Inspecting the Attic

By
Home Inspector with National Property Inspections

When was the last time you went in your attic? Or maybe you've never even seen it? There are a lot of things that could be happening in your attic that you might be unaware of, such as pest infestation, leaks, sagging, lack of insulation, etc. By having a professional inspect the attic, you could catch any potential problems before they become bigger concerns.

An attic inspection is part of a general home inspection. The first thing a professional will check is the sheathing and rafters. The inspector will note any obvious cracks or sagging in the supporting structure and check for any insect damage, rot or water penetration. 

The professional will also check the insulation in the attic and make sure there is the adequate amount of insulation according to your local area's requirements. Lastly, the inspector will check if there is any equipment in the attic and if the bathroom fan vent is installed correctly. The inspector will note areas in need of maintenance and recommend repairs.
