Buying a home is the largest single investment you will ever make. To minimize unpleasant surprises and unexpected difficulties, you’ll want to learn as much as you can about the newly constructed or existing house before you buy it. A home inspection may identify the need for major repairs or builder oversights, as well as the need for maintenance to keep it in good shape. After the inspection, you will know more about the house, which will allow you to make decisions with confidence.
A property inspection is a visual examination of a structure, made by a licensed professional. It is basically a visual observation, with no drilling or digging. The structure itself from the foundation to the roof, including all systems in the building being inspected. A written report of findings is usually provided.
If you are buying a new home it cannot "fail" an inspection. A home inspection is a complete exam of the structure and utility systems. After the home inspector completes the inspection a detailed report is generated for the customer. The customer then uses the report to make a decision on the purchase of the home.
A standard home inspector’s report will cover the condition of the home’s heating system; central air conditioning system (temperature permitting); interior plumbing and electrical systems; the roof, attic and visible insulation; walls, ceilings, floors, windows and doors; the foundation, basement and structural components.
