Professional Home Inspections

An inspection is a check of many different items in the home. The check is partly a visual inspection of the structure of the home, along with an inspection of the electric, plumbing and HVAC components of the home.

The electric is checked to make sure that all outlets are working, the heating and AC are turned on and temperatures are checked to verify that they are working within the proper variations.

Inspected Areas


During an inspection, the inspector will review for potential problems with the readily-accessible exposed portions of the structure of the home, including the roof, attic, walls, ceilings, floors, windows, doors, and foundation, as well as the heating/air conditioning systems, interior plumbing and electrical systems. In most cases, the inspector will walk the roof and therefore be able to check the condition of the roof shingles.

The inspection includes the physical inspection, any consulting with the realtor or homebuyer and any consulting/questions after the inspection as well as a very detailed written report with pictures.

A home inspection involves the inspection of key systems in a home, including:

Grounds

This includes driveways and parking, porches, steps, patios, decks and balconies, fences, landscaping that affects the foundation, retaining walls, and any other conditions on the grounds surrounding the home that may affect the home itself. The sprinkler system is turned on and the sprinkler heads are inspected.
Electrical

This includes the heating system, air conditioning or heat pump, outlets, electrical panels, smoke alarms, fans and lighting.
Roof

We inspect the eaves, the gable, the roof covering (shingles), flashing, skylights, and plumbing vents. We walk the roof in most cases unless safety is a concern. The condition of the tiles or shingles is noted and any loose or broken tiles are reported.
Exterior

This includes the exterior concrete/frame walls, siding, trim, soffits, fascia, flashing, windows, and crawlspace.
Garage

We inspect the garage door and the opener, the floor condition (concrete or otherwise), exterior service door, electrical issues as well as the ceiling.
Kitchen

This includes countertops, cabinets, plumbing components, walls and ceiling and appliances.
Laundry room

This includes the laundry sink, plumbing, venting for the dryer, electrical, G.F.C.I., appliances, and gas shut-off.
Bathrooms

We inspect all sinks and tubs along with their plumbing, the shower, toilet, walls and ceilings, heating and circulation for all bathrooms in the home.
Bedrooms

Each bedroom is inspected for all the necessary components, ensure all electrical outlets are in good working order, vents, heating and cooling, fans, ingress and egress, fire alarms, and doors.
Interior

In addition to everything already listed, we also inspect all flooring, interior windows, window seals, stairs, steps, and smoke detectors.
Pool

We inspect the accessible areas of the pool, spa, pumps, heater, visible piping, liner, ladder, steps and railing. We visually inspect the pool’s foundation and look for any evidence of structural deficiencies. The plumbing system and their components also are tested and observed for functional flow and leaks throughout system.
Attic

The attic is inspected for sound structure, the type of insulation used and whether it is sufficient, venting, where fans are exhausted to, HVAC duct, evidence of condensation or moisture, and vapor barriers.
Crawl space

This involves inspecting for access, foundation walls, seismic bolts, drainage, ventilation, girders/beams/columns, joists, sub-flooring, moisture stains, insulation, vapor barrier, and any signs of problems. The inspector will go navigate through the crawl space as much as feasible.
Plumbing

All plumbing systems are checked throughout the home, including water service and pressure, main shut-offs, well pump and water heater.
HVAC System

The heating and cooling system is examined and operated to test for correct operations and temperatures, including electrical controls and systems.

There is much more to an inspection, because these are just the categories and each category involves a detailed inspection.

The condition of the home is written up in a comprehensive report with pictures that are sent to you in 24-48 hours.
