What Is Assessed During a General Home Inspection?
The best way to learn the true condition of your home is to have a professional inspector come to your property to do a general home inspection. This is a visual survey that can take two hours or more to conduct. They will evaluate the condition of your home by following a checklist of items that need to be assessed or inspected.
The windows, walls, doors, ceilings, staircases, and railing of your property will be inspected during a general home inspection. They will assess if the windows and doors can open without hindrance. The fireplace will be checked to see if it can be operated safely. The sturdiness of your railings will also be checked.
The foundation will be checked for major cracks or damage. The exterior walls, siding, gutter system, and roof will be visually assessed. The inspector will note down any damage or possible problem areas. Your porch, driveway, walkways, and pathways will all be assessed.
The heating and cooling system will be checked to verify if it is in working condition. The machine and the equipment will be looked over during the inspection.
The piping and drainage system of the house will be tested. The inspector may flush all of the toilets in your home to see if they are working. They will run the taps to see if there are any leaks in your sink.
The wiring and the circuits will be checked to see if it can handle the current electrical load of the household. The service panels, breakers, and fuses will be individually inspected.
