Download a Sample Inspection Report
For a single-family home, a home inspection can give a prospective buyer a good idea of the state of the dwelling. A thorough home inspection will cover the structure and foundation, the mechanical systems, the plumbing and wiring systems, the roof and roof drainage system, interior finishes, the exterior windows and doors and the fireplaces, if any.
Home inspections are not just for real estate transactions. Inspections can also benefit single-family homeowners who are planning a large remodeling project or addition, and those who would like to schedule preventative maintenance. Home inspectors are also useful as overseers on new home construction projects and as knowledgeable house minders when you have to leave town for an extended period.
