Lots and GroundsThis inspection is not intended to address or include any geological conditions or site stability information. For information concerning these conditions, a geologist or soils engineer should be consulted. Any reference to grade is limited to only areas around the exterior of the exposed foundation or exterior walls. This inspection is visual in nature and does not attempt to determine drainage performance of the site or the condition of any underground piping, including municipal water and sewer service piping or septic systems. When decks and porches are built close to the ground where no viewing or access is possible, we cannot make accurate opinions. These areas as well as others that are too low to enter, or in some other manner not accessible, are excluded from the inspection and are not addressed in this report. We routinely recommend that inquiry be made with the seller about knowledge of conditions. To alleviate water from penetrating into the foundation, walkways and other home components, the grading should slope 6 inches down to at least 10ft away from the home. Shrubs and other foliage be kept at least 1 ft away from the structure. There should be at least 8" of clearance between the soil and framework of the home. Snow cover will limit the exterior inspection, therefore we are not liable for defects not visible do to snow cover.

RoofThe Standards of Practice does not required the Inspector to go on the roof. It is at the sole discretion of the Inspector to walk the roof. A roof rating given from a ground inspection is for defects that could only be seen from the ground that are readily visible. Only the property owner would have accurate knowledge of this information. Please refer to the seller's disclosure in reference to the roof system's age, condition, prior problems, etc. The roof's age cannot be determined by the inspector. This inspection is not a warranty against future roof leaks. Even a roof that appears to be in good, functional condition may leak under certain circumstances. Inspector does not take responsibility for a roof leak that happens in the future. Roof leaks can occur at anytime during the homes existence. The age of the roof also does not guarantee it from leaking. Shingles are not lifted to inspect nailing patterns and in lifting the shingle, this breaks the seal of the shingle. Budget for a new roof and possible replacement of the underlying wood. Please note that there may be defects on the interior that are not apparent at the time of inspection. It is HIGHLY recommended that you hire a qualified chimney professional to clean, run a camera throughout the flue and components and to further evaluate for latent defects. We will not be responsible for defects found after the date of this report.

ExteriorInspection of the exterior components is limited to obvious defects at the surface. There may be latent underlying defects to the interior caused by defects on the exterior such as age, installation and product defects that may not be readily accessible during the inspection. Brick veneer siding is required to have weep holes installed at the window, door frames and above soil grade line. Insufficient or lack of weep holes is common. This is a defect and defects may exist behind the brick veneer which are not readily visible for inspection. According to the National Electric Code, outdoor receptacles must be GFCI protected. Recommend GFCI receptacles be installed by a qualified electrician.

North Exterior Surface 1. Type: Brick veneer - Cracks observed at mortar/brick exterior wall. No deflection of wall was visible

at time of inspection. Significant cracks need attention due to possible problems with wall and foundation settlement. All buildings settle with minor wall and foundation cracking visible at some point. Recommend sealing cracks to prevent moisture intrusion and additional ice damage, monitoring for further movement. Should the cracks enlarge beyond their current size, ha
