Outbuildings include all of the structures on your property that aren't directly attached to your home. These can include sheds, detached garages, barns, milk houses, pool cabanas and even playhouses.
Outbuildings can have many of the same issues that can plague your main structure. Roofs can leak, windows crack and rotting trim can lead to moisture damage. If the outbuilding houses mechanical systems, such as a pool cabana with a bathroom, these can lead to additional problems, especially since most outbuildings are not as well-insulated as your primary structure. As these outbuildings can affect the property's value, a thorough home inspector will check the state of these buildings as well as your residence.
