So…what does a home inspector do

So…what does a home inspector do?

You know the saying – haters gonna hate, home inspectors gonna inspect.

But what do they inspect? Let’s break it down.

What Does a Home Inspector Do?

A complete home inspection comes with a complete overview of property functions. This ranges from the roof to the foundation, and everything in-between.

Our inspectors will get into every nook and cranny, making sure you get a full report on every aspect of your property.

What’s included in a full home inspection:

ATTIC

Insulation and ventilation. We check for rodent damage, mold, water damage from a leaky roof, the condition of the insulation, and the condition of the roof from the bottom.

BASEMENT & FOUNDATION

If there is no basement, we go into the crawlspace to investigate the condition of the foundation.

CHIMNEY

Learn about the three levels of chimney inspection as laid out by the National Fire Protection Association.

DECK

The deck is for relaxing. Make sure you can relax about your deck’s condition.

DRAINAGE & GRADING

We check to see if you need to do some land grading near your house’s foundation to correct drainage issues.

ELECTRICAL

We check the service drop, mast, meter & base, grounding, outlets and more.

EXTERIOR

Walkways, exterior doors, eaves, soffits, fascia and more.

GARAGE

We make sure your hub for home repair is in good repair.

HEATING & COOLING

All major heating and cooling systems to make sure you get them in working order.

INTERIOR

Built-in appliances, doors, windows, flooring and more.

PLUMBING

Sinks, tubs, faucets, shut-off valves and more.

ROOF

We inspect roof coverings, structure, gutters, downspouts, leaks and more.

Additional services a home inspector offers:

Lab Testing

Mold, Water, Asbestos & Lead tests available.

We can perform a variety of tests which will communicate what is involved in reducing damage to homes.

Sewer Scope

The sewer line has many variables that are unseen (was it installed correctly, was it repaired, are roots an issue, has someone flushed an object down it, is there a partial break, is there a low spot in the line due to settling, are the fittings the proper ones for flow, is the house tied into sewer and to a septic system) These are all potential issues that would be unable to determine without a proper sewer scope or evidence of a backed up sewer line.

Thermal Imaging

Infrared (thermal imaging) is an advanced, non-invasive technology that allows the inspector to reveal things which can’t be seen by the naked eye.

We perform thermal imaging on all home inspections.
