The Inspection

  • Depending on the size & condition of the structure, my home inspections on average take between 3 and 4 hours to complete.
  • The Inspection I perform for you will consist of inspecting, on average, more than 120 different inspection points.
  • Items & systems are inspected for condition, serviceability, functionality and operation.

Below is a list of some of the major items & systems I will inspected during a typical home inspection:

  • Foundations
  • Structural Components
  • Basements & Crawlspaces
  • Exterior Finishes
  • Garages and Garage doors
  • Chimneys and fireplaces
  • Roofing systems & Flashings
  • Attic Roof Structural Components
  • Attic Insulation & Ventilation Systems
  • Interior Walls, Ceilings and Flooring
  • Doors and Windows
  • Stairways and Stairwells
  • Kitchen Fixtures, Cabinets & Appliances
  • Bath Fixtures and related components
  • Electrical System Service
  • Branch Wiring and Related Components
  • GFCI & AFCI Devices
  • HVAC Systems
  • HVAC Plenum & Ducting
  • Plumbing System Components & Fixtures
  • Water Pressure & Volume
  • Water Heaters & Related Components
  • Smoke & Carbon Monoxide Detection Systems
  • Sump pump Systems
  • Landscape and Site Drainage
  • Driveways and Sidewalks
  • Natural Gas, Propane, and Fuel Oil Systems

I strongly recommend that you attend the inspection if at all possible

  • Although, many of my clients are from out of state & I have performed inspections for clients outside the country. So if you are unable to attend the inspection for one reason or another, the report you will receive will be very clear and easy to understand.
  • And if you are not quite sure of something, I will always be here to answer any questions or concerns you might have.

Don't worry - Relax

  • I understand that the purchase of a new home can be a very stressful situation for some. Not only will I point out discrepancies found but I will also teach you a whole lot about your new home.
  • Every house has issues. Most issues are standard, deferred maintenance issues. But there are the few that have major discrepancies. Not only will you be informed of these issues in a clear & understanding way, I will explain to you the difference between the two.
  • Don’t let standard maintenance issues stand in the way of you getting your dream home. Anything can be fixed. The question is, at what cost.
  • After I inspect your prospective new home you will have gained the knowledge you need to give you complete confidence to proceed forward with your Real Estate transaction. This you can be assured of.
