On the pre-pour inspection we are checking to make sure that what is on the ground matches what is on the blueprint for the home. We are especially focused on the items of structural integrity and compliance to local municipal codes. We are checking for debris or roots in excavation, integrity of vapor barrier, straightness, sleeving, and appropriate spacing of post-tensioning cables, grade beam wall dimensions, proper sleeving and installation of rough plumbing penetrations, apparent form brace strength, proper sill anchor installation and spacing, and reinforcing bar patterns, to verify installations are in accordance with the engineering plan and specifications.
The content of this report is based solely upon "eyeball" observations of apparent performance. Opinions have been formed from the inspector's personal knowledge and experience and not upon any code requirements and/or performance standards. Compliance with any federal, state or local codes and/or other legal requirements is not within the scope or intent of this report
The inspection methodology has not been of a formal engineered type of inspection; therefore, no soil, physical or geological testing or inspections were performed. Many of the structural, electrical, plumbing, and mechanical components were judged indirectly by the visible condition of the surfaces and/or components open to view. Observations were made both inside as well as outside of the structure; however, these observations were limited to only those areas open to view without moving any item, i.e.; inhabitants furniture, belongings or stored items which was blocking the view.
The visual inspection method employed will generally produce a competent first impression assessment of the apparent past structural, electrical, plumbing, and mechanical components, provided refurbishing repairs have not been performed which would mask distress patterns normally produce by structural, electrical, plumbing, and mechanical components problems.
