptacles should be installed in locations where such appliances will be used.
    40) Evidence of prior water intrusion was found in one or more sections of the basement. For example, water stains and/or efflorescence on the foundation or floor, water stains at bases of support posts, etc. Accumulated water is a conducive condition for wood destroying insects and organisms and should not be present in the basement. The client(s) should review any disclosure statements available and ask the property owner(s) about past accumulation of water in the basement. The basement should be monitored in the future for accumulated water, especially after heavy and/or prolonged periods of rain. If water is found to accumulate, a qualified contractor who specializes in drainage issues should evaluate and repair as necessary. Typical repairs for preventing water from accumulating in the basement include:

  • Repairing, installing or improving rain run-off systems (gutters, downspouts and extensions or drain lines)
  • Improving perimeter grading
  • Repairing, installing or improving underground footing and/or curtain drains

    Ideally, water should not enter the basement, but if water must be controlled after it enters the basement, then typical repairs include installing sump pump(s) or interior perimeter drains.
    41)   There are combustibles stored too close to the boiler. This if a fire hazard. There should be a clearance of a minimum of 3 feet from the boiler to any combustible material.
    42)   There is an unfinished room in the basement area, and the client may wish to finish painting it for aesthetic reasons.
     
    Kitchen Return to table of contents

    43) One or more electric receptacles that serve counter top surfaces within six feet of a sink appear to have no ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) protection. This is a safety hazard due to the risk of shock. A qualified electrician should evaluate to determine if GFCI protection exists, and if not, repairs should be made so that all receptacles that serve counter top surfaces within six feet of sinks have GFCI protection. For example, install GFCI receptacles or circuit breaker(s) as needed.
    44) The range hood fan vents into the kitchen rather than outdoors. Ventilation may be inadequate and moisture may accumulate indoors. Recommend having a qualified contractor make modifications as necessary as per standard building practices so the range hood fan vents outdoors.
     
    Bathrooms Return to table of contents

    45) One or more ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) electric receptacles did not trip when tested with the inspector's test instrument (upstairs bathroom). These devices should trip when tested with a test instrument in addition to tripping via the test buttons on the receptacles. This is a safety hazard due to the risk of shock. A qualified electrician should evaluate and repair as necessary.
    46) The inspector was unable to determine if ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) protection is installed for the jetted tub's electric supply due to lack of access to the equipment below the tub (there is no access panel to these controls at this time.). If no GFCI protection is installed, then this is a safety hazard due to the risk of shock. A qualified contractor and/or electrician should evaluate and install GFCI protection if none exists. If necessary, modifications should be made to allow access to the GFCI device for periodic evaluation and to reset it when it trips.
    47) Tile and/or grout around one or more bathtubs is damaged or deteriorated. For example, deteriorated or missing grout, cracked, missing or loose tiles, etc (master bathroom, and guest bath in the first floor). A qualified contractor should evaluate and repair tile and/or grout as necessary.
    48) Tile, stone and/or grout flooring is damaged and/or deteriorated in one or more "wet" areas with a wood sub floor below (master bathroom). The deterioration may allow water intrusion, and may result in damage to the sub floor. A qualified contractor should evaluate and make repairs as necessary. For example, replacing broken tiles and deteriorated grout, and resealing grout.
     
    Interior rooms Return to table of contents

    49) One or more open ground, three-pronged grounding type receptacles were found Master bedroom). This is a safety hazard due to the risk of shock. A qualified electrician should evaluate and make repairs as necessary.

    Grounding type receptacles were first required in residential structures during the 1960s. Based on the age of this structure and/or the absence of 2-pronged receptacles, repairs should be made by correcting wiring circuits as necessary so all receptacles are grounded as per standard building practices. Replacement of three-pronged receptacles with 2-pronged receptacles is not an acceptable solution.

    50) One or more electric receptacles are broken or damaged (Den area). This is a safety hazard due to the risk of fire and shock. A qualified electrician should replace them as necessary.
    51) Cover plate(s) are missing from one or more electric boxes, such as for receptacles, switches and/or junction boxes. They are intended to contain fire and prevent electric shock from exposed wires. This is a safety hazard due to the risk of fire and shock. Cover plates should be installed where missing.
    52) Minor cracks were found in ceilings in one or more areas. They do not appear to be a structural concern, but the client(s) may wish to repair these for aesthetic reasons.
    53)   There is a retractable chandelier in the entrance foyer of this house (for ease of cleaning purposes). Access to the hoisting mechanism was difficult, and the client may wish to question the homeowner, If the chandelier is a part of the sale, and If so, how to operate it.
    54)   There were two broken light switches in the entrance foyer.
    The client may wish to have these repaired or replaced, by a qualified electrician.

    55)   The damage wall coverings at the Den area (from a previous water leakage), should be repaired.
