Home inspections are a necessity for anyone looking to sell or purchase a home. Choosing someone qualified to perform home inspections will ensure that not only will the results of the home inspection be thorough, but that the risk of future complications – potentially costly – will be reduced as much as possible. A typical home inspection takes 2-3 hours, but this can vary depending on the size or age of the property and the number of defects identified.
Think of a Home Inspector like a general practitioner. They will inspect the home from top to bottom including central air conditioning systems, heating systems, plumbing systems, and electrical systems. The physical components of a home inspection include an evaluation of the condition of the roof, foundation, walls, floors, ceilings, windows, doors, and other visible structures of the building.
Qualified home inspectors will do a thorough evaluation of all the systems and structures of a home. Rather than appraising a home's value, or ensuring that the building meets municipal codes, home inspectors work to determine the condition of existing structures and calculate the risk of any problems arising in the future.
