What's Included in a Home Inspection?

The Four Vital Categories to Inspect

  1. Major defects: cracks noted in the roofing system, trusses, and plywood decking
  2. Things that lead to major defects: a missing chimney cricket that causes damage to the roof flashing and chimney
  3. Things that may prevent you from obtaining financing, legally occupying, or insuring the home: fuses instead of circuit breakers (these are considered out of date and dangerous)
  4. Safety hazards: exposed live wiring under a kitchen sink near plumbing drains and water that could cause a shock or electrocution hazard

Any items that would be considered Serious or a Major Defect would be addressed in the home inspection report. Many times, a resolution to repair these items can be addressed by a qualified tradesman inexpensively to help improve your safety at home and the condition of your property.
