Residential home inspection services include any single-family home. We will compile a complete analysis of the home’s systems and structures to determine health & integrity. We know that purchasing a home is one of the largest investments that you’ll make throughout your lifetime. With this in mind, we take care to note every detail during the inspection process.
Wondering what’s included in a standard home inspection from Best Home Inspections? Here is a quick overview of the services included in your home inspection, and the major systems that we review throughout the process.
The roof is one of the most costly and important structures. We will examine the roof, its structure, shingles/tiles, flashing, gutters, downspouts and more.
This includes the exterior walkways and doors, siding, eaves and soffits, fascia, paint, and other such elements of the home’s exterior.
We will test and examine the HVAC systems including ducts, filters, furnaces and air conditioning units.
We will check all plumbing fixtures for proper function, including tubs, sinks, hoses, showers, water shut-off valves, and irrigation systems, if applicable, and look for leaks and other such flaws.
We will check both interior and exterior electrical systems including service drops, service masts, grounding, outlets, meters, circuit breakers, and other such systems.
We will test and examine all major appliances like hot water heaters, washers and dryers, dishwashers, refrigerators, freezers, and more.
We will check doors and windows for proper sealing and drafts, signs of mold or water damage, and more. We will also check the condition of all interior spaces.
We will examine the foundation, crawlspaces and basements to look for signs of things like past water damage, foundation cracking or shifting, and other such potentially expensive issues.
We will examine the attic to ensure it is properly ventilated, check for mold and moisture, assess the level of insulation, and more.
The purpose of an inspection isn’t just to find problems with the house; It’s also about making sure that you don’t buy something that will cost more than you think, or cause other headaches down the road. If you’re planning on purchasing a brand-new home, then hiring a home inspector could save you thousands of dollars. It will also help you understand the property you want to buy and the possible defects. A home inspection can improve your confidence as a buyer or a real estate agent.
