Report Summary
                                                     Report Summary


         Final Walk-Through: This report is a snapshot in time, at the time and date of the inspection. Conditions in a
 house can change at any time, for any number of reasons (think about your vehicle suddenly breaking down!). For this
 reason, we recommend a complete walk-through of the vacant house before closing. If you or your representative are
 not available for such a walk through (or if you would like a professional to accompany you), we ask that you provide us
 with 3 days notice. This service is available to all of our clients for a nominal fee.

         Structures that are occupied and fully or partially furnished at the time of the inspection many times prevent
 home inspectors from seeing everything, testing everything, or having access to everything. Concealed defects are not
 within the scope of the home inspection. Along with defects that we might not have noted due to such conditions, since
 the structure is still being lived in and used, additional deferred maintenance items may be present by the time escrow
 closes. Recommend careful observation during final walk-through and before close of escrow.

         This report is not a guaranty or warranty. Anything can fail at any time. This inspection report is only reporting on
 the conditions as observed at the time of the inspection, and is not intended to be considered as a guaranty or warranty,
 expressed or implied, of the adequacy of, or performance of, systems or structures, or their component parts, or of their
 remaining life expectancy or usefulness. Systems, equipment and components can, and do, fail randomly and without
 prior warning.

        Have you read the complete report? It provides safety and maintenance information as well as common
 problems and methods for addressing those common problems. It also tells you what I did and did not do, what I could
 and could not do, and what I would and would not do if personal safety or property damage was involved. If you don’t
 understand something, or if I did not make myself clear, please contact me

         Also feel free to visit my web site at www.waypointinspection.com And, finally, THANK YOU for entrusting us with
 the inspection your new home!

                                                   Grounds
          Proper grading is important to keep water away from the foundation. Soil should slope approximately 1 inch per
 foot in a direction away from the building for at least 6 feet to prevent problems caused by excess water. Excess water
 here can cause settlement of soil and lead to cracking of the foundations and walls and water entry into the building.
 The water discharged from the roof gutters and downspouts should be directed away from the foundation for the same
 reason.

         The report is not intended to be conclusive regarding the life span of the roofing system or how long it will
 remain watertight in the future. The inspection and report are based on visible and apparent conditions at the time of the
 inspection. Unless rain has fallen just prior to the inspection, it may not be possible to determine if active leakage is
 occurring. In most homes, not all attic areas are readily accessible for inspections. Conclusions made by the inspector
 do not constitute a warrant, guaranty, or policy of insurance.

        We recommend that you ask the seller about the presence of any roof leaks, including past leakage. If repairs
 are needed a qualified tradesman should make them.

       All roofs require periodic maintenance to achieve typical life spans and should be inspected annually. Expect to
 make minor repairs to any roof.

                                          Interior Features
         Molds are fungi that can be found both indoors and outdoors. Molds grow best in warm, damp and humid
 conditions and spread and reproduce by making spores. Mold spores can survive harsh environmental conditions, such
 as dry conditions, that do not support normal mold growth.

        Molds are found in virtually every environment and can be detected, both indoors and outdoors, year round.
 Mold growth is encouraged by warm and humid conditions. Outdoors they can be found in shady, damp areas or places
 where leaves or other vegetation is decomposing. Indoors they can be found where humidity levels are high, such as
 basements or showers or where water leaks into the building.

         Some people are sensitive to molds. For these people, exposure to molds can cause symptoms such as nasal
 stuffiness, eye irritation, wheezing and or skin irritation. Some people, such as those with serious allergies to molds, may
 have more severe reactions. Severe reactions may occur among workers exposed to large amounts of molds in
 occupational settings, such as farmers working around moldy hay. Severe reactions may include fever and shortness of
 breath. Some people with chronic lung illnesses, such as obstructive lung disease, may develop mold infections in their
 lungs.

          Sensitive individuals should avoid areas that are likely to have mold, such as compost piles, cut grass, and
 wooded areas. Inside homes, mold growth can be slowed by keeping humidity levels between 40% and 60%, and
 ventilating shower and cooking areas. If there is mold growth in your home, you should clean up the mold and fix the
 water problem. Mold growth can be removed from hard surfaces with commercial products, soap and water, or a weak
 bleach solution (1 cup of bleach in a gallon of water).

         To reduce the possibility of mold growth, keep the humidity level in the house between 40% and 60%. Use an air
 conditioner or dehumidifier during humid months. Be sure that the home has adequate ventilation, including exhaust
 fans. Add mold inhibitors to paints before applications. Clean bathrooms with mold killing products. Do not carpet
 bathrooms and basements. Remove or replace previously soaked carpets and upholstery.

