Download a Sample Inspection Report
A home inspector is charged with checking a representative number of windows to see if they are installed properly, open safely and are not cracked or warped. This is more often interpreted as being at least one window per room, but a thorough inspector will usually check as many windows as are accessible.
Checking a representative number of windows during a home inspection is important to determining the integrity of the window installations throughout the home, especially in an unoccupied home. Although one window may operate smoothly and be properly installed, that doesn't ensure that all the home's windows are in the same condition.
