Photo 3-3 Pool Filter and heater. Note: Heater is oil fired, oil line (yellow) runs under driveway to above ground 275 gallon tank located to the north.
4) 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. Wood siding and/or trim is rotten in some areas as a result. A qualified contractor should evaluate and repair as necessary, replacing all rotten wood. Also, the 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.

6) Sidewalk(s) and/or patios are undermined in one or more areas, where soil has eroded out from beneath. Repairs should be made to prevent further erosion and undermining.
Photo
Photo 6-1 Recommend repairing to avoid further deterioration.
7) South side. Gate. Difficult to open, close and does not lock/latch. Repairs should be made as necessary, and by a qualified contractor if necessary, so gates operate easily. Due to pool, recommend self-locking, self-latching gate be installed.
Photo
Photo 7-1 South-west. Gate to back yard/pool does not lock. Recommend installing fence around pool with self-closing and self-latching gates.
Photo
Photo 7-2 
8) 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.

59) Based on the age of this structure and the appearance of existing smoke alarms, the alarms may be older than 10 years old. According to National Fire Protection Association, aging smoke alarms don't operate as efficiently and often are the source for nuisance alarms. Older smoke alarms are estimated to have a 30% probability of failure within the first 10 years. Newer smoke alarms do better, but should be replaced after 10 years. Unless you know that the smoke alarms are new, replacing them when moving into a new residence is also recommended by NFPA. For more information, visit:
http://www.google.com/search?q=old+smoke+alarms
60) An insufficient number of smoke alarms are installed. Additional smoke alarms should be installed as necessary so a functioning one exists in each hallway leading to bedrooms, and in each bedroom. For more information, visit http://www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/pubs/5077.html
61) One or more electric receptacles are broken or damaged. This is a safety hazard due to the risk of fire and shock. A qualified electrician should replace them as necessary.
