Will you need to schedule a home inspection in the coming year? Perhaps it has been a long time since your home was inspected, or maybe you are planning to buy a house for the first time. Either way, you may be wondering what kinds of things are inspected during a home inspection. Here are some of them:
Let’s begin with the exterior of the house. We will look at the roof to ensure it is in good condition. We will also inspect any decking attached to the home. The buildings’ structure and systems are an area we spend extra time examining, as well as ensuring the property has sufficient grade. Something else we check is the windows and doors to see if they pose a home security risk.
Another area we pay extra attention to is the home's HVAC and plumbing systems. For example, we check that each faucet in the home is working properly, etc. The home's electrical and wiring system is another very important area to inspect as fire safety is of the utmost importance and faulty electrics are a huge cause of house fires.
This very brief list does not include everything on our home inspections, but it does give you an idea of what is included. If you would like to learn more, please don’t hesitate to contact us, and we will be happy to provide you with additional details.
