What is a Home Inspection

The home buying process can be confusing and stressful. Not only do you need to consider things such as price and location, you also have to worry about whether the house itself has any problems that could become costly surprises down the road.

The Home Inspection is an unbiased, professional assessment of the condition of the house. It provides you an expert opinion and professional report on the condition of the physical structure and various systems within a house. Giving you peace of mind on what is likely the largest purchase youll ever make.

In order to prepare the report, an inspector must conduct a visual inspection of the house. The inspection process typically takes about 3 hours to complete. This of course may vary, according to the size and condition of the home. We strongly encourage you to accompany the inspector during the inspection. This will give you a chance to ask questions and become familiar with the systems of the home.

We will inspect all the structural elements and systems of the home. Items that will typically be included in an inspection are:

  1. Exterior (siding, trim, soffits/eaves, windows, hosebibs, electrical receptacles, electrical panel(s), doors, gutters, grade/lot/drainage, foundation, patios and porches, driveway, walkways, roof, chimney, swamp cooler)
  2. Attic (framing, sheathing, insulation, ventilation, electrical, HVAC, vapor barrier)
  3. Basement/Crawlspace (floor, framing, foundation, HVAC, windows, electrical receptacles/panels, ventilation, insulation, vapor barrier)
  4. Interior living spaces (floors, walls, ceilings, doors, windows, electrical receptacles/panel(s), closets, heat sources/HVAC, presence of smoke detectors
  5. Garage /Carport (floor, wall, ceiling, doors, windows, electrical receptacles/panel(s), garage door opener, review the condition of the garage door, heat sources/furnaces)
  6. Appliances (Furnace/Air conditioner/HVAC {heating/venting/air conditioning}, Water heater, built-in dishwasher, sink disposer, microwave, compactor)

Additional items and systems unique to a particular home can also be inspected.

When the inspection is complete, we will report on the problems that were discovered during the inspection. We will also tell you about any routine maintenance that should be performed, as well as answer any questions you may have. You will receive a full written report of the inspection that will highlight any issues within the structure. The highlighted/bolded text within the report will be distributed as the Summary Report. Also, an additional e-mail will be provided that will be labeled as Graphics Reference. This attachment will show pictures/discriptions of component discription of general materials within any home.

Our goal is to discover and inform you of anything we find that might affect your purchase. Also keep in mind that it is very common for us to find issues during the inspection that were not caught by the home inspector that the owner used when they originally bought the home. A detailed report is priceless when purchasing any property. We will tell you about any problems we find, and make repair recommendations in the written report. Maintenance items will also be noted within the report.
