You can add another category to your report.

I added "Exterior Walkways" "Driveway" to the report behind where "Porch(s) is located.

Remember, you can always add to the TREC report, you cannot take away from it.

By the way, I wouldn't call it "exterior flooring".

I've always used this for exterior pavement features, retaining walls, fencing...and wrote the item I was describing

K. Other Item Comment:

I agree with Rick, how did you come up with "exterior flooring" for sidewalks or walkpaths?

I had always put these under "Exterior Grading and Drainage" with notations regarding the sepcific features such as;

Retaining walls
Trees too close to foundation
RailingsI've never done it, but I wonder if it could be done to create another section 'L' under Structural Systems as "OTHER EXTERIOR COMPONENTS"

If a report is ever questioned or reviewed under the TREC Complaint process it will go to Enforcement- enforce@trec.state.tx.us
If you have further questions about reporting or the 7A-0 Report I would contact General Council- DevonB@trec.state.tx.us
She has always replied to my e-mails in a very timely manner.

Good advice form Barry, just to be safe!

I am with Richard and put pathway issues under grading and drainage section just as I would if there were a depression or hole in the soil/yard that might be a trip hazard. IMO, I think that as long as you call it out clearly as a repair item, any of the sections mentioned above would be o.k. but I am not on the TREC committee!

Interior stairways should be under the floor and ceiling section.

I put all comments and issues regarding "Paved surfaces" under grading and drainage. Since the SoP doesn't really define what to put under grading and drainage I figure sidewalks, driveways, and other paved surfaces have an affect on site drainage (pro or con).
