4 Roof Method of Inspection Type Material Number of Layers Condition Flashing Gutters and Downspouts/Condition Walk through Gable in front and flat at rear Composition Shingles and roll roofing Multiple Has neared its useful life at rear section. Membrane Aluminum. Every roof has two basic elements- the deck and the weather resistant covering. The deck (also called "roof sheathing") serves as a base for supporting the roof covering that, in turn, protects the structure from the weather. Inspection of the roof covering is done from the outside with a binocular or walk through, whereas the only access to actually view the deck is from inside the attic. Asphalt shingles roofs have a normal life of years. Aluminum is used for flashing material. Flashing is a term used to describe the metal inserts applied to the areas where a roof meets another component of the structure, or along the eaves. This is done to protect particularly vulnerable joints from leaking, and various metals are used for this purpose. Although no leaks were seen from roof, chimneys or gutter at the time of home inspection, the inspector cannot guarantee any future leaks due to heavy rains or snow accumulation. This inspection is based on existing conditions at the time of home inspection.

5 Findings Style of roof is gable in front and is covered with multiple layers of composition shingles which means that after useful life of existing roof, another layer cannot be placed. Flat at rear extension is covered with one ply of 90 lbs roofing paper and number of roofing layers on flat roof are unknown. Inspection of both roof was done by walking. Gable roof at rear has neared its useful life and need replacement soon, as roofing shingles has started curling and slightly eroding. Front section of this roof is in satisfactory condition. Provide flashing at roof valleys on front side to prevent leaks from snow accumulation. Mineral paper at rear flat roof is loose and needs to be secured with roofing nails and roof cement. Roof is ventilated by soffits. Replace leaking gutter at front and broken downspout at rear. Roof on top of front porch is in very poor condition and has cracks. Dents on porch roof surface indicate rotted wooden sheathing and other components under roof covering. Please contact a roofer to evaluate roof in front and rear.. Attic is finished with wall, hence inspection of rafters, ridge, roof sheathing or insulation could not be done. However, no leaks from roof were noted in the attic ceiling at the time of inspection.

6 Recommendations Periodical visual inspection for shingles should be done. It is important that the shingles don t break, split, or crumble. The inspection of the attic should be done, during heavy rains to further evaluate if there are any water leaks. Yearly cleaning of gutters and downspouts should be done.

7 Exterior Findings Subject property is a two family, wooden framed, detached structure constructed on top of a basement. Exterior of the house is covered with aluminum siding on three sides and vinyl siding at rear. Inspection of siding was done visually from ground and noted that, aluminum and vinyl shingles are in satisfactory condition, free from dents, cracks, paint peeling or warps at the time of inspection. Secure aluminum shingles at rear corners with corner molding. Cover exterior window opening with sheathing, insulation and matching siding (see pic). Siding is above the ground on all four sides. Front entrance to the house consists of masonry steps with limestone treads. Secure loose handrail and replace broken steps (see pic). Rear entry consists of wooden steps in satisfactory condition. Windows are vinyl sash replacement with thermal pane, double hung in satisfactory condition. Caulking around the window frames is satisfactory. First floor porch floor has rotted floor beam and rotted floor sheathing that is very unsafe and hazardous (see pic). Ceilings of wooden porch in front are caving in and sagging. Wooden lintel of second floor is dangerously sagging and has wood rot (see pic). I strongly suggest contacting a contractor and having him evaluate the front porch floor, ceiling and roof.

8 Contd. Exterior. Exterior light fixtures are located in front and rear. Provide weather proof covers on light bulbs located at exterior of the house. Doorbells are functional. A wooden deck is built at rear of the house. Visual inspection of this deck was done. Deck shows the signs of wear such as cracks and splits in the wooden members. Maintenance and protection is needed to preserve wood and extend its life. Ledger board is attached with nails to the band board. Instead ledger board should be bolted with lag bolts to the band joist. Guard rail is shaking and needs to be secured. Lower deck is poorly resting on broken bricks column and is unsafe (see pic). Replace broken brick column. Floor joists of upper deck are poorly connected with metal hangers and nails are missing for all metal hangers (see pic). Missing nails has made the deck unsecured, unsafe and hazardous. Provide proper nails in every hole of metal hangers. Install wooden support at the end of upper deck under floor beam for extra safety (see pic). Please contact a deck contractor to further evaluate the deck and take estimates. Lots and grounds Findings Concrete sidewalk is in good condition.

