What's Inspected

Be an Informed Buyer
It is your responsibility to be an informed home buyer.  You should always be sure the home you purchase is satisfactory. A careful examination of your potential new home is crucial and could save you a great deal of money in the long run. A home inspection should always be arranged before the purchase of any home. Be sure your contract states that the house purchace is pending the results of the home inspection.

As a Home Inspector I will:

  • Evaluate the physical condition: of the structure, construction and mechanical systems
  • Identify items that should be repaired or replaced
  • Estimate the remaining useful life of the major systems(such as electrical, plumbing,heating, airconditioning), equipment, structure and finishes.

A Typical Inspection Includes:

  • Roof, vent, flashings and trim
  • Gutters and downspouts
  • Skylight, chimney,and other roof penetrations
  • Decks, step, porches, walkways and railings
  • Grading and drainage
