What is a Home Inspection?
A home inspection is a visual examination of the physical structure, components, and systems of a home, performed by a licensed and certified home inspector.
What is Included in a Home Inspection?
Typical home inspections cover the condition of HVAC, electrical, and plumbing systems, as well as the roof, attic and visible insulation, ceilings, walls, floors, doors, windows, basement or crawlspace, foundation, and visible structural components.
Why Do I Need a Home Inspection?
If you are planning to sell your home, a home inspection can identify problems with the home that could prevent its sale or lower its value. You can then remedy these issues before pacing the home on the market.
If you are seeking to purchase a home, you will want to learn as much as possible about a prospective new home, including any needed repairs or builder oversights.
Can I Perform My Own Home Inspection?
No. A home inspector has been licensed and certified to perform these inspections by learning about the particular elements of home construction, proper installation, maintenance, and home safety. Even the most experienced DIY homeowner does not possess the knowledge and expertise of a professional home inspector.
What if My Home Fails the Inspection?
Home inspections are not pass or fail examinations. A home inspection renders a professional judgement on the physical condition of a home’s major systems and components. It also includes a listing of any problems found with the home, and points out components or systems that may need repairs or replacement.
