You know that the home inspection is a crucial part of the home-buying process. However, have you ever wondered just what an inspection covers (and what it doesn’t)? At Inspecticore of Long Island, we don’t want our home inspection process to be a mystery. Here’s what you can expect from any of our complete visual residential inspections.
You want a home with a solid foundation—or what your dad might call “good bones.” Therefore, we start with a visual assessment of the house’s foundation, the interior and exterior structural condition, roof structure and condition, attic areas, and fireplace. We also take a look at the ventilation and insulation to see whether everything is up to code and in good condition. Our home inspectors also look for signs of water damage throughout the house.
A house can have a good foundation, but if its systems aren’t up to par, you may need to go back to the negotiating table. Our visual home inspections thoroughly assess your home’s systems, including HVAC, ducts, kitchen appliances, water heater, plumbing fixtures, electrical service box, and receptacles. We also take a look at all the bathrooms and utility rooms to make sure everything seems to be in good working condition.
At Inspecticore, we offer a few additional home inspection services. You can select any of the following specialty services individually or as an add-on to your basic home inspection:
- Mold inspection
- Termite inspection
- Stucco inspections (also called EIFS inspections)
- Pools & spas
- Sprinkler systems
- Air quality
