A home inspection gives you an unbiased, professional assessment of the condition of the home that you are considering to purchase. The inspector inspects all accessible areas and components of the home, and then you receive a report that outlines any damage, non-functioning components, or necessary repairs. The information contained in the report can help you decide to purchase the home, renegotiate the sale price, ask the seller to make repairs, or walk away.
What Does a Home Inspection Include?
The professional home inspector visually investigates all aspects of a home, starting with the structural components like the foundation and framing. Exterior elements, including siding, garage doors, tread steps, and caulking, are all inspected for faults and deterioration, which can cause water seepage. Plumbing issues can run up major price tags, and we test the piping, drains, and waste systems for leakage. The HVAC and electrical systems are also checked for corrosion and operational safety. The condition of the roof and attic space, including the insulation, will be examined, checking for water condensation or evidence of leaks and proper ventilation, and the inspector will survey the ceiling and walls for water damage, particularly near any light fixtures. Any cracks in the floors are also noted.
