What We Cover

Inspection of the Site and Grounds

This 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.

Exterior

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.

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.

Kitchens

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.

Bathrooms

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.

Garages

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.

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.
