What Does A Home Inspector Look For?


Mahwah NJ Home Inspection ServicesWhen you hire a home inspector prior to buying or selling a home there is usually a checklist of areas to be inspected. A professional home inspector will examine the overall structure of the house, including foundation, roof, siding, flooring, windows and doors. Electrical connections are looked at, including outlets, switches, fixtures and appliances. Another area of inspection would be plumbing, including pipes, drains, water pressure, faucets and toilets. Heating and air-conditioning are also inspected. All of these things are included in the report provided to you. Your Home Inspector LLC is happy to share our checklist with homeowners and discuss problems discovered by a home inspection at their house.
