Typical Insulation & Ventilation Issues

The amount and type of insulation in attics and walls should be determined where possible. It may also be determined whether attic spaces have proper ventilation, and if attic hatches fit properly. In the attic, checks may be done for improper venting of bathroom and kitchen exhaust fans and evidence of mold on attic ceilings.

Basements are usually not properly insulated. Typical crawl spaces not only have insulation issues, but could have ventilation and moisture issues that cause wood members to rot. An inspector may also look for vermiculite insulation that may contain asbestos as well as UFFI that is not desired by some.
