Home Inspections

A home inspection is visual and non-invasive. Inspection of plumbing, electrical and heating/cooling systems will be using normal operating controls/valves/switches. I will not operate any shut off valves, switches or breakers. Please confirm that utilities and heating/cooling systems are on prior to inspection. Heating/cooling system operation may be limited due to exterior temperatures at the time of inspection to prevent damage to equipment.

I will inspect the following items during the course of each inspection, subject to the limitations of visibility, access and safety.

  • Plumbing, including service main, interior and exterior fixtures
  • Electrical, including service entrance, breakers and fuses, GFCIs, AFCIs
  • Heating and cooling systems
  • Foundation
  • Basements or crawlspaces
  • Visible structure
  • Siding and trim
  • Roof and gutters
  • Fascia, trim, soffit, flashing
  • Roof ventilation and penetrations
  • Chimneys (exterior only)
  • Fireplace damper and hearth
  • Appliances
  • Water Heaters
  • Attached garage (up to two car included at no extra charge)
  • Sump pump (sealed units will not be inspected)
  • Porches and decks
  • Driveways, walkways, exterior steps and railings

My inspection does not include the following:

  • lead, asbestos or other hazardous materials
  • termite or other insect damage and I recommend a separate termite inspection
