What Is A Home Inspection?

When you reach a decision to purchase a home, you are about to make a major financial commitment. As with any major purchase, you want to be secure in the knowledge that your decision was well thought out and you have performed the necessary due diligence to support your decision. Part of your due diligence process includes a home inspection to help you determine the condition of the home and to identify if there are any significant issues which could impact your decision.

A home inspection is a comprehensive assessment of a building performed by a trained, licensed professional who will provide an objective analysis of the home so you can be fully informed about its condition. The inspection includes a thorough assessment of the following components of a home:

  • The structural integrity by reviewing everything from the basement through the roof. It also includes an inspection of the exterior of the home.
  • The mechanical systems including the heating system and cooling system to insure they are operating correctly and to identify remaining useful life.
  • The electrical system including the electrical panel, service line, outlets and switches and other possible hazards.
  • The plumbing to check for leaks, clogs and proper functioning of sinks, faucets and toilets.
  • Environmental screening to identify the possible presence of mold, asbestos, lead paint and other hazards.
  • Built-in kitchen appliances.
  • Garage and Decks.
  • Wood Destroying Insect Inspection (WDI) to detect the presence of wood destroying insects, indications of previous treatment and/or previous damage.

Buyers Inspection
In both new and older homes, the best way to ensure that you are well informed about the strengths and weaknesses of a property is to have us give you a professional home inspection. We are trained to identify problem areas both small and large that may have been overlooked by the previous owners and to identify which require immediate attention.

Sellers Inspection
Whether you are selling your home on your own or using a realtor, it’s always a prudent idea to have a professional home inspection. Knowledge is power. All homes have strengths and weaknesses: we help you answer how serious the problems are and which must be immediately addressed and which can wait. The more you know about your home, the more prepared you will be for negotiation.

Construction Inspection
In a new home, the quality of construction is often not what it used to be some years ago, therefore many buyers have independent reviews of their properties during various stages of the construction process, including slab, frame, and final inspection. This relatively inexpensive inspection protects your purchase, prevents unpleasant surprises, and ensures the quality home that you’ve dreamed about.

Warranty Inspection
Most builders provide a one-year warranty for new construction. Generally during this period of time the buyer develops a "punch list" of corrections for the contractor to repair under the warranty coverage. Some defects will not be obvious to the untrained eye. It is prudent to obtain our home inspectors list of items that will most likely be repaired by your builder at no cost to you. You will be reassured knowing that potential problems were addressed before they grew into something that could cost you a great deal down the road.
