The heating and cooling system of this building was inspected and reported on with the above information. While the inspector makes every effort to find all areas of concern, some areas can go unnoticed. The inspection is not meant to be technically exhaustive. The inspection does not involve removal and inspection behind service door or dismantling that would otherwise reveal something only a licensed heat contractor would discover. Please be aware that the inspector has your best interest in mind. Any repair items mentioned in this report should be considered before purchase. It is recommended that qualified contractors be used in your further inspection or repair issues as it relates to the comments in this inspection report.

Comments:
9.0 Copper, Galvanized, ABS and Cast Iron drains
9.1 Majority of water supply is copper although there was some galvanized piping located in Commercial area basements.
9.2 Hot water tanks are majority rental and are located though out complex.
The plumbing in the building was inspected and reported on with the above information. While the inspector makes every effort to find all areas of concern, some areas can go unnoticed. Washing machine drain line for example cannot be checked for leaks or the ability to handle the volume during drain cycle. Older homes with galvanized supply lines or cast iron drain lines can be obstructed and barely working during an inspection but then fails under heavy use. If the water is turned off or not used for periods of time (like a vacant building waiting for closing) rust or deposits within the pipes can further clog the piping system. Please be aware that the inspector has your best interest in mind. Any repair items mentioned in this report should be considered before purchase. It is recommended that qualified contractors be used in your further inspection or repair issues as it relates to the comments in this inspection report.

IN=Inspected, NI=Not Inspected, NP=Not Present, RR=Repair or Replace
 
Comments:
25.0.A There are basically four main roofs with various products used.
  1. Rolled asphalt roofing has been used on rear roof and some smaller roof additions.
  2. Tar and gravel roof used on Clinton street rear of apartments.
  3. Shingled roof at front of Clinton street apartments.
  4. Front Street commercial roofs are rolled asphalt roofing with hot mopped tar.  Core sample would have to be taken to determine if this was original or repaired with hot tar.

Overall Condition of Roof

  1. The roof flashings on rear asphalt rolled roof and hot mopped tar have a significant amount of gaps and cracks which will allow water entry into building.
  2. The metal wall flashing at edge of roof requires to be secured and sealed.
  3. Any brick which is exposed vertically will have to be monitored and masonry joints repaired as required.
  4. Asphalt and tar has been used to protect tops of parapet walls and will also have to be monitored to ensure cracks and gaps are sealed.
  5. Chimney's that are in use should have rain caps etc installed to prevent water from entering. Cap and seal any un-used chimney's.

Comments:
25.0.B
  1. Building is two stories in height with brick veneer covering exterior of building.
  2. Bricks under Side street apartment windows have been repaired.  This is common for bricks to spall from water entry from cracks and gaps in window sills.  Preventive maintenance in this area will save the expense of replacing bricks in future. Ensure all window sills are caulked and any loose mortar is removed and repaired.  Water will damage brick if allowed to attack from a vertical entry point.
  3. Recommend sealing grate at Coffee Shop sidewalk as it seems to have been an entry point for water in past and probably will again.
  4. Rear wood balconies should be better maintained and painted.
  5. Seal any large cracks in concrete to prevent water entry and expansion due to freezing. This is particularly noticeable in walkway under balconies of apartments.
  6. Rear addition to Front Street restaurant is poorly constructed with exterior finish not being completed.
  7. Front wood trim on bay windows on Front Street apartments requires maintenance and painting.
  8. Left side of Mexican restaurant has A/C water dripping on brick which will eventually cause significant damage.
  9. Left side exterior wood door finish is deteriorating and eventually door will require replacement.
  10. There are a number of wood windows in very poor condition.  The enclosed shaft has windows that require maintenance and painting.  Also the alleyway has windows with missing sections, cracked glass and also require maintenance and painting.

Comments:
25.0.C
  1. Some of the Commercial property bathrooms were constructed adhoc by tenants and do not meet any of today's code requirements.  There is one unit with only a toilet and no sink to wash hands after using toilet.
  2. There is some areas of galvanized piping visible in commercial units.  Typically in basements.
  3. There is some probable asbestos pipe insulation in a couple of the Commercial Units.  This would have to be tested to determine if asbestos was present.
  4. There is a older cast iron still in use in building.  Most of water supply is copper pipe.

  1. Most of visible electrical problems are due to modifications made by tenants.  The typical deficiencies found are missing electrical cover plates,  loose boxes and fittings, poorly connected electrical cables and un-secured and un-protected electrical cables.
  2. There are a number of un-used electrical wires through out commercial buildings that should be removed.  These are mainly found in the basement area.
  3. The 400 amp service panel in basement of Korean restaurant is open.  This panel is typically sealed by Toronto Hydro and should not be open.

  1. Two storey building with brick veneer exterior built on masonry brick and concrete foundation.
  2. Floor support is provided by 2 X 10 wood joists supported on brick masonry walls.
  3. Steel fire escapes are older but all appear in good condition.
     

Fire Separations

  1. Typically in Commercial Buildings there is a required fire separation between a basement, main floor and any units above.  Most of the units inspected have holes in the existing fire separation between basement and main floor.  Usually these penetrations are made for plumbing, electrical or heating access or modification.
  2. Depending on the knowledge and diligence of the fire inspectors, you could be required to repair any required fire separation between basements and main floors.
