What is included in the inspection?

A home inspection consists of a visual observation of the home and includes:

Heat and air conditioning systems, roofing, under floor area or basement, attics, functional flow and and drainage of plumbing systems, electrical systems, issues with the grade or guttering which may lead to water penetration of the home and damage to the home. There are countless issues that can be found during a proper home inspection that might be otherwise missed through a casual observation. An inspection may show structural components where deterioration has been found. Flashings that are improperly installed are another issue a home inspection may uncover. This could cause major water damage and deterioration to a roof system over time. In fact bad flashing is one of the biggest culprits in the shortening of the roof's lifespan as well as lack of the proper ventilation.

Decks, balconies, stoops, steps, areaways, porches and applicable railings are also inspected as well as eaves, soffits, and fascias. Other items include vegetation, grading, drainage, driveways, patios, walkways, and retaining walls with respect to their effect on the condition of the building.

After the inspection is complete you will be provided a detailed report which will include image photos of areas of concern. more on what is included in your home inspection
