Types of Home Inspections
Full Home Inspection
Our full home inspections include a detailed examination of the major areas of your home. This will help you make an informed decision about the property you are about to purchase or if you are a homeowner, gain an in-depth assessment of the condition of your home and its components. During a full home inspection, we typically examine:
- Roof – Shingles, flashing, chimney, plumbing vents, and skylights.
- Exterior – Doors, windows, trim, decks, walkways, driveways, siding and more.
- Attic – Ventilation, insulation, roof joists, flashings, and more.
- Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) – Equipment, registers and ducting.
- Basement or crawl space (if accessible) – Structure and foundation walls, vapor barrier, support beams, and more.
- Electrical system – Main electrical panel, breakers, outlets, service branches, and meter.
- Plumbing – Drains, showers, toilet, water heater, and fixtures.
- Kitchen – Built-in appliances, countertops, cabinets, fixtures, drains, and more.
Mobile Home Inspections
If you are buying or selling a mobile home, then it is a good idea to invest in a mobile home inspection. Are you wondering what mobile home inspectors look for? During our mobile home inspections, we check the following:
- Grounds – We ensure that there is proper drainage away from the house. We also look for evidence of standing water, leaks, and other issues. A home inspection includes documentation of the condition of exterior attached components, deck railings, walkways, and driveways.
- Structure – We check whether or not the house is plumb and document any evidence of sagging or bowing. Our inspectors will determine whether or not windows and door frames appear straight.
- Exterior – During a home inspection, we look for damage to the siding and other exterior features. We examine the condition of the windows, storm doors, and screens. We’ll also look for mildew stains, peeling paint, and other issues.
- Roof – As long as it is safe to walk on the roof, we’ll document the condition and approximate age during the inspection.
- Attic – The attic inspection includes a look at the insulation and its installation. We’ll also let you know whether or not the ventilation is sufficient.
- And More – The above are just a few of the things we look at during a mobile home inspection.
Sewer Scope Inspections
Underground sewer pipes can develop a number of problems over the years. Tree roots can infiltrate the sewer lines causing damage. Older pipes can corrode leading to broken pipes or cracks. Grease and other substances can block sewer lines. Sewer line repairs can run $20,000 or more depending on the issue.
It is important to know that the sewer system is not examined during a standard home inspection. Thanks to advances in technology, we are able to conduct sewer scope inspections using high tech video equipment that lets document the interior of your sewer line. We’ll give you an unbiased report that details the condition of your sewer system.
