Home Inspections

A home inspection is a comprehensive visual examination of the home's structure and working systems. It should cover the exterior building envelope, all accessible structural components from the foundations to rooftop and includes basic testing of the bathrooms, plumbing, heating, electrical and ventilation systems. A home inspection will reduce the risk of having to deal with unexpected defects in a house. You will gain knowledge and familiarity with the house and determine whether or not it meets your expectations.

A home inspection should cover the following:

  • Foundations and crawl space
    Garage or Carport
    Exterior walls and windows
    Doors, porches and decks
    Roofing, gutters and skylights
    Chimneys and masonry
    Attic, ventilation and insulation
    Kitchen and bathrooms
    Plumbing and domestic hot water systems
    Heating systems
    Electrical system
    Abandoned fuel oil tanks

You should be present, at least for part of the home inspection review any observations, and to answer any resulting questions or concerns.