         We do not inspect or test for the presence or absence of mold. Generally, it is not necessary to identify the
 species of mold growing in a residence, and CDC and EPA do not recommend routine sampling for molds. Current
 evidence indicates that allergies are the type of diseases most often associated with molds. Since the susceptibility of
 individuals can vary greatly either because of the amount or type of mold, sampling and culturing are not reliable in
 determining your health risk. Consult your doctor.

         If you are susceptible to mold and mold is seen or smelled, there is a potential health risk, therefore, no matter
 what type of mold is present, you should arrange for it's removal. Furthermore, reliable sampling for mold can be
 expensive and standards for judging what is and wat is not an acceptable and tolerable quantity of mold have not been
 established.

         For further current information regarding the issues of mold and other indoor air contaminents we recommend
 that you visite the Center for Disease Control at http://www.cdc.gov/nceh/asthma/factsheets/molds/default.htm and EPA
 at http://www.epa.gov/iaq/molds/moldguide.html

         Observations and Recommendations

         We inspected appliances by turning them on briefly. Extensive testing of timers, thermostats and other controls
 is not performed. No report can be made regarding teh effectiveness of any appliances. (For example, it is impossible to
 thoroughly check a washer and dryer without a load of clothes.) The inspection only determines whether or not the
 appliances run.

         We recommend that you purchase a warranty or service contract to cover the cost of the replacement.

         Discovery of recalled appliances and other products is outside the scope of this inspection. fore the latest
 information on recalls, visit http://www.pueblo.gsa.gov/recallsdesc.htm#CP and
 http://www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/prerel/prerel.html

         Refrigerator Maintenance: Regular maintenance of your refrigerator will pay for itself in terms of better efficiency
 and longer life. Refrigerators, like air conditioners, move a lot of air across the condensor coils located behind the grille
 under the door. With this air comes dust, pet hair and lint that clings to the coils, reducing their ability to DISSIPATE
 HEAT. When this happens, the compressor runs longer and cools less. This make for an inefficient appliance and
 higher electrical bills. Cleaning these coils twice a year makes a big difference and will take only minutes.

         In addition to the condensor coil, a refrigerator also has an evaporator coil or place which needs regular
 cleaning. Location of the evaporator plate (or coil) will vary. On older models, the evaporator coil is next to the
 compressor at the appliances back behind an access panel. Newer models usually have an exposed coil in the form of
 a large metal grid on the refrigerators back.

        Unplug the refrigerator before starting. Begin by lifting the grille from its place below the front door. Use a
 vacuum cleaner on the coils. If the coils are greasy, use a spray bottle and a degreasing cleaner to rinse the fins and
 tubes. Next, pull the refrigerator out so you can work on the compressor. Remove the access panel and vacuum the
 compressor and evaporator coils. Finally, replace the grille and access panel and move the refrigerator back.

        The door seal on the refrigerator should be kept clean, especially along the bottom edge where food particles
 and liquids are spilled. Spilled soda is the primary cause of deterioration of refrigerator door seals.

         Dryer Maintenance: Adequate venting of your dryer is a priority. Vents clogged with lint, or crushed/kinked vents
 can and do cause fires. The vent itself and the outlet screen should be cleaned of lint and debris twice a year. We
 recommend you clean this vent upon moving into the home. During a typical home inspection, we usually can not
 observe or evaluate any of the dryer vent. Often the dryer itself blocks our view of the vent. In most cases, much of the
 vent is hidden by finish materials such as wallboard or insulation.

           We recommend that you make sure your dryer vent is made from proper materials and is properly installed. You
 should do this before closing, when you have a good opportunity to observe the dryer vent. Here is why we make these
 recommendations: The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) estimates that in 1997, there were 16,700
 fires, 30 deaths and 430 injuries associated with clothes dryers. Some of these fires occur when the lint builds up in the
 filter or in the exhaust duct. Under certain conditions, when lint blocks the flow of air, excessive heat build up can cause
 a fire in some dryers.

         To prevent fires, close follow the manufacturers instructions for new installation. Most manufacturers specify the
 use of a rigid or flexible metal duct to provide a minimum restriction of airflow. If metal duct is not available at the retailer
 where the dryer was purchased, check other locations, such as hardware or builder supply stores. If you are having a
 dryer installed, insist upon metal duct unless the installer has verified that the manufacturer permits the use of plastic
 duct. Source: CPSC doc. #5022

                                        Electrical Features
         A ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) is a modern electrical device, either a receptacle or a circuit breaker,
 which is designed to protect people from electric shock. In the event of a fault in an appliance that you are touching, the
 current that passes through your body to ground is detected and the circuit is shut off, protecting you from potentially
 fatal shocks. GFCI devices are now required in new homes in wet or damp environments. We recommend that all
 receptacles located in the kitchen at countertop, in bathrooms, in the garage, at spas, hot tubs, fountains, pools, in crawl
 spaces, near laundry tubs and outdoors be upgraded to the Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter type by a qualified
 tradesman if not already present. This will considerably improve electrical safety for occupants of the building.

