Home Inspection – General

home inspection systems checkHome Inspection 

A general home inspection is a non-invasive, visual examination of the accessible areas of a residential property (as delineated below), performed for a fee, which is designed to identify defects within specific systems and components defined by these Standards that are both observed and deemed material by the inspector.  The scope of work may be modified by the Client and Inspector prior to the inspection process.

A non-invasive, visual examination relates to the fact that, in most cases, home inspectors are not required to dismantle or remove components, with the one exception being the removal of electrical panel covers (dead fronts).  A residential home inspection can include apartments, condos, single-family homes, and structures containing multiple units.  However, some authorities limit these to a building with a maximum of four units.  Any home inspection must include an agreement between the inspector and the client as to which components and systems the inspector will be evaluating.

A general home inspection includes an inspection of the homes interior and exterior components including:

  • Interior & exterior walls, window, doors.
  • Walkways, driveways, site grading.
  • Heating, ventelation, and air conditioning.
  • basement/crawlspace
  • fireplaces/chimneys
  • roof and attic
  • electrical
  • plumbing
