WHAT IS A HOME INSPECTION?
   A home inspection is a nondestructive, noninvasive objective visual examination of the physical structure and systems of a home, from roof to foundation.  An inspector typically spends about three hours evaluating a home, and may recommend further evaluation if problems or symptoms are discovered.

   One of the best ways to understand a home's condition, habitability and safety is to hire a professional home inspector.  A properly trained home inspector will review your house as a system, looking at how one component of the house might affect the operability or lifespan of another.  Home inspectors will go through the property and perform a comprehensive visual inspection to assess the condition of the house and all of its systems.  They will determine the components that are not performing properly as well as items that are beyond their useful life or are unsafe.  They will also identify areas where repairs may be needed or where there may have been problems in the past.  Inspections are intended to provide the client with a better understanding of property conditions, as observed at the time of the inspection.

PLEASE JOIN US DURING THE HOME INSPECTION

   We encourage you to accompany us on the home inspection.  You'll find our home inspectors are knowledgeable and friendly.  They'll be able to point out any areas of concern, answer your questions, and also make suggestions regarding maintenance.  We'll work around your schedule to conduct the inspection when it's most convenient for you. We work sun up to sun down! As long as we have 30-45 minutes on the exterior inspection, we can finish the interior inspection after sunset.

                            Common Defects:

No house is perfect. Even the best built and best maintained homes will always have a few items in less than perfect condition. Below are some of the items we most commonly find when inspecting a home:

Roofing Problems with roofing material are the single most common defect we find. Usually it doesn't mean the roof needs replaced, simply that it is in need of maintenance or repair.

Ceiling stains Caused by past or present leaks, ceiling stains are very common. It can be difficult to tell whether the stains are from present leaks, or were caused by leaks which have since been repaired.

Electrical hazards Most common in older homes, but often found in newer homes as well. Electrical hazards come in many forms; from ungrounded outlets, to wiring done incorrectly by a previous homeowner, to failuring safety devices like GFCI (ground fault circuit interrupter) outlets.

Rotted wood Caused by being wet for extended periods of time, most commonly found around tubs, showers and toilets inside, or roof eaves and trim outside.

Insulation and Ventilation Many times the homeowner (or others) installs additional insulation, but either installs it incorrectly and/or covers the soffit vents or does not ensure adequate ventilation. 

Gas furnace Most gas furnaces seem to be in need of routine maintenance such as new filters or gas company certification at the least. Many have other issues such as faulty operation or inadequate fire clearance as well.

Plumbing defects Plumbing issues commonly found include dripping faucets, leaking fixtures, slow drains, gas leaks etc... Even in brand new homes, it is common to identify minor plumbing defects.
