Attic, Insulation & Ventilation Inspection

Axiom will inspect:

  • insulation in unfinished spaces, including attics, crawlspaces and foundation areas;
  • ventilation of unfinished spaces, including attics, crawlspaces and foundation areas; and
  • mechanical exhaust systems in the kitchen, bathrooms and laundry area.
  • We will describe:

  • the type of insulation observed; and
  • the approximate average depth of insulation observed at the unfinished attic floor area or roof structure.

    We will report as in need of correction:

  • the general absence of insulation or ventilation in unfinished spaces.
  • What is not inspected or required (see Standards of Practice):

  • enter the attic or any unfinished spaces that are not readily accessible, or where entry could cause damage or, in the inspector's opinion, pose a safety hazard.
  • move, touch or disturb insulation.
  • break or otherwise damage the surface finish or weather seal on or around access panels or covers.
  • identify the composition or R-value of insulation material.
  • activate thermostatically operated fans.
  • determine the types of materials used in insulation or wrapping of pipes, ducts, jackets, boilers or wiring.
  • determine the adequacy of ventilation.
