What Do Home Inspections Include?
Owner and certified home inspector Dave “Fuzzy” Moersen follows the standards of practice for home inspections as developed by the American Society of Home Inspectors. Licensed as a general contractor, he knows what he should and should not be seeing in a home. A Homecheckit inspection includes the following assessments:
- Structural components including the foundation, framing, and roof
- Exterior items including wall coverings, flashing, trim, exterior doors, decks, balconies, porches, eaves, soffits, fascia, grading, drainage, walkways, driveways, and patios
- Air conditioning
- Interior walls, ceilings, floors, doors, and windows; most installed appliances
- Insulation and ventilation
- Fireplaces and fuel-burning appliances
Address concerns about mold or radon by purchasing these specialty inspections, which can be performed at the same time as your home inspection. For more details about our inspection process, review this list:
Personalized Attention for Every Client
At Homecheckit, we highly recommend that the buyer be present for the inspection as we like to explain the present conditions and address any questions while on site. We provide a summary report immediately after the inspection is completed. This makes it possible for the client and real estate agent to contact the listing agent with an addendum of the client’s requests necessary to making an offer. Our clients love this service, as many other inspection companies take one to two days to issue a report. In addition to the convenient summary, we email our full, color-coded report to clients within 15 minutes of finishing their home inspection.
We make our reports as helpful as possible. You can count on the following:
List of systems and components that in our professional judgment are not functioning properly, are deficient, unsafe, or near the end of their service lives.
Recommendations for corrections or monitoring of the deficiencies.
Notations of items needing further evaluation.
Notations of any items we were not able to inspect (but normally are) and the reason why.
Comprehensive report with photos and color coded by its state of repair.
