The following items are excluded from this inspection: Security system
1) This property has one or more fuel burning appliances, and the required amount of carbon monoxide alarms are not visible. This is a potential safety hazard. As of 2009 State law requires that a carbon monoxide alarm be installed within 15 feet of each sleeping room in a dwelling. Attached garages and mechanical rooms could also be equipped with a CO detector as well.(or in a location as specified in any building code adopted by the state or any local government entity). Recommend further evaluation and compliance with these safety components, regulations and requirements.
2) The hot tub was not evaluated. The hot tub was observed drained at the time of the inspection. Contact a local specialist for service, repair and or more information.
Roof inspection method: Viewed from eaves on ladder, Viewed from ground with binoculars
Roof type: Cross gable
Roof covering: Wood shakes
Estimated age of roof: 6 years
Gutter & downspout material: None
Roof ventilation: Adequate
6) Some wood shakes are slightly damaged and/or deteriorated. Over time, wood shakes typically curl, split, rot at the ends, "burn through", and/or become loose. Such failures typically result in exposed felt and/or possibly leaks. A qualified roofing contractor could evaluate and replace shakes as necessary and should clean the wood shake roof as necessary, and apply a preservative soon and every three to five years in the future.
8) Minor ceiling damage was found in one garage ceiling area. However, no elevated levels of moisture were found. The damage may be due to past roof leak. Recommend asking the property owner(s) about this, and monitoring the stained area(s) in the future, especially after heavy or prolonged rain. If elevated moisture is found in the future, a qualified contractor should evaluate and repair as necessary.
Water temperature (degrees Fahrenheit): Approximately 120 degrees
11) The hot water temperature is greater than 120 degrees Fahrenheit. This is a safety hazard due to the risk of scalding. The thermostat should be adjusted so the water temperature doesn't exceed 120 degrees. For more information on scalding dangers, visit: http://www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/pubs/5098.html
12) Indirect fired hot water storage tank and and installations.
13) 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 hydronic heating specialist should service this system and make repairs if necessary. This servicing should be performed annually in the future.
14) Hydronic heating system components and installations.
21) The jet tub in the North master suite bathroom did not respond to normal operation of the controls. The inspector observed the GFCI circuits and tub components below the tub and could not determine the reason for the malfunction. Recomend asking the current owners about this and or having a qualified contractor evaluate further and repair as necessary.
23) The home is equipped with a residential grade elevator that services all three levels of the home. The elevator responded to normal operation of the controls. Recommend having the elevator serviced regularly as suggested by the manufacture by a qualified elevator service contractor.
24) Interior aspects.
