Home Inspections and Appraisals by House Detective Home Structure Home Inspection Checklist

You can Save a great deal of money when having a home inspection done.  Here is a list of important things to look at and have checked by a professional.  

1.  Roof - A roof is a huge investment in a home.  The annual maintenance can provide protection and insure proper functioning.  By not having a home inspection done can result in ongoing, undetected leaks.

 

2.  Home Structure - Some things to be aware of are cracking, bulging, and moisture penetration in the foundation walls.  Check for rain gutters and proper grading around the foundation.

3.  Plumbing -  You want to look for leaking water supply and drain lines in the basement.  Leaking pipes will create other damage to the home if not addressed promptly.  

4.  Heating and Electrical -  Make sure all your heating needs are being addressed.  Is it functioning correctly. Also if there is a fire place a home inspection should be done to make sure that it meets code and it is properly vented.
