Home Inspections Done Right

One of the most important steps to buying a house is the home inspection. As your Realtors when it comes to the home inspection we always attend the inspection ready to assist you with questions you may have reagrding the inspection information you receive. The home inspector examines those important areas that are critical for you knowing that the house is sound, safe and secure from defects. What are the areas that need to be looked at by the home inspector?

  • Roof the roof covering, flashing, gutters, downspouts, chimney, and skylights
  • Exterior siding, windows, doors, decks, stairways and outside electrical
  • Foundation basement, crawlspaces, floor slab, and floor framing
  • Interior attic areas, stairways, walls, ceilings, floor, lead paint
  • Electrical - service panel, exposed wiring, fixtures, switches
  • Heating System heating unit, venting components, fuel supply
  • Cooling System central air, visible components of system
  • Plumbing water supply distribution, waste systems, hot water heating equipment
  • Kitchen Appliances ovens, ranges, cook tops, dishwashers
Additionally, the home inspector may often take water samples and do a radon gas test. Both samples are sent out to laboratories to screen for acceptable levels. Its important that you have a knowledgeable Realtor representing you so that if there are concerns raised by the inspector on the reports you receive back that you then get  assistance in how to best get your concerns addressed by the seller.
