With our highly detailed reports, you will have the knowledge and understanding, to make an educated buying decision - potentially saving you thousands of dollars in future repair costs.
Roof Inspection When access is possible, the inspector will also perform an inspection of the roof system and we may also use a high definition camera equipped drone to assist in the roof inspection.
We will examine the installation of the roof covering, and the water-resistant or waterproof moisture barrier material - known as the roof underlayment, as well as the home’s gutters to assess if the construction of the roof follows general best practices so that it can withstand common weather elements to repel water from entering the home.
Plumbing Inspection Home inspectors are responsible for examining the condition of plumbing elements that are visible and accessible to the inspector, as much of the pipe work is located behind the drywall and tiles in the home. The types of materials used and the condition of the material will be examined - as well as the water pressure, hardware and drainage. The water heater and any water using appliances will all be inspected.
The home's roof and plumbing are just some of the elements included in a home inspection. We also inspect the homes electrical, HVAC, foundation, walls, ceilings, floors and many other components of the home.
We are here to answer any questions about the process or to schedule an appointment. Contact our licensed and certified home inspector today at (773) 510-7138.
