What to Expect

A typical home inspection involves having you join me toward the end of the inspection. (However, not all clients can attend, which is fine, as the full report will be sent regardless and any questions can be asked via phone or email regarding the findings.) This works well for two main reasons.

  1. It allows me to take my time and solely focus on the condition of the home.
  2. Since I was allowed the time to focus on the home, I will be able to discuss my findings and summarize the condition of the house as a whole.

Report Information

Some of the more common items reported that are important to know other than potential structural defects include:

  • the condition of the foundation and the roof details(attic condition/age of shingles/how much life remaining)
  • the age of the furnace, water heater and air conditioner along with typical life expectancy so you have an idea of when to expect to replace the units

Other common items include:
  • proper ground slope for rain/melting snow run-off for a dry basement/foundation
  • adequate attic insulation and ventilation for a functional attic
  • GFCI (ground fault circuit interrupter) receptacles in recommended (wet location) areas as safety precautions
  • appropriate exterior covering to preserve the structure of the house (siding, paint, etc.)
  • condition and function of windows
