What Our Experts Inspect

A home inspection is your one opportunity to thoroughly inspect the property you’re buying or selling before closing. That’s why we check every nook, corner and cranny of your home to ensure that everything is in good condition.

Roofing

At the time of inspection the roof components include inspection of soffit, eaves, trim, facias, ventilation, framing, gutters, downspouts, skylights, chimneys, flashing, venting systems, and the type of roof construction. We will also check insulation quality, signs of water intrusion, when they will need to be replaced and the number of layers on the roof.

Plumbing

At the time of inspection the plumbing components include inspection of waste pipe materials, inspect drains, leaks, odor, water pressure, sump pumps, ejector pits, noises, waste pipes and vent pipes. We will also inspect all distribution systems including fixtures, drains, faucets, waste, vent systems, main water line material, and main water shut-off valve.

Appliances

At the time of inspection the appliances included in the inspection are dishwashers, ranges, refrigerators, cooktops, range hoods, ovens, microwaves, garbage disposals, smoke and carbon monoxide detectors. We will also check washers and dryers if they remain with the home – no warranties on appliances are given unless otherwise stated. Only those that are operational and able to be tested are inspected.

Electrical

At the time of inspection the electrical components include inspection of electrical components: circuit breakers, electrical lines, meter box, fuses, bonding, grounding, service amperage, main disconnect, grounding, GFC/AFCI outlets, breakers, sub panels, and the main panel. We will also check exhaust fans, ceiling fans, receptacles, lighting fixtures and make sure that everything is operating properly and safely.

Garage

At the time of inspection the garage components include inspection of walls, slab, ceiling, vents, entry, garage door, garage sensors, lights, openers, receptacles, exterior, windows, and roof. If there is an attached garage, our inspector will ensure firewall is present. Periodic safety inspections are recommended to make sure that all garage systems are functional.

Systems

House systems are extremely important and usually cost the most to repair or replace. At the time of inspection the system components include inspection of everything from water heaters, heating & cooling systems, furnace, air conditioner, duct work, chimney, fireplace damper door, hearth, fireplace, and boilers are inspected if they are able to be turned on. Our inspector will assess the age and functionality of all the units and advise repair/replacement for every unit.

We will also check for any evidence of water penetration, signs of possible asbestos, mold, pest & termite activity, and lead based material.

Structural

At the time of inspection the structural components include inspection of walls, ceilings, floors, cracks in foundation and roof, damage to the structure, horizontal cracks vs parallel cracks, condition of foundation, condition of crawl space, and condition of basement.
