1) One or more light fixtures are damaged and/or deteriorated. A qualified electrician should evaluate and repair or replace light fixtures where necessary.
2) 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.
3) 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.
4) The exterior finish in some areas is failing. 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.
6) Asphalt or tar sealant has been used on metal roofing in one or more areas. This is not a standard building practice since it can trap moisture between the metal and the sealant and accelerate rusting and/or corrosion. It's likely this roof has had active leaks and was repaired by someone other than a qualified roofing contractor. A qualified roofing contractor should evaluate and make repairs as necessary.
7) Standing water was found on the flat roof. It should evaporate within 48 hours after it rains. If standing water remains after 48 hours, then the roof installation is likely substandard. A qualified roofing contractor should evaluate and repair if necessary to prevent prolonged standing water.
8) One or more "rubber boot" flashings are damaged or deteriorated and may result in leaks or vermin intrusion. A qualified contractor should replace flashings where necessary.
9) One or more sections of metal roofing have a failing paint finish. For example, peeling and/or missing paint. A qualified contractor should repaint metal panels where necessary.
Distribution system: Sheet metal ducts, Flexible ducts
Filter location: In return air duct below furnace
Last service date: Unknown
14) Insulation for the outside condensing unit's refrigerant lines is damaged, deteriorated and/or missing in one or more areas. This may result in reduced efficiency and increased energy costs. A qualified heating and cooling contractor should replace insulation as necessary.
15) Air handler filter(s) should be checked monthly in the future and replaced or washed as necessary.
16) The heating systems were checked and appears to be functional at the time of the inspection.
17) The outdoor air temperature was below 60 degrees Fahrenheit during the inspection. Because of this, the inspector was unable to operate and fully evaluate the cooling system.
18) HVAC heat mode with infrared for all 10 units.
20) One or more electric receptacles have reverse-polarity wiring, where the hot and neutral wires are reversed. This is a safety hazard due to the risk of shock. A qualified electrician should evaluate and make repairs as necessary.
21) One or more faucets leak by handle(s) or at their base when turned on. A qualified plumber should evaluate and repair as necessary.
22) The dishwasher was checked and appears to be functional.
23) The refrigerator was checked and appears to be functional.
24) The refrigerator ice maker is in the "off" position. The inspector was unable to evaluate this component.
25) The microwave was checked and appears to be functional.
27) One or more exhaust fans is inoperable or provides inadequate air flow. Moisture may accumulate as a result. A qualified contractor should evaluate and replace the fan or make repairs as necessary. Ladies restroom in main office area.
28) The bathroom faucets were checked and appear to be functional.
29) The bathroom sinks were checked and appear to be functional.
30) The toilets were inspected and appear to be functional.
32) 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.
33) Stains and elevated levels of moisture were found in one or more ceiling areas. The stain(s) appear to be due to roof leaks. A qualified contractor should evaluate and repair as necessary. Located at front right side of warehouse.
34) The weatherstrip around one or more exterior entry doors is missing and/or deteriorated. Weatherstrip should be installed where missing and/or replaced where deteriorated, and by a qualified contractor if necessary.
35) Carpeting in one or more rooms is damaged and/or significantly deteriorated. Recommend replacing carpeting where necessary.
36) Carpeting in one or more rooms is soiled and/or stained. Recommend having carpeting professionally cleaned as necessary.
37) One or more light fixtures appear to be inoperable. Recommend further evaluation by replacing bulb(s) and/or consulting with the property owner(s). Repairs or replacement of the light fixture(s) by a qualified electrician may be necessary.
38) Stains were found in one or more ceiling areas. However, no elevated levels of moisture were found. The stain(s) may be due to past roof and/or plumbing leaks. 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.
39) Windows,doors,electrical outlets that were evaluated appeared to be functional at time of inspection.
40) General pictures of interior rooms.
41) Insulation is in place at exterior walls and ceilings with infrared.
42) General pictures of the warehouse.
