Home Inspection

Having a pre-purchase home inspection is essential to minimizing your risk of finding major problems after the sale is complete.  The length of time for my home inspection varies depending on the size, condition and age of the home.  A thorough inspection typically requires a minimum of 3 1/2 hours for a small house and increases from there.  It will consist of a visual inspection of the following components and systems:

Structural Components:

Foundation
Framing and support systems  (Joists, subfloors, beams and columns)
Basement  (floors, walls and water penetration)
Crawl space (ventilation and water penetration)

Exterior:

Roofing covering, visible flashing and roof penetrations
Gutters and downspouts
Grade and drainage
Chimneys
Wall covering and Trim
Doors and windows
Exterior gas and electric service entrances
Garage
Driveways and sidewalks
Porches, decks and patios
Landscaping (for elements that pose a risk to the structure and grounds)

Interior:

All rooms with an emphasis on kitchen and bathrooms (usually the most problematic and expensive rooms)
Ceilings, walls and floors
Interior doors and windows
Stairs and hallways
Fireplaces
Laundry areas
Wet bars

Attic:

Roof framing and sheathing
Ventilation
Roof penetrations
Insulation

Mechanical Systems:

Plumbing  (inspect and test pipes, fixtures, drains, vents and water heater)
Natural gas system  (inspect and test)
Heating system (inspect and test)
Central Air Conditioning systems  (inspect and test when temperatures permit)
Electrical  (inspect electrical panel and wiring, and test outlets & fixtures)

 

The Report:

The written inspection report will be a comprehensive and informative assessment of the home.
It will be a full narrative computer generated custom report with digital photos of key deficiencies.  Not a one size fits all check list.
It will contain detailed descriptions of the type of materials and systems used in the home as well as their condition.
It will also contain an assessment of what you can expect for replacement or repairs of key major systems over the next 5 years.
The report will be sent in PDF file format via email within 24 business hours of the inspection.
See Sample Inspection Report.
