What's Included In A Home Inspection?
A home inspection is an examination of a house or property either before it’s listed by the homeowner or before it is purchased by the home buyer.
Our professional inspector will check the roof, plumbing, electrical system, heating, and air conditioning system, windows, and doors for security. They will also inspect the foundation for cracks in the concrete slabs which can lead to water penetration problems.
The inspectors are trained to identify any potential issues that could be costly repairs down the road if left unchecked.
Find a breakdown below of what is included in a home inspection.
A large part of buying a home is wanting to be safe from the weather. This starts with the roof. The inspection of the roof includes the roof coverings, gutters, downspouts, flashings, chimney, vents, skylights, roof penetrations, as well as the general structure, and condition.
Your home is more than what you see every day. That is why our home inspectors look at the insulation and ventilation of unfinished spaces and any potential issues. These include, but are not limited to, attics, crawlspaces, foundation areas, exhaust systems.
The exterior of your home is more than just how it looks. You also want to make sure it is protecting you against the elements. The exterior part of the home inspection will include siding, exterior doors, flashing & trim, windows, walkways, stairs, drainage, patios & decks, driveways.
The foundation is just that, the foundation. Without a quality foundation, it all falls apart. Our inspectors will look for foundation movement, cracks, structural concerns, and any indications of water penetration.
During the summer months, you don’t want to be stuck without cooling. That is why our home inspector will look at the condition of the properties cooling system. They will locate the thermostat, energy source and will identify the type of cooling system you have.
Similar to the cooling systems, the heating systems are also important. Especially when the temperature drops on those cold winter nights. So we will also check on the condition of the heating system, location of the thermostat, energy source, and identify heating system.
You know the danger of fire and smoke. That is why we inspect the visible portions of the fireplace & chimneys, lintels, damper doors, clean-out doors, and frames.
Aside from the fireplace, issues with your electrical system are atop the main sources for house fires, and other issues. Our home inspections include the service drop. (This is where the electrical company connects to your property.) As well as the conductors, service head and mast, electrical main, panel-boards, ground switches, outlets, and the presence of smoke alarms, and carbon monoxide detectors.

Our inspector will check the main water & fuel supply shut-off valves, water heater, toilets, interior water supply, sinks, showers, bath-tubs, drains, as well as waste, and ventilation systems.
The rest of the house falls under this category. This typically includes doors, windows, ceilings, walls, floors, stairs, railings, garage doors, and openers.
