What to Expect from Your Inspection

Home Inspectors Of Utah Checking Electric Panel with Infrared Device

I’ll inspect the structure, systems, and components of the home, inside and out, from the foundation to the roof, using the latest tools and technology.

I encourage you to attend your inspection so that I can describe my process, explain my findings, point out important maintenance items, and answer all of your questions.

Following my evaluation, I’ll compile my findings in an easy-to-read report, which will include detailed descriptions and high-resolution digital photos of any issues I’ve discovered. I’ll email you your report within 24 hours and my job isn’t finished until you understand everything in it.

What is included in a home inspection?

As a Certified Professional Inspector trained by InterNACHI, I adhere to a comprehensive Residential Standards of Practice.
This means that I will inspect all of the following when visible and accessible:

Roof

The roof is one of the most costly and important structures. We will examine the roof, its structure, shingles/tiles, flashing, gutters, downspouts and more.

Exterior

This includes the exterior walkways and doors, siding, eaves and soffits, fascia, paint, and other such elements of the home’s exterior.

HVAC

We will visually inspect the HVAC systems including ducts, filters, furnaces and air conditioning units.

Plumbing

We will visually inspect plumbing fixtures for proper function, including tubs, sinks, hoses, showers, and water shut-off valves, and look for leaks and other such flaws.

Electrical Systems

We will visually inspect both interior and exterior electrical systems including service drops, service masts, grounding, outlets, meters, circuit breakers, and other such systems.

Appliances

We will test and examine all major appliances like hot water heaters, washers and dryers, dishwashers, refrigerators, freezers, and more.

Doors, Windows & Interior

We will check doors and windows for proper sealing and drafts, signs of mold or water damage, and more. We will also check the condition of all interior spaces.

Foundations, Basements and Crawl Spaces

We will examine the foundation, crawlspaces and basements to look for signs of things like past water damage, foundation cracking or shifting, and other such potentially expensive issues.
