    *We do not inspect pier and beam foundations.

    **The Inspector is not required to and may not physically walk on some roof surfaces. Those than can not be physicall walked on will be inspected from a ladder at the edge of the roof (if the inspector deems this safe using a 20-ft. ladder), and through the use of binoculars while standing on the ground. The Inspector is not required to determine or report the age or life expectancy of any roof coverings. Roofs that cannot be accessed directly by the inspector may have defects that are not visible from the ground or roof’s edge.

    Additionally, some roofs are just too steep to mount and dismount without OSHA-approved safety harnesses (PPE). That said, we have binoculars and cameras with zoom lenses that permit us to see most defects on a roof from across the street.

    ***Crawl spaces will be inspected depending on access and safety. The inspector will determine if the crawl space will be inspected upon arrival.
