Residential Home Inspection
A residential home inspection includes a visual inspection of all the major components of the home. The inspector will start with the exterior evaluating the condition of the siding, trim and windows. Also inspected is the foundation, driveway, sidewalks, grade, air-conditioner, electrical, porches and decks. After a thorough inspection of the roof and any chimneys, the inspector will move to the interior working from the attic to the basement testing and operating electrical outlets and lights, bathrooms, fixed kitchen appliances, windows and doors; and visually inspecting walls, ceilings and floors. After completing the structural inspection the HVAC system will be operated and evaluated along with the water heater and electric panel. Although this is not a complete list of the entire process it should give a buyer an idea of what is covered. Again, the purpose of this inspection is to provide home buyers with as much information as possible and limit the amount of risk involved in what is usually a person’s largest investment.
Pre-Listing Seller’s Inspection
This inspection can be very helpful to the home seller who wants to get top dollar for their home. Having a pre-listing inspection will enable you to be ahead of the game and repair any items found before your buyer’s home inspector points them out to his clients. Some buyers, who are already nervous about the home buying process can get cold feet when they hear the list of items to repair adding up. Following our inspection you will have the opportunity to eliminate those items that either kill the deal or provide the buyer with renegotiating power.
At Lancaster Inspection Company we also have pricing packages that include termite and radon inspections. On the average home these two services, along with a home inspection, will provide everything you need, but sometimes additional services are a good idea. If fireplaces are present (especially those with older clay tile flues) we recommend our clients consider having a level 2 chimney inspection. If the home was built after 1980 we also recommend a sewer camera inspections. Both the chimney and sewer inspections utilize the expertise of our contractors who will use specialized cameras to investigate areas that would otherwise be unseen. Since both chimney and sewer line repair can be expensive, it is always a good idea to invest in these inspections.
