Garage

  • There is a (y/n) or (built-in/attached/detached)________________________________________________ garage on the premises. The garage has a capacity for (#)__________ cars. The benefit of having an attached or built-in garage is that you can park the car and enter the house without worrying about the weather conditions. A detached garage is safer in the event that a car is left running by mistake, or if there is a garage fire.
  • The garage was in overall (G/A/F/P)_______________ condition. The garage doors did (y/n)__________ come down with excessive force when checked. The door springs will need to be adjusted and lubricated periodically. Doors that come down with excessive force can crush a child if they are caught underneath.
  • The electric door openers did (y/n)__________ operate properly. The automatic reverse function was tested and did (y/n)__________ operate properly. Electric door openers must have an "automatic reverse" function that is working properly. This is a setting in the opener that will stop or reverse the direction of the doors if a person or a car gets caught underneath. It must be checked periodically for safety.
  • All visible ducts and water pipes in the garage were (y/n)__________ insulated. All ducts and water pipes in the garage need to be insulated to prevent them from freezing and for maximum energy efficiency.
  • There are (y/n)__________ excessive gas and/or oil drippings on the garage floor. Any oil or gas drippings must be cleaned to help prevent any fires.
  • The garage walls and ceilings do (y/n)__________ appear to have an adequate fire resistant covering. The garage walls and ceilings must be covered with fireproof sheetrock to help prevent the spread of any fires. Masonry walls and ceilings are an acceptable fireproof covering.
  • The garage does (y/n)__________ have a fire resistant entry door leading to the house. The door does (y/n)__________ have a properly operating self-closing device. If the garage is attached or built-in there must be a fireproof entry door leading to the house. Also, this door must have a self-closing device to prevent the door from being left open so car exhaust fumes or fires cannot spread easily into the house.
