During a home inspection we will look for potential hazards, maintenance and needed
repairs. The inspection will cover both inside and outside components of the home and
is visual in nature. The home inspection is noninvasive, meaning we cannot comment on
things we cannot see.
Areas of the home that will be covered include: Roofs and gutters, porches and decks,
exterior and interior walls, doors and windows, heating/cooling and plumbing systems,
electrical switches and receptacles, attic, basement and crawl spaces, kitchen appliances
There are limitations to a home inspection. We can only inspect what we can see and
what we have access to. If a system is in question, you may be advised to have a
professional in that field inspect the system and give an analysis of its condition.
Items that are not included (but not limited to) are hot tubs, swimming pools, central vac
systems, security alarms, phone lines, satellites, well systems, private septic systems and
any low voltage systems in the home.
Inspections of appliances that are on the property and are to be inspected are visual in
nature and are for functionality of the appliance at the time of inspection. We make no
warranty expressed or implied as to the continued operation of the appliance once the
inspection is complete.
We will use our judgement as to how we perform our roof inspection. In most cases we
would follow the standard of practice and inspect the roof visually from a ladder or with
binoculars to determine roof condition. Roofs can be damaged by walking on them so
we are cautious about doing so. We are also concerned with safety and if we do go on to
a roof it is the only part of the inspection that we ask you as the buyer not to follow us.
Additional inspection services such as Radon Air, Radon Water or Water Tests would be
an additional cost.
