Every effort is made to insure the accuracy of our findings, by using the best state of the art testing equipment available, However moisture testing is not an exact science. So all elevated moisture readings should be further explored to verify the readings obtained in this report. This is not a guarantee that every anomaly or issue will be discovered. If it is determined that there is structural damage, you should protect your rights. Contact your builder in writing of the findings, and discuss your options with an attorney. If there is any part of this inspection report that you do not understand, it is your responsibility to contact us to clarify the issue. Moisture wood content readings of 6% to 15% are considered normal, levels of 16% to 19% are cautionary and could possibly indicate a low level of moisture infiltration, Levels of 20% to 100% are considered elevated and should be further explored for possible damaged sheathing, framing members, and or a fungal growth Additional copies of your report are available for $39.00Home BuilderInformational Conditions Your ContractorPrecipitationInformational Conditions No Measurable precipitation within the last 24 hoursWeep ScreedInformational Conditions There is no weep screed installed along the foundation line.Grade IssuesInformational Conditions The grade is neutral or reverse in certain areas The grade is high in certain areas of your homeKick Out FlashingInformational Conditions There are no kick out flashings installed on the roof rakes._____________________________________________________________________________________________ This report has been produced in accordance with our signed contract and is subject to the terms and conditions agreed upon therein.

All moisture readings are from the sheathing unless otherwise specified. All moisture readings are given at the location where they were taken on the photos. All readings are of wood moisture content from 6% to 100% with 6% being dry, and 100% being saturated. Moisture readings of 6% to 15% are considered to be normal, Moisture readings of 16% to 19% are considered cautionary, Moisture readings of 20% and higher can support mold growth and wood rot if sustained for more than 36 to 48 hours or more and are considered elevated and should be further evaluated. If there is an "ss" after a moisture reading on the photos, this indicates that the sheathing felt soft or deteriorated when the pin probe holes were drilled, or when the pin probes were inserted. If there is an "ns" on the photos this indicates that no sheathing was detected when the pin probe holes where drilled, and no reading was obtained, This indicates that the sheathing is deteriorated and or completely missing. If there is a reading it is generally off a framing member. If there is a "2" after the moisture reading this indicates that the reading was taken twice for accuracy.REFERENCE PHOTOSInformational Conditions The following photos are for referencing the location of the individual pin probe photos per elevation The reference photos have been removed for this sample report for privacy.FRONT ELEVATIONInformational Conditions FRONT ELEVATION PIN PROBE RESULTS Area to the left of the entry 8% 48% 7% 8% 7% 6% 7% 18% 39%_____________________________________________________________________________________________ This report has been produced in accordance with our signed contract and is subject to the terms and conditions agreed upon therein.
