The springs were missing. The door was not able to be manually lifted and tested for inspection because of this. Recommend a qualified contractor to evaluate and repair or replace as necessary.
The photo-electric reverse sensors are installed too high from the garage floor surface.
The vertical distance between the photo-eye beam and the floor should be no more than 6 inches.
The sealant was damaged and deteriorated around the window. Recommend a qualified contractor to repair or replace as necessary.
Carbon monoxide detectors were not installed within a specified distance of each room lawfully used for sleeping purposes. The inspector recommends the installation of carbon monoxide detectors in appropriate locations. Colorado House bill 1091 became effective on July 1, 2009, which requires Carbon Monoxide detectors to be installed in most properties that has a fuel-burning heater or appliance, a fireplace, or an attached garage.
There are no carbon monoxide detectors on the lower or upper levels.
The exterior of the garage door has damaged weather stripping. A qualified contractor should inspect and repair as necessary and according to current standards.
There was no ventilation (exhaust fan or openable window) In the laundry area. Normally an exhaust fan or an openable window is needed for proper ventilation. A qualified contractor should evaluate and repair or replace as necessary.
An outlet did not provide Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter (GFCI) protection. Although GFCI protection of circuits may not have been required at the time in which this home was built, safe building practices have improved with the passage of time and building standards have changed to reflect current understanding. The inspector recommends updating the existing electrical circuits to include GFCI protection. A qualified contractor should evaluate and repair or replace as necessary.
Excessive lint was built up behind the dryer area and in parts of the laundry area. The dryer vent connection may have become disconnected and should be reconnected to properly route the dryer exhaust to the exterior. Failure to reconnect the vent may result in unsatisfactory conditions from excessive humidity and lint accumulation in the home. Excessively high humidity can damage home materials or components and may encourage the growth of microbes such as mold. A qualified contractor should evaluate and repair or replace as necessary.
The toilet was loose on the floor. This condition typically is caused by loose bolts or nuts and/or missing floor seals. The loose toilet can result in leaks, water damage, and mold, as well as damage to the toilet, water supply lines, bolts, and drainage pipes. A qualified contractor should evaluate and repair or replace as necessary.
The door had a damaged or missing doorstop. A qualified contractor should evaluate and repair or replace as necessary.
Sharp screws/fasteners we used at the electrical panel cover. This could be potentially hazardous if the screws puncture a live electrical wire. A qualified contractor should evaluate and repair or replace as necessary.
The flue pipe was sealed improperly at the time of the inspection. Flue pipe connections should be sealed by 3 or more screws as most tapes (or tape adhesives) are not able to resist prolonged exposure to high heat.
A qualified contractor should evaluate and repair or replace as necessary and according to current standards.
An improper material was used for the TPR pipe. The pipe should be a heat-rated material. A qualified contractor should evaluate and repair or replace as necessary.
The water temperature was higher than the acceptable range of 120-130 degrees. We recommend adjusting the water heater thermostat.
Due to the year of manufacture, the cooling system is assumed to be near the end of its expected service life. Regular maintenance and monitoring of its condition are recommended. Budgeting for repairs and future replacement is recommended. A qualified contractor should evaluate to clean, service/repair/replace as necessary, and certify the unit if possible.

Based on the age of the cooling system it is recommended that it be cleaned and serviced and certified (if possible) by an HVAC professional.
The refrigerant lines were missing insulation and excessive condensation was present in the interior refrigerant lines near the air handler. The excess condensation appears to be dripping onto the HVAC unit. The excess condensation may cause damage and accelerated wear to the furnace and/or heating system as a whole if left uncorrected. Recommend a qualified contractor to evaluate, service, and certify the HVAC unit is in good working order prior to the closing deadline.
Surface and/or interior components of the AC condenser showed rust in areas. Recommend a qualified contractor to evaluate, service, and repair or replace as necessary.
There was a gap where the refrigerant lines enter the plenum. Recommend a qualified contractor evaluate and seal as needed.
