Checklist for a Smooth Home Inspection.
|We at Advantage
Inspection understand that many times the inspection process
is time sensitive and essential for an expedient closing. That
is why we have prepared this pre-inspection checklist so that
we can do our job efficiently. First, we would like to answer
some of the commonly asked questions about our service:
is a home inspection?
We are a real estate support service that evaluates
the overall structural, mechanical and electrical condition
of the home. We examine nearly all-visible construction components
and evaluate whether these items are still serviceable. We make
notations of items that may need attention to help preserve
their long-term integrity. We also give our client helpful advice
on general home maintenance.
this a code compliance inspection?
No. Many homes were built before codes were ever
established. When codes were established, many counties adopted
(enforced) their own version of these building codes. It would
be impossible to verify the governing code for every time period
in every county and make a compliance type inspection. We only
make code comparisons to current insulation standards, and any
safety-related items. (Examples: picket spacing too far apart
on a balcony handrail or the absence of a smoke detector).
