What We Inspect
We look for deficiencies in the main panel, subpanels, branch circuits, connecting devices, lighting fixtures, wiring and outlets.
We will operate and check all appliances such as ovens, dishwashers, microwaves, refrigerators, and more.
HEATING AND AIR INSPECTIONS
We examine the systems to determine if they are cooling and heating properly and safely. We try to determine if there are any defects and we routinely screen for carbon monoxide. Fireplaces are also inspected.
We inspect the insulation in the attic and determine if it is adequate for the home. We also make sure that it is spread out properly. We will give you an approximate R-value rating. We also check storm window, thermopane windows, etc.
We determine if the property is properly graded to insure that water is diverted away from the foundation. The presentation of the landscaping is also inspected.
We inspect the roof for shrinkage, crumbling, cracking, blistering, moisture, and any other defects. Interior load bearing walls are inspected for stress and warpage.
Masonry construction is inspected for settling, cracks, water penetration, etc. We check the condition of the siding, along with the condition of the caulking to determine if the exterior of the home is properly sealed.