          The report should not be read as a prediction of the remaining lifespan of the system. Typical lifespans of
 equipment may range from 8-12 years, but there are many exceptions to this. Most air conditioning compressors are
 warranted for only 5 years. We recommend that you purchase a warranty or service contract to cover replacement or
 repair. Be advised that defects or failure can occur at any time, and that the inspection in no way lessens the risk or
 likelihood of repairs
          or replacements being needed at any time in the future, including the day after the inspection. Any mechanical
 equipment can fail without warning at any time.

         We recommend that all equipment be serviced twice a year. Regular service is very important for efficient
 operation and to achieve maximum lifespan. Filters in forced air system should be changed monthly.

                                                 Bathrooms
    Bathrooms can consist of many features from jacuzzi tubs and showers to toilets and bidets. Because of all the
 plumbing involved it is an important area of the house to look over. Moisture in the air and leaks can cause mildew,
 wallpaper and paint to peel, and other problems. The home inspector will identify as many issues as possible but some
 problems may be undetectable due to problems within the walls or under the flooring..          Molds are fungi that can be
 found both indoors and outdoors. Molds grow best in warm, damp and humid conditions and spread and reproduce by
 making spores. Mold spores can survive harsh environmental conditions, such as dry conditions, that do not support
 normal mold growth.


        Molds are found in virtually every environment and can be detected, both indoors and outdoors, year round.
 Mold growth is encouraged by warm and humid conditions. Outdoors they can be found in shady, damp areas or places
 where leaves or other vegetation is decomposing. Indoors they can be found where humidity levels are high, such as
 basements or showers or where water leaks into the building.


         Some people are sensitive to molds. For these people, exposure to molds can cause symptoms such as nasal
 stuffiness, eye irritation, wheezing and or skin irritation. Some people, such as those with serious allergies to molds, may
 have more severe reactions. Severe reactions may occur among workers exposed to large amounts of molds in
 occupational settings, such as farmers working around moldy hay. Severe reactions may include fever and shortness of
 breath. Some people with chronic lung illnesses, such as obstructive lung disease, may develop mold infections in their
 lungs.


          Sensitive individuals should avoid areas that are likely to have mold, such as compost piles, cut grass, and
 wooded areas. Inside homes, mold growth can be slowed by keeping humidity levels between 40% and 60%, and
 ventilating shower and cooking areas. If there is mold growth in your home, you should clean up the mold and fix the
 water problem. Mold growth can be removed from hard surfaces with commercial products, soap and water, or a weak
 bleach solution (1 cup of bleach in a gallon of water).


         To reduce the possibility of mold growth, keep the humidity level in the house between 40% and 60%. Use an air
 conditioner or dehumidifier during humid months. Be sure that the home has adequate ventilation, including exhaust
 fans. Add mold inhibitors to paints before applications. Clean bathrooms with mold killing products. Do not carpet
 bathrooms and basements. Remove or replace previously soaked carpets and upholstery.


         We do not inspect or test for the presence or absence of mold. Generally, it is not necessary to identify the
 species of mold growing in a residence, and CDC and EPA do not recommend routine sampling for molds. Current
 evidence indicates that allergies are the type of diseases most often associated with molds. Since the susceptibility of
 individuals can vary greatly either because of the amount or type of mold, sampling and culturing are not reliable in
 determining your health risk. Consult your doctor.

         If you are susceptible to mold and mold is seen or smelled, there is a potential health risk, therefore, no matter
 what type of mold is present, you should arrange for it's removal. Furthermore, reliable sampling for mold can be
 expensive and standards for judging what is and wat is not an acceptable and tolerable quantity of mold have not been
 established.

         For further current information regarding the issues of mold and other indoor air contaminents we recommend
 that you visite the Center for Disease Control at http://www.cdc.gov/nceh/asthma/factsheets/molds/default.htm and EPA

 1. General Notes
 Observations:
 • The inspection on this house revealed mostly cosmetic and maintenance items that will require
 attention after closing.

 It was noted that the house was designed to have a surround sound/stereo system installed
 through the house including the exterior pool area and front patio. It appears that the speakers
 have either never been installed or removed prior to the previous owner moving out.

 We recommend that you hire a qualified tradesman to perform the repairs and installation of items
 in the house.