13 Foundation, basement and structure Foundation Type Material Condition Structure Basement Concrete blocks wit bricks footings. Satisfactory Wooden Introduction to the Foundations Many soil types lose load-bearing capacity when saturated with water. Other soils expand when wetted. One estimate reports that more than two thirds of U.S. soils are active in this way. Please note that many foundations develop a few cracks during the first few months after construction. These occur as the soil under the house accommodates itself to new loading (the soil may compress under a heavy house, or billow up if a heavy overburden was removed to prepare the site). Concrete often shows a few cracks due to shrinkage, and most building products expand and contract in response to changes in moisture and temperature. Conclusion: Perfect foundations are about as common as perfect people (if you re looking for perfection; perhaps you re on the wrong planet). All basements and crawlspaces are vulnerable to water seepage from the water table, poor drainage at footings or sewer drainage problems, which cannot be seen at the time of home inspection. A dry basement or crawl space at the time of home inspection does not necessarily mean that there is no water seepage at all. Installation of sump pump or French drains eliminates water seepage up to a certain extent. If the basement is finished with walls, ceilings or floor coverings, it is impossible to see, detect or predict past or future flooding or water seepage problems. Findings House is constructed on a leveled lot. Foundation is basement type constructed of concrete blocks. Exterior of the foundation is in satisfactory condition. Entrance to the basement is from rear and entry consists of a wooden stair in sturdy condition. Foundation walls are visible in utility room only. Major 2 wide step crack was seen on brick footing in boiler room. Horizontal crack was also noted in concrete blocks walls in boiler room. Please contact a mason to repair the cracks. Inspection of foundation walls for major defects or water penetration could not be done in other areas, since entire they are hidden behind fixed wall coverings. However, no major water penetration was seen at base of sheetrock walls. Minor mold infestation was seen at base of sheetrock in basement front. Repair broken concrete floor in boiler room (see pic). Structural components such as sill plate, band joist, ceiling joists are visible only in boiler room Provide vertical support under cracked ceiling joist in boiler room (see pic). I could not inspect structural components behind basement ceiling for termites or other defects.

14 Contd. Basement and Foundation. Deflection and sags in apartment flooring indicates a structural settlement. In my opinion, at present, this type of settlement is considered as normal, but should be monitored. In case, if the sags gets worse, then seek an advise from a structural engineer or a contractor. Overall condition of the basement is satisfactory and is adequately lit. Heating units, water heaters, water main, electrical panels, gas meters are located in the basement.

16 Electrical The following large drawings depict the evolution of residential electrical systems. The purpose of electrical inspection is to inspect the wiring inside the panels, circuit breakers or fuses, checking outlets for grounding or reversed neutrals and any exposed wiring. The inspection does not consist of overload calculation of circuits or number of circuit breakers. The home inspector is unable to check any concealed wiring or defects related. The home inspector is not an electrician. Only accessible outlets are tested. The Home Inspector is not required to move stored articles or access the outlets hiding behind them. Findings Local Power Company provides electrical service with a capacity of 110/220 volts. This is a two family house and the service entrance is overhead on left side of the house. Drip loop was seen at masthead. Drip loop reduces rainwater seeping down through service cable inside the panel. Service cable is exposed to weather and is in good condition. Two meters are located at exterior wall on left side of the house. Main panels are located in basement. Service conductor is 100 amps, connected to a main disconnect switch. Electric distribution system is very confusing as panels are not labeled. Branch circuit wiring is copper, BX, Romex. Panel is grounded on water main on street side. Secure loose and hanging light fixtures in basement and second floor apartment rooms. Number of outlets in 1 st and 2 nd floor apartment rooms are inadequate. Most of the outlets in first floor apartment are hidden behind furniture and storage and could not be inspected or tested. Most of the outlets in 2 nd floor apartment has reversed polarity and must be corrected. Install weather proof cover on exterior light bulbs.

