What is involved in a residential inspection?
A certified home inspector will conduct a thorough inspection to assist you in finding out the condition of the structure, exterior, roof, electrical, plumbing, HVAC, interior, windows, doors, insulation and ventilation. Once the inspection is completed, the inspector will provide the buyer with a detailed report suggesting any improvements or repairs deemed necessary to bring the home up to current standards. This report will help the buyer to forecast future repairs, negotiate the price of the property or to get the seller to fix any problems that are found during the inspection, or if the issue is to big to fix it could help you to cancel the transaction. Additional specialty inspections that are recommended are radon testing, well water testing, Asbestos Testing, Mold testing and others. A Professional inspector will provide a detailed report explaining the conditions of the home and what repairs need to be focused on. A good home inspector will be thorough and accurate.
