Home inspections play a crucial role in the home buying process, as they encompass a comprehensive assessment of various aspects. They are vital for a livable home. Here’s a breakdown of what home inspectors typically examine:
Exterior: The inspector scrutinizes the exterior of the property, looking for any cracks, missing siding, or roof damage that could potentially lead to water damage or allow pests to infiltrate. This assessment may also include an inspection of the foundation if it’s visible.
Interior: Similar to the exterior, the interior of the home is evaluated for signs of damage to walls, cabinets, windows, and other visible components. We at Berry Group Inspection is here to serve you with the best.
Plumbing: The plumbing inspection involves checking for visible leaks, ensuring the proper functionality of faucets, showerheads, and toilets, and verifying that exposed pipes are not damaged or dangerously outdated.
Electrical: The inspector tests all electrical outlets, ensuring the presence of working ground circuit interrupters and examining the electrical panel for potential issues.
HVAC System: The inspection covers the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system, assessing the furnace and air conditioner (if present) to ensure they are in working order. This may also include an examination of ductwork.
