A home inspection is an objective visual non-destructive examination of the systems and structure of a home, from the roof to the foundation. The inspector typically spends 3 to 5 hours performing a thorough, visual, functional and operational inspection of the many mechanical and structural components of the home. The time is dependent upon the size and complexity of the home.
The inspection includes an evaluation of such important elements as: Foundation, Roof, Attic, Plumbing, Electrical, Heating, Air Conditioning, Appliances, etc. Having a home inspected is similar to getting a physical check-up. If a problem or symptom is discovered, the inspector may recommend further evaluation.
