Exterior features: Inspectors examine the exterior elements such as siding, windows, doors, decks, patios, and the condition of the landscaping. 3. Interior features: They inspect the interior components, including walls, ceilings, floors, stairs, windows, doors, and any installed systems like plumbing, electrical, and HVAC. 4. Roofing: Inspectors assess the condition and age of the roof, looking for any signs of damage, leaks, or necessary repairs. 5. Plumbing system: They examine the plumbing system, including pipes, fixtures, toilets, showers, tubs, and water heater, to ensure proper functionality. 6. Electrical system: Inspectors check the electrical panel, wiring, outlets, lighting fixtures, and safety devices to identify any potential hazards or code violations. 7. HVAC system: They assess the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system to verify if it is in proper working condition and adequately heating or cooling the home. 8. Insulation and ventilation: Inspectors evaluate the insulation levels, ventilation systems, and overall energy efficiency of the property. 9. Appliances: They may test and evaluate the functionality of various appliances like stoves, refrigerators, dishwashers, and laundry machines. After the inspection, the home inspection company prepares a detailed report that outlines their findings, including any observed issues or recommended repairs.