17 Heating, water heater and Chimney Fuel type Heat type, Brand Zone Location Chimney Air-conditioning Gas Steam One zone Basement Brick Introduction A steam system uses a boiler to generate steam. A steam boiler is partially filled with waterusually three quarters. The rest is air. The water is heated until it becomes steam, which then rises in the pipes (without the aid of pump) until it reaches the radiators. Air in the radiators is expelled through air vents. When the steam comes in contact with the radiator it turns back into water and returns to the boiler. A steam system does not need pumps or fans to circulate steam, a decided advantage. Furthermore, because no water remains in the pipes when the system is at rest, there will be no frozen pipes. The disadvantage of this type of system is that it is slow to respond to a call for heat. Some older systems take from 20 to 30 minutes to fully build up enough steam to heat a large house.

18 Findings (2), One zone, gas fired steam boiler is centrally located in basement. Both the boilers are approx. 16 yrs old, in satisfactory condition and within its useful life. Front cover and heat shield of both boilers were removed and noted that the cast iron sections are in satisfactory condition, free from leaks, rust or corrosion. Boilers were running at the time of inspection. Burners are properly secured and the color of the flame was blue. Water level in glass gauge assembly was ½. Safety device such as low water cutoff was seen. Steam boiler should be drained every two weeks from the blow valve of low water cutoff, until clear water comes out. Automatic water feeder is functional. Distribution of steam is done via overhead steel pipes. Pipes are hidden behind walls and ceiling. Emergency switch located at boilers are functional. All habitable rooms are heated with cast iron sectional radiators. Inspection, detection or testing of underground oil tanks are not part of our services. Please contact real estate agent or seller for more information. Water Heater (2) 40 gallons, gas fired water heater is centrally located in basement, adjacent to the heating unit. (1) Water heater is very old and non-functional. A typical hot water heater lasts for years under normal working conditions. Other water heater is only 40 gallons and service (3) bathrooms and (3) kitchens that is considered as inadequate. Discharge tube of TPR valve is missing and must be installed as it is considered as safety hazard. Proper size pipe should be installed, to prevent someone from scalding. Grey water heater has major rusts and corrosion at base (see pic). In my opinion both water heaters should be replaced.

19 Flues and Chimneys All the boilers, furnaces, water heaters and fireplaces must be connected with a flue pipe to the chimney. This flue pipe exhausts dangerous and toxic gases to the atmosphere. Leakage of these gases inside the house can be fatal. Findings The steam boiler and water heater are properly connected to the flue pipes. The flue pipe terminates in the chimney and carries dangerous gases such as carbon dioxide. No corrosion or rust in flue pipes was noted. The flues pipes are properly fastened to the unit and the chimney. Carbon monoxide water heater and boiler was zero ppm. The chimney and flue pipes should be vacuum and cleaned by a professional, at the beginning of the heating season. All the connections are tight. The pitch of the flue pipe to the chimney is good. A slight pitch towards chimney will allow the proper discharge of the gases, since hot air rises. Chimney flue was beyond our inspection.

