  • 5. 2700 Graceland St Chevy Chase MD 20800 Structural ReportAll directional references to left, right, front, or rear assume the reader is standing in the street, facing the front doors ofthe building being referenced. The following opinion is based on an inspection of the visible portion of the foundationand structural components. Masonry foundation walls commonly develop minor settlement or shrinkage cracks overtime, and should be caulked or sealed as part of ongoing maintenance. Any cracks that are significant in the opinion ofthe inspector are discussed below. Periodic entry of ground water should be expected at basement walls during times ofprolonged rainfall. As a first attempt to remedy, check the grading and water runoff around the perimeter of the housefor needed improvements. This report is not intended as a termite clearance. We recommend you obtain the services ofa licensed pest control operator to determine the presence of any termite infestation. Your inspector probes arepresentative number of structural components where deterioration is suspected or where clear indications of possibledeterioration exist. Probing is not required when probing would damage any finished surface or where no deteriorationis visible. This report is not intended to provide any engineering or architectural service or to offer an opinion as to theadequacy of any structural system or component.STRUCTURAL COMPONENTS: FOUNDATION: Foundation Type- Monolithic footing, poured as a thickened edge of the floor slab.

Roof surfaces are walked-on where conditions permitwithout danger to roof damage, unless noted otherwise below. For an accurate cost on what repairs or replacement costwill be, a licensed and insured roofing contractor should be called. All roof coverings require periodic maintenance andshould be visually inspected once a year. Buyers are encouraged to ask sellers about the history of roof service and thepresence of any prior or current roof leaks, particularly where stains are noted. Roof mounted antennas or otheraccessories often loosen with age and should be checked periodically.

  • 14. 2700 Graceland St Chevy Chase MD 20800 Plumbing ReportIt is not within the scope of this report to determine whether water supply and waste disposal systems are public orprivate or the quantity or quality of the water supply. We recommend you verify these items with the seller. Theoperational effectiveness of any installed water treatment equipment cannot be determined without laboratory testing.Contact your local Health Department for these tests. Determination of leakage at water supply lines in an attic orstructure is limited to areas where pipes are visible and accessible. Operation of time clock motors is not verified. It isbeyond the scope of a visual inspection to determine the total extent of damage to underlying or surrounding materialswhere tile damage or moisture intrusion is present. Any cost estimates offered are based on visual observations at thetime of inspection and will naturally increase where additional damage is found during the course of repairs. Safety andshut-off valves are not operated during the inspection, for fear of causing subsequent leakage at valve stem packings, acommon occurrence.

  • 20. 2700 Graceland St Chevy Chase MD 20800 Heating ReportThe best preventative maintenance for heaters is regular cleaning or changing of air filters, at least every 90 days. Heatexchangers contained in most forced air type systems require annual inspection by factory trained personnel who cantest for the presence of damage and/or dangerous fumes in the heated air supply. Make inquiry with the seller to insurethe heating equipment has been inspected within the last year and obtain another service call if the written results of thelast inspection are not available. Operation of time clock motors is not verified. Gas pilot lights are not lit during theinspection. This inspection report is not intended to address the condition of specialized system components such ashumidifiers or dehumidifiers, electronic air filters and solar space heating systems, due to their technical nature. Weoffer no opinion on heating supply adequacy or distribution balance of air flow, as both are subjective measures.GENERAL COMMENTS: The furnace and water room appears to be a bit small to provide adequate make-up air for the appliances combustion and exhaust dilution air needs. Both appliances were gas fired and are vented through the chimney. Recommend calling a licensed HVAC contractor for further evaluation and correction as needed. MAIN FUEL SHUT-OFF VALVE LOCATION: Exterior, at the right side of the house.

  • 21. 2700 Graceland St Chevy Chase MD 20800 Air Conditioning ReportThe best preventative maintenance for air conditioners is regular cleaning or changing of air filters, at least every 90days. Evaporator cooling coils periodically need cleaning by an air conditioning contractor to insure optimumperformance. Operation of time clock motors is not verified. Gas pilot lights are not lit during the inspection. Thisinspection report is not intended to address the condition of specialized system components such as electronic air filters,due to their technical nature. We offer no opinion on cooling supply adequacy or distribution balance of air flow, as bothare subjective measures.GENERAL COMMENTS: On gas fired central HVAC systems, the evaporator coil fins are not viewed as the cabinet is difficult to open up. The usual maintenance practice is to have the system fully cleaned and serviced by a licensed professional for the older machines. The level of soil on the fan unit is also considered when recommending cleaning.INSTALLED CENTRAL COOLING EQUIPMENT: PRIMARY UNIT: System Type- Split System, Energy Source- Electricity, OBSERVATIONS- The cooling system was older. Less than 10F degrees drop in cooling temperature was noted after more than 30 minutes of testing. Call a licensed HVAC contractor for further evaluation, servicing and repairs. Page 21
  • 22. 2700 Graceland St Chevy Chase MD 20800 Interior ReportMost small cracks at interior walls & ceilings are minor and should be considered as cosmetic flaws. Repair includespatching and caulking, then painting. Where practical, your inspector will use a moisture meter to determine the statusof visible stained areas. Cosmetic items such as paint, wallpaper and other finish treatments, including carpeting andwindow coverings, are not the subject of this inspection. Your inspector checks a representative number of doors andwindows and a representative number of installed cabinets during his inspection of the building interior. No effort ismade to move occupants personal belongings, furniture, rugs, plants or ceiling tiles during the inspection. The presenceof these items often restricts viewing at interior areas.GENERAL COMMENTS: SAFETY GLAZING: OBSERVATIONS- Components appear serviceable.INTERIOR COMPONENTS: WALLS: OBSERVATIONS- Components appear serviceable.
