What Is included in a home inspection?
A home inspection is a visual, non-invasive examination of a home. Though there are parts of the house that cannot be checked, like plumbing and wiring in walls, we use state-of-the-art equipment and software to see and document as much as possible.
All of our inspections follow this basic format, using our 101-point checklist. We follow the InterNACHI Standards of Practice to give you the highest quality inspection.
Areas we inspect:
Roof-coverings, gutters and downspouts, flashing, vents, chimney; other visible roof components.
Wall coverings, soffits, windows, doors, walkways & driveways, porches, railings, grounds; other visible components.
The foundation, basement, crawlspace, and visible structural components.
Doors, windows; floors, walls, ceilings; steps, railings, other visible components.
Attic & Insulation
Insulation and ventilation in attics, crawlspaces & foundation; exhaust systems.
Lintels; dampers, cleanouts, other accessible and visible parts of the fireplaces and chimneys.

What is not included in a home inspection?
A home inspection is not a complete technical inspection- it is a general visual assessment. A home inspection will not reveal every problem that exists, but only the defects able to be observed on the day of the inspection. A home inspection cannot predict any future conditions.
Some of the things that are not included in a home inspection are:
You get a detailed inspection report
After the inspection, we’ll give you an on-site summary of what we inspected and defects that we found. After that, we’ll send you a detailed digital report with high-resolution pictures, video, and clearly written explanations of what is wrong and why it’s a problem.
You’ll probably think of other things to ask after the inspection, so please contact us anytime if you have questions. When you’re buying, time is short when you’ve made an offer, and we want to be helpful to you in this often emotional and overwhelming experience.
