Attic Components

Attic Components

Inspection of the attic typically includes visual examination the following:roof structure (framing and sheathing); roof structure ventilation; thermal envelope; electrical components (wiring, junction boxes, outlets, switches and lighting); plumbing components (supply and vent pipes, bathroom vent terminations) and HVAC components (drip pans, ducts, condensate and TPR discharge pipes)

In accordance with our standards, we do not attempt to enter attics that have less than thirty-six inches of headroom, are restricted by ducts, or in which the insulation obscures the joists and thereby makes mobility hazardous, in which case we would inspect them as best we can from the access point. In regard to evaluating the type and amount of insulation on the attic floor, we use only generic terms and approximate measurements, and do not sample or test the material for specific identification. Also, we do not disturb or move any portion of it, and it may well obscure water pipes, electrical conduits, junction boxes, exhaust fans, and other components.
