What's Inspected During A Home Inspection

The purpose of a generalist home inspection is to identify any significant defects or adverse conditions that would warrant evaluation or remedy by a specialist.  home inspection is a limited, non-invasive examination of the condition of a home, often in connection with the sale of that home. Home inspections are usually conducted by a home inspector who has the training and certifications to perform such inspections. The inspector prepares and delivers to the client a written report of findings. The client then uses the knowledge gained to make informed decisions about their pending real estate purchase. The home inspector describes the condition of the home at the time of inspection but does not guarantee future condition, efficiency, or life expectancy of systems or components. It provides you with the information needed to make confident decisions regarding the suitability of the home.
