What Does A Home Inspector Look For? | Your Home Inspector LLC Mahwah NJ
When you hire a home inspector prior to buying or selling a home he will have a checklist of areas to be examined. Usually home inspectors look at the overall structure of the house, including foundation, roof, floors, windows and doors. The electrical functions of the house are inspected, including outlets and switches, fixtures and appliances. Plumbing is also on the the checklist. This would include pipes, drains, water pressure, faucets and toilets. Heating and air-conditioning systems are inspected as well. Your Home Inspector is happy to share the checklist with our New Jersey clients and discuss common problems uncovered by home inspections during a routine examination.
