Roof

The roof is one of the most costly and important structures. I will examine the roof, its structure, shingles/tiles, flashing, gutters, downspouts and more.

Exterior

This includes the exterior walkways and doors, siding, eaves and soffits, fascia, paint, and other such elements of the home’s exterior.

HVAC

We will visually inspect the HVAC systems including ducts, filters, furnaces and air conditioning units.

Plumbing

We will visually inspect plumbing fixtures for proper function, including tubs, sinks, hoses, showers, and water shut-off valves, and look for leaks and other such flaws.

Electrical Systems

We will visually inspect both interior and exterior electrical systems including service drops, service masts, grounding, outlets, meters, circuit breakers, and other such systems.

Appliances

We will test and examine all major appliances that are permanent, like hot water heaters and other permanently installed appliances.

Doors, Windows & Interior

We will check doors and windows for proper sealing and drafts, signs of water damage, and more. We will also check the condition of all visible and accessible interior spaces.

Foundations, Basements and Crawl Spaces

We will examine the foundation, crawlspaces and basements to look for signs of things like past water damage, foundation cracking or shifting, and other such potentially expensive issues.
