What does a home inspection entail?

by admin — Categories: Home InspectionComments Off on What does a home inspection entail?

Home inspection as a profession started picking up in the mid 1970s. Today it has taken deep roots and everyone needs it during the process of buying a house. It does not matter whether it is the home inspectors in Will County or home inspectors in Kankakee County. A home inspection remains basically the same it only varies from one area to another.

Home inspectors have become vital. They have knowledge about all structures and how best they should be functioning.

Always get the property inspected just after the negotiations of the selling price, and signing of the purchase agreement. At this point the deal is not closed yet and you still have room to go back to the negotiation table and juggle on the pricing once more.

How is the process of inspection done?

Once the appointment for inspection is done, the inspection begins with a systematic exterior scrutiny.

Here is a list of areas that must be inspected;

·         The structural framework

The structure must be able weather any storm that comes its way. Soil will also determine which kind of structure can be erected on it. Home inspectors in Will County may inform you that because of too much loose soil on the ground you may need to dig a deep foundation. While home inspectors in Kankakee County may inform you that because of the rocky terrain

·         Outdoor

This inspection will include the driveways, windows, steps to the house, gardens, drainage system, and the balcony.

·         Roof

The roof of the building must be inspected for any aging, how water is drained from the roof, the chimneys must all be in top condition. If any repairs will be needed then the inspector will have to recommend what needs to be done

·         The plumbing system

For a house to be able to function well it has to have good plumbing; without this a house can be flooded with all dirt and water residue. .

·         Electrical wiring system

We all know that electricity can be a high risk factor in a home set up if not perfectly done.  The wiring must be professionally done. The electricity should be just enough to ensure the house is run well.

·         Air conditioning

The heating and air conditioning system must function well. There is always a change of seasons, therefore your house should be able to keep you warm during the cold season and cool when it is summer and very hot.

These are just some of the areas to be inspected. Once it is finished, a detailed report must be written down in the there. This report needs to be given to both the seller and buyer. This is because one needs to know what exactly they are buying and what is being sold.

Each county home inspection can never yield the same results. These are some of the areas where the major variations are; weather, soil structure, construction material.
