Roof Coverings

Roofs are inspected visually and walked on or viewed from an area that does not put either the inspector or the roof at risk. Steep, wet, snow or ice covered roofs are not walked on. Slate, tile or asbestos roofs are not walked on. Specifics will be in the report.

Exterior

The exterior is inspected visually at grade level. The inspector’s evaluation is based on generally accepted building practices and the age of the components.

Grounds & Drainage

Inspection of the exterior grounds and drainage is visual and intended to determine if the grading is properly carrying surface water away from the foundation. It is based on normal weather conditions at the time of the inspection. Inspectors do not perform a soil analysis or evaluate homes based on geological conditions.

Heating & Cooling Systems

Heating and cooling inspections are visual. Weather permitting; we will operate both the heating and A/C units in their respective modes. We will use normal controls and evaluate how well the system is performing its intended function.

Plumbing

Plumbing inspections are visual and operational. Inspectors operate normal controls and put the system through a normal cycle.

Electrical

Electrical inspections are visual and operational. Inspectors operate all normal switches, test a representative number of outlets and observe visible lines.

Kitchen & Laundry

Kitchen and laundry inspections are visual and operational.

Bathrooms

Bathroom inspections are visual and operational. Inspectors operate plumbing fixtures to determine the presence of leaks and look for water damage.

Interior Rooms

Interior room inspections are conducted visually. Inspectors examine and base findings on homes of similar construction and age.

Garage & Carport

Garages and carports are inspected based on accessibility and are reported as being attached or detached from the house structure. The exterior components (i.e. roof, walls, eaves, fascias, gutters, etc.) should be reported when defects exist.

They should also be reported when they differ from those components previously listed as part of the house structure. Interior components (i.e. walls, etc.) should be reported when defects exist and when they differ from those components previously listed as part of the house structure.

Attic

Attic inspections are visual. Inspectors will access the attic if possible. Most attics are unfinished and outside the living space of the home.

Foundation

Foundation inspections are visual and limited to accessible components. Accessibility will vary due to type of foundation and other obstacles. The most common problem concerning foundations is water.
