The appraiser must enter the attic and observe the interior roof structure and attic for evidence of leaks, water damage, structural problems, previous fire damage, FRT sheathing, exposed and frayed wiring, deficient materials, deficient insulation and adequate ventilation by vent, fan or window. The attic must be entered, at a minimum, by head and shoulders, whether access is by pull-down stairway or scuttle. Size of scuttle and accessibility of the attic dictate the level of entry.

The appraiser is not required to disturb insulation, move personal items, furniture, equipment, plant life, soil, snow, ice or debris that obstructs access or visibility.
