What is a Home Inspection?

A home inspection is a professional evaluation of the condition of a house. It determines the home’s suitability for purchase or rental purposes. Home inspections are integral to real estate transactions all over the US. Inspections prevent fraudulent activities, safeguard the buyer’s money, and help a seller get a fair price for what his property is worth.

During a home inspection, an inspector looks at various aspects of the house; these include the structural and functional components. The inspector will look at the home’s structural integrity, safety, heating and cooling systems, electrical wiring, plumbing and drainage systems, roofing materials, foundation and basement conditions, and exterior walls and windows. He will also inspect appliances like stoves and refrigerators for safety and to ensure they function properly.

A home inspection typically takes two hours to complete, but this time can vary and is affected by location, age, and house size. The home inspector presents the homeowner with a detailed report at the end of the inspection. These reports include photos with notes on what he or she has found during their inspection.

About Our Home Inspections in Bristol

Our inspections give you much more than just peace of mind. You actually get to learn about basic systems of the home, how they work, what condition they are in, and what future maintenance is necessary. In addition to a thorough and detailed inspection of the home (structure, foundation, exterior, plumbing, heating, cooling, electrical, interiors, garage, attic, roofing, grounds, and much more), we also include an infrared scan. This allows us to more accurately inspect the heating and cooling system as well as find hidden moisture or insufficient insulation inside walls. The digital report with color photos is delivered by email within 24 hours, and can be postmarked for next day mail.