20 Plumbing The major portion of the plumbing system is concealed behind the walls and below the floors. Nevertheless, the part of the plumbing system that is accessible for inspection is sufficient to make a meaningful evaluation of its condition. A basic plumbing system consists of a water supply source distribution piping, fixtures, drainage piping, and a waste disposal system. Water is supplied to the property line from the street water mains of the local water company through iron pipe. Distribution piping supplies water to the various fixtures by means of a two-component system; supply mains and fixture risers. The risers, for the most part, are concealed behind walls. The visible portions of these systems are made of copper. Plumbing fixtures are located at the end of distribution pipes and the beginning of the drainage system. The interior drain line is a series of cast iron or vinyl pipes which are connected to the various fixtures. The waste is channeled through the discharge drainpipes. Findings Water main is located in the basement. Incoming pipe service material could not be determined. Shutoff valve is rusted due to normal aging process and was not operated, since it is not considered as a normal operating device. Distribution is ¾ copper regulated by shutoff valve. Internal piping is mixture of copper, brass and galvanized. Upgrade brass and galvanized piping to copper. Cold and hot water was turned on for two minutes at all plumbing fixtures and water pressure is satisfactory. Repair leaking shower faucet for basement bathtub. Waste piping is PVC, galvanized. Rusts and corrosion on galvanized pipe fittings due to age was noted. Water drains properly from all plumbing fixtures. P traps were seen under all plumbing fixtures. Gas piping is black steel, running from meter to the major appliances. Meter is properly secured to yoke. Gas piping is properly secured to the ceiling joists by hangers. No gas leaks were detected at boiler, water heater or dryer.

21 Interior Most houses built since the 1950s use plasterboard (known as drywall, gypsum board, sheetrock, rock, etc.) on walls and ceilings. Plasterboard is made by fabricating a sandwich of the gypsum mineral between two layers of paper. Usually it is 4' wide and either 8' or 12' long. Thickness ranges from 1/4" to 5/8". Fire-rated and moistureresistant plasterboard also are available. Plasterboard is durable and will accommodate considerable flexing when the house settles if movement is slow. A number of improved varieties of plasterboard are beginning to appear that promise to make the material even more durable and exceptionally fireproof. Plaster (as distinguished from plasterboard) may be gypsum plaster, but walls and ceilings in the United States usually were plastered with lime plaster before about Portland cement-based compounds are used for stucco, but rarely are used to plaster the interior of homes in the U.S. Repair of large surface areas should use patching compounds that are Compatible with the original materials. Plaster was applied over thin boards in the old days. Such wood-lath plaster almost always cracks and the cracks usually cannot be permanently repaired. Plaster can be several times as strong as typical concrete. However, usually it is much weaker, and even a 2% moisture content can reduce its strength by half. If wetted by a leak in the roof, it can fail quickly, so keep it dry. If wood-lath plaster pulls loose from the ceiling, total removal and replacement probably will be necessary. Loose plaster on the ceiling is a safety hazard. Failing ceilings sometimes are hidden with drop ceilings using metal rails that hold acoustical panel inserts. They aren t strong and will allow failing plaster to fall through to the floor (or your head, which ever comes first). Moisture changes also cause expansion and contraction of wood framing, a common cause of nail pops of the nails used to fasten plasterboard to the structure. A nail pop is a bump where the nail head stays out (and ugly) when the wood underneath dries and shrinks. Expansion and contraction of finish materials also may cause nail pops. Nail pops are Especially common in new houses that use juvenile wood or wood that was not thoroughly dried prior to use. Poorly braced houses that shake in the wind may produce excessive nail pops, but most nail pops do not indicate significant structural distress. Findings The subject property is a two family house. Both apartments are built on top each other and have living room, three bedrooms, kitchen and bathroom. Condition of interior is satisfactory. Walls are plastered or sheetrock painted. Drop ceiling in first floor is water damaged due to previous leaks. Windows are vinyl sash, double hung with thermal pane, in satisfactory condition. Replace old wooden windows in two rooms of first floor apartment. Deflection and sags in flooring indicates a normal settlement. Staircase going from first to second floor and second to attic is wooden in sturdy condition. Replace missing banisters. Main entrance door to the house is metal in satisfactory condition. Basement is finished and converted into rooms and a bathroom. Condition of basement is satisfactory. Expect hidden defects related to plumbing, heating, electrical or structural since the property is approx 100 years old. Ensure that the house meets local or state ordinances and proper certificate of occupancy is obtained prior to closing. First floor apartment habitable rooms were packed with storage and furniture and hence inspection in corners and floors was limited. Please check with the local fire department regarding the regulations of smoke detector. A carbon monoxide detector is always recommended in the living area.

