Scope of the Home Inspection

Below is a generalized list of items included in our full home inspection. There is not enough space here to list everything that will be inspected. Parts of a house that would have to be damaged or are unsafe to inspect will not be inspected. If you have any questions, please call me.

Structure - The foundation, floors, framework, chimney. This will also include the inspector entering the crawl space, basement and attic when applicable, and if possible. I have no problem entering almost all attics and crawl spaces.

Electrical - Service line, capabilities (volts/amps), main breaker, fuse/breaker box (location and internal condition) proper grounding, correct sizing of breakers and/or fuses, panels (location and internal condition), wiring installation, condition of wiring, electrical distribution, operation of GFCI/AFCI's, switches and outlets, light fixtures.
