The purpose of a home inspection is to discover all significant defects that are visually discernible or that can be discovered without dismantling components of the property: without opening walls or ceilings or excavating the grounds. The home inspection process involves evaluation of the foundation, site drainage, plumbing, and heating equipment, electrical system, doors, windows, interior, exterior wallcovering, fireplaces, attics, roofing and much more.
The home inspection starts as soon as the inspector arrives. He looks at site conditions, electrical service entry, exterior conditions, and driveways. Home inspectors check electrical outlets, panel boxes, and observe wiring where visible. Home inspectors check plumbing operation, fixtures and the age of built-in appliances. Common safety issues include smoke alarms, spark arrestors on chimneys, firewalls in garages, stair and deck railings, tempered glass, gas piping among others. Home inspections check list book used for inspection. Call for home inspection costs.
