To do an adequate job, most home inspections take at least three hours, sometimes longer. A qualified inspector will follow Standards of Practice in conducting their inspection. The inspection consists of a physical inspection of the home with the purchaser present, followed by a written report detailing their findings. They report on the general condition of the home’s electrical, heating, and air systems, interior plumbing, roof, visible insulation, walls, ceilings, floors, windows, doors, foundation, and visible structure. A home inspection should cover:
Exterior, porch and deck (contiguous)
Foundation and walls Chimneys and roofs
Windows, doors and attics, visible insulation
Electrical components and plumbing
Central heating and air conditioning
Basement/crawl spaces and garage
Ceilings, floors and visible structure.
