HAT IS A HOME INSPECTION?
A home inspection is an objective visual examination of the physcial structure and
systems of a home, from the roof to the foundation. Having a home inspected is like
giving a physcial check-up. If problems or symptoms are found, the inspector may
recommend further evaluation.
The standard home inspector's report will review the conditions of: the heating system,
the electrical system, the cooling system, the interior plumbing, the roof surface, attic,
insulation, walls, ceilings, floors, windows, doors, appliances, foundation, basement,
exterior, drainage and structure.
HAT DOES A HOME INSPECTION INCLUDE?
he purchase of a home is probably the largest investment you will ever make. You should learn
as much as you can about the condition of the property and the need for any major repairs before
you buy, so that you can minimize unpleasant surprises and difficulties afterwards. Of course,
a home inspection also points out the positive aspects of a home, as well as the maintenance that
will be necessary to keep it in good shape. After the inspection, you will have a much clearer
understanding of the property you are about purchase.
If you are already a home owner, a home inspection may be used to identify problems in the making
and to learn preventive measures which might avoid costly future repairs. If you are planning
to sell your home, you may wish to have an inspection prior to placing your home on the market.
This will give you a better understanding of the condition which may be discovered by the buyer's
inspector, and an opportunity to make repairs that will put the house in better selling condition.