30 Important Consumer Information Regarding the Scope and Limitations of the Inspection Please read this entire page as it is part of this report. This report is not a guarantee or warranty as to the absence of wood destroying insects nor is it a structural integrity report. The inspector s training and experience do not qualify the inspector in damage evaluation or any other building construction technology and/or repair. 1. About the Inspection: A visual inspection was conducted in the readily accessible areas of the structure(s) indicated (see Page 1) including attics and crawlspaces which permitted entry during the inspection. The inspection included probing and/or sounding of unobstructed and accessible areas to determine the presence or absence of visual evidence of wood destroying insects. The WDI inspection firm is not responsible to repair any damage or treat any infestation at the structure(s) inspected, except as may be provided by separate contract. Also, wood destroying insect infestation and/or damage may exist in concealed or inaccessible areas. The inspection firm cannot guarantee that any wood destroying insect infestation and/or damage disclosed by this inspection represents all of the wood destroying insect infestation and/or damage which may exist as of the date of the inspection. For purposes of this inspection, wood destroying insects include: termites, carpenter ants, carpenter bees, and reinfesting wood boring beetles. This inspection does not include mold, mildew or noninsect wood destroying organisms. This report shall be considered invalid for purposes of securing a mortgage and/or settlement of property transfer if not used within ninety (90) days from the date of inspection. This shall not be construed as a 90-day warranty. There is no warranty, express or implied, related to this report unless disclosed as required by state regulations or a written warranty or service agreement is attached. 2. Treatment Recommendation Guidelines Regarding Subterranean Termites: FHA and VA require treatment when any active infestation of subterranean termites is found. If signs of subterranean termites but no activity are found in a structure that shows no evidence of having been treated for subterranean termites in the past, then a treatment should be recommended. A treatment may also be recommended for a previously treated structure showing evidence of subterranean termites but no activity if there is no documentation of a liquid treatment by a licensed pest control company within the previous five years unless the structure is presently under warranty or covered by a service agreement with a licensed pest control company. 3. Obstructions and Inaccessible Areas: No inspection was made in areas which required the breaking apart or into, dismantling, removal of any object, including but not limited to: moldings, floor coverings, wall coverings, siding, fixed ceilings, insulation, furniture, appliances, and/or personal possessions; nor were areas inspected which were obstructed or inaccessible for physical access on the date of inspection. Your inspector may write out inaccessible areas or use the key in Section IV. Crawl spaces, attics, and/or other areas may be deemed inaccessible if the opening to the area is not large enough to provide physical access for the inspector or if a ladder was required for access. Crawl spaces (or portions thereof) may also be deemed inaccessible if there is less than 24 inches of clearance from the bottom of the floor joists to the surface below. If any area which has been reported as inaccessible is made accessible, the inspection company may be contacted for another inspection. An additional fee may apply. 4. Consumer Maintenance Advisory Regarding Integrated Pest Management for Prevention of Wood Destroying Insects. Any structure can be attacked by wood destroying insects. Homeowners should be aware of and try to eliminate conditions which promote insect infestation in and around their structure(s). Factors which may lead to wood destroying insect infestation include: earth to wood contact, foam insulation at foundation in contact with soil, faulty grade, improper drainage, firewood against structure(s), insufficient ventilation, moisture, wood debris in crawlspace, wood mulch or ground cover in contact with the structure, tree branches touching structure(s), landscape timbers and wood decay. Should these or other conditions exist, corrective measures should be taken in order to reduce the chances of infestation of wood destroying insects and the need for treatment. 5. Neither the inspecting company nor the inspector has had, presently has, or contemplates having any interest in the property inspected.
