We Cover the following Home Inspection Services:
Whole House Inspection
1) Inspection of the Site and Grounds
Which will include items such as grading for drainage, patios, porches, decks, trees, and bushes which may have an effect on the home and all other items as they relate to the grading and landscaping.
2) The exterior of the home protects the interior of the home.
These exterior components of the property include the foundation, retaining walls, siding, trim, windows, chimneys, and other related items. Each of these items is inspected for their overall condition and how it relates to the dwelling.
3) All Living Areas
Interior components of the home include various rooms and related items. Your inspector will go through each room including all visible and accessible areas of the home. This is a very important part of the inspection because symptoms of larger problems are often visible in these areas. Settling can be noticed in the floors and walls. Leaks may be noticed on the ceilings. Your inspector will go through each and every room making notes of relevant defects.
The kitchen is the heart and soul of the home. This is where most Americans spend their time when at home. Kitchens, which were often installed using substandard materials and products, will be a source of expensive future upgrades. Your inspector will inspect the condition of the cabinets and countertops, run all appliances, inspect for safety hazards, inspect for water damage around the sink, dishwasher, and base cabinets.
Besides the kitchen, the bathroom is normally one of the most expensive areas to replace or refurbish. The inspector will carefully check all areas including the sink vanity, tub, shower, around the toilet, and all supply valves. These areas are more prone to hidden water damage. The inspector will advise you of any visible defects and alert you to any potential hidden defects such as a leaking shower pan or a hole in the bath tub.
The garage inspection will include an attached and detached structure. A few items to be inspected are the proper installation of electrical service including ground fault circuit interruption (also known as GFCI), testing and operating garage door and related components, inspecting overall construction on attached and detached garages, and also inspecting for proper firewalls and auto-close mechanisms at the access doors. This is just to name a few.
7) Electrical System
The type, condition, and complexity of the electrical system will have a lot to do with the age of the home. The older the home, the more complex and time consuming the electrical inspection tends to be. The electrical inspection will involve inspecting electrical outlets, switches, lighting, and any visible electrical wiring in the attic and basement. We will also remove the dead front cover to the main electrical panel. Items to be inspected at the panel include breakers and or fuses, wiring, grounding, double taps, etc.
8) Health, Fire, and Safety
Items that fall under heath, fire, and safety are:
- Emergency Egress Windows
- Hand Rails
- Smoke Detectors(checking for the presence of)
- Carbon Monoxide Detectors(checking for the presence of)
- Radon Testing(separate service)
- Termites(separate service)
- Mold Testing(separate service)
- Ventilation and combustion air in rooms with gas or oil-fired appliances
These areas are all inspected, operated, and tested by your inspector. Since they are very important for your family’s safety, rest assured that they will be taken very seriously by your inspector.
