Download a Sample Inspection Report
A home inspector is charged with looking at a representative number of doors. That is generally interpreted as at least one door per room, and a thorough inspector will look at all doors to which he or she has access.
Inspecting as many doors in the home as possible is important to judge the integrity of the entrances and exits. Though one door may be perfectly installed and in great shape, that doesn't mean that all doors in the room will be in the same condition. Problems with doors can include gaps around exterior doors that waste energy; hinges improperly installed, posing a security risk; and doors that are less than plumb, making their operation difficult.
