Acceptance and/or payment of this standard inspection report shall constitute acceptance of and agreement to all the provisions of the "Inspection Agreement" and its terms and conditions which were provided at the time of the inspection, or on the company website at the time of payment, and which are attached to this inspection report. This is a standard home inspection report. A 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 not a prediction of future conditions. It is a snapshot in time. A 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. The inspector is not required to move personal items, furnishings, plants, or debris. We highly recommend that any concerns about the findings in the report or questions you have about the dwelling be evaluated by a licensed professional (general contractor, plumbing contractor, electrical contractor, roofing contractor, heating & air contractor) who deal with the concern.The photographs in the report may not show all the areas of the item(s) of concern. This report is the exclusive property of Tanner Home Inspections Inc and the client(s) listed in the report title. Tanner Home Inspections Inc is not responsible for misrepresentations by 3rd parties. The report is not transferable. Use of this report by any unauthorized persons is prohibited.

Irrigation Manufacturer: RainBird
Water filtration/softner: Ecowater
The swimming pool siding appears to be near the end of its service life, recommend evaluation by a qualified contractor.
Downspouts have no extensions, or have extensions that are ineffective. This can result in water accumulating around the structure's foundation. 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.
Water supply pipes are routed outside and are subject to freezing; recommend repairing. replacing, or installing insulation.
Vehicle Door Opener Manufacturer: Craftsman, 1/2HP
Damage was found to the ceiling. It does not appear to be a structural concern, but the client(s) may wish to repair these for aesthetic reasons.

Age (in years): 5 (air handler) 12 (compressor)
Primary heating system energy source: Electric
Primary heat system type: Heat pump
Primary A/C energy source: Electric
Primary Air conditioning type: Split system
Filter location: Air Handler
The cooling fins on the air handler's evaporator coils are dirty. This may result in reduced efficiency and higher energy costs. Some sources claim that energy efficiency is degraded by about five percent each year as the coils get dirtier due to accumulated dust and grime. A qualified heating and cooling contractor should clean the evaporator coils as necessary.
The central air conditioning drip line should be checked periodically and cleaned. Maintain by pouring a cup of warm water mixed with white vinegar down the line. If clogging occurs contact a qualified contractor for servicing.
The outdoor air temperature was above 65 degrees Fahrenheit during the inspection. Because of this, the inspector was unable to operate and fully evaluate the heating system.

No attempt is made to predict the future operation of the system or its components. Should the customer have any concerns at any time with the results/findings, it is highly recommended they consult a licensed contractor. Building permits should be reviewed by the customer(s). If there are no permits for upgrades and/or improvements or permits are not finalized, then we recommend evaluation by a qualified contractor(s).

Recommend cleaning or changing exhaust fan filter(s) at occupancy.
Recommend cleaning all appliances prior to use.
There are no areas of concern in the kitchen at the time of the inspection.
The appliances are operated at the time of the inspection at normal settings. The inspector/company does not warrant any future condition of the appliances.
The second bathroom sink drain uses a flexible drain pipe. This type of drain pipe is more likely to clog than smooth wall pipe. Recommend having a qualified plumber replace this pipe with standard plumbing components (smooth wall pipe) to prevent clogged drains.
The second bathroom door will not latch when closed. Repairs should be made as necessary, and by a qualified contractor if necessary. For example, aligning strike plates with latch bolts and/or replacing locksets.
The master bathroom and second bathroom with a shower does not have an exhaust fan installed. Moisture accumulation will occur and may damage the structure. Even if the bathroom has a window that opens, it likely does not provide adequate ventilation, especially during cold weather when the window is closed.
Batteries in all the smoke alarms should be replaced after taking occupancy, and annually in the future. "Chirping" noises emitted from smoke alarms typically indicate that batteries need replacing. Additional smoke alarms should be installed as necessary so a functioning one exists in each hallway leading to bedrooms, and in each bedroom.
Smoke alarms have a useful life of about ten years. At that age they should be replaced, even if they seem to be working. This will assure that the alarm will be working when you need it.
The enclosed patio vinyl windows are damaged. A qualified contractor should replace windows where necessary.
The hall closet folding door(s) is "off track". Recommend repairs by a qualified contractor.
Fireplace type: Metal prefabricated
The inspector may not be able to view all areas of the chimney/fireplace due to height and location, recommend evaluation of all fire burning appliances annually by a qualified contractor.

Debris has accumulated in the gutters. Gutters should be cleaned now and as necessary in the future.
Trees and/or shrubs are in contact with or are close to the roof edge(s) in one or more areas. Damage to the roof may result, especially during high winds. Vegetation can also act as a conduit for wood destroying insects. Vegetation should be pruned back and/or removed as necessary to prevent damage and infestation by wood destroying insects.
If the home you are having inspected has a roof that is 10 years old or older and/or if there are no building permits available for a reroof and/or repairs; it is highly recommended that you consult your homeowners insurance agent to discuss any requirements.
Building permits should be reviewed by the customer(s). If there are no permits for upgrades and/or improvements or permits are not finalized, then we recommend evaluation by a qualified contractor(s).
THIS AGREEMENT is between Tanner Home Inspections Inc (hereinafter "INSPECTOR") and the client named (hereinafter "CLIENT"), collectively referred to herein as "the parties." The Parties Understand and Voluntarily Agree as follows: INSPECTOR agrees to perform a visual inspection of the home/building and to provide CLIENT with a written inspection report identifying the defects that INSPECTOR both observed and deemed material.

Unless otherwise inconsistent with this Agreement or not possible, INSPECTOR agrees to perform the inspection in accordance to the current Standards of Practice of the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors.

INSPECTOR accepts no responsibility for use or misinterpretation by third parties. INSPECTOR'S inspection of the property and the accompanying report are in no way intended to be a guarantee or warranty, express or implied, regarding the future use, operability, habitability or suitability of the home/building or its components.

CLIENT waives any claim for consequential, exemplary, special or incidental damages or for the loss of the use of the home/building even if the CLIENT has been advised of the possibility of such damages.
