Single Family Dwellings

The typical inspection starts at the exterior of the home applying a macro and micro approach to look at both the big picture and all the thumb details.

The next step is to inspect the roof and evaluate not only the roof surface, but also the chimney & flashings, any ventilation systems, the electrical service entrance, the plumbing stack, and any other systems or components located on the roof.

thumb Next the inspection moves inside the house, starting at the bottom floor or basement, working up through the home into the attic.  While inside such components as the structure, the heating and cooling systems, the electrical and plumbing systems, the interior finishes, the insulation and ventilation, and accessories such as fireplaces are inspected.
