What Your Building Inspector Checks During Inspection

 Building Inspection Checklist

A building inspection expert is responsible to inspect through your property and check for anything that compromises the integrity of it. This specialist looks for any damage or malfunctions within the area and generates a report which you can analyze to help you come up with a better decision.

Here are some of the most important parts of our building that cannot be missed during a building inspection.

 

Structural Elements.

This will include construction of walls, ceilings, floors, roof, and foundation. Always ask about the parallel cracks versus horizontal cracks.  Does the foundation seem secure? Does the roof leak? Has there been a fire in the attic?

 

Exterior Evaluation.

Landscaping, walls, grading, elevation, drainage, driveways, fences, footpaths, fascia, trim, doors, windows, lights and exterior receptacles. These are also essential parts of your property that needs a thorough inspection.

 

Roof and Attic.

Framing, type of roof construction, flashing and gutters. It doesn’t include a guarantee of roof condition nor a roof certification. Ask about the number of layers are on the roof. When will it need a replacement? What is the average life expectancy of a roof?

 

Plumbing.

Identification of pipe materials used for drinkable pipes, drain, waste and vent pipes. including condition. Toilets, showers, sinks, faucets, and traps.  Ask if the plumbing is copper and be careful of malfunctioning joints.

 

Systems and Components.

Our property’s furnaces, water heaters, HVAC systems, fireplace, and sprinklers. Usually, there’s a separate inspection done for chimneys if the home building inspector finds any problem.

5 out of 5 stars After a big flooding in my area, I had a lot of standing water in the basement. I called this company for a thorough home inspection, and they found mold contamination everywhere in the house. Thanks to their remediation plan, my home is back to normal now, and I am confident my family is safe!

5 out of 5 stars They were very clear and helpful as soon as they answered the phone. They scheduled us the very next day. When they came, they went right to work. They explain what they will do very clearly and answer all question thoughtfully. They a have a mobile mini-van that has everything in it, including a printer. You get your home inspection printed out immediately. Very competent people. They also take a credit card, which is nice because ALL our cash was wrapped up in our down payment. I would use them again for sure.

5 out of 5 stars They are incredibly knowledgeable and professional. All of them did a thorough inspection on the home we are planning to buy and then took the time to answer all of our questions on the spot. We left the inspection with a notebook complete with a summary of the inspection, color photos and detailed information on everything inspected. The best part though was their willingness to answer more question several days after the inspection. They truly offer superior customer service before, during and after the job is done.
