What Aspects of a Home Inspection Are Often “Under” Inspected or Even Missed?
At Dynamic Inspections, we recognize the importance of a comprehensive evaluation when it comes to making a wise investment in a property. Our skilled home inspectors are extensively trained to thoroughly examine various facets of a house.
Not all inspectors are the same, we dive deep!
However, there are specific areas that can easily escape notice during the inspection procedure. Please note, this article is to protect you and let you know that just because a home was “looked at”, it doesn’t mean that the home was “inspected” properly. Here is a thorough walk through of what we often caution customers to double check on their reports so as not to miss anything.
Roof and Loft Spaces: The roof is an essential element of any residence, and its condition should never be underestimated. While some inspectors may conduct a visual inspection from ground level, at Dynamic Inspections, we take it a step further. Our specialists will ascend to the roof to conduct an intricate examination, ensuring an accurate assessment of its state. Moreover, we diligently scrutinize loft spaces as they frequently unveil critical information regarding insulation, ventilation, and potential concerns like leaks or infestations by pests.
Electrical System: The electrical system is a vital component of a home, and a cursory visual inspection is inadequate. At Dynamic Inspections, we comprehend the significance of a thorough evaluation. Our inspectors go beyond the fundamentals and execute extensive checks. We test illumination, outlets, and circuit breakers to ensure the functionality and safety of the electrical system.
Plumbing and Drainage: Plumbing and drainage systems are indispensable for the smooth operation of a dwelling, yet they are frequently overlooked during inspections. At Dynamic Inspections, we accord due attention to plumbing and drainage. Our inspectors meticulously examine potential leaks, assess potential water damage, and test the functionality of fixtures such as faucets, toilets, and showers. Furthermore, we pay meticulous attention to the drainage system, inspecting downspouts, gutters, and the grading around the property to ensure efficient water flow away from the foundation.
Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) Systems: At Dynamic Inspections, we acknowledge the importance of a comfortable and healthy living environment. Therefore, we accord significant importance to HVAC systems. Our inspectors evaluate the functionality of heating and cooling systems, inspect air filters, and assess the condition of ductwork. We firmly believe that neglecting this facet of the inspection can result in unforeseen expenses in the future and indoor air quality which is why we provide a comprehensive assessment.
Foundation and Structural Components: The foundation forms the bedrock of a residence, and any issues with it can have substantial implications for safety and stability. At Dynamic Inspections, we prioritize inspecting the foundation and structural components. Our experts meticulously scrutinize for cracks, indications of settling, or moisture damage. We also examine walls, floors, and ceilings to identify any structural concerns that warrant further evaluation.
Exterior Features: While the interior of a home often takes center stage during inspections, it is essential not to overlook the exterior features. At Dynamic Inspections, we comprehend the importance of assessing the condition of the siding, windows, doors, and exterior structures like decks or porches. We also conduct meticulous inspections of these areas to identify signs of water damage, rot, or pest infestation. Our objective is to provide a comprehensive evaluation encompassing the entire property.
Environmental Hazards: At Dynamic Inspections, the well-being and safety of our clients are paramount. We remain vigilant in identifying potential environmental hazards that might be present in a home. Our inspectors are experienced and trained to detect the presence of mold, radon, asbestos, lead-based paint, indoor air quality, and other harmful contaminants. If necessary, we may recommend specialized testing or further evaluation to ensure a thorough assessment.
Crawl Spaces and Basements: Crawl spaces and basements are often overlooked zones, yet they can disclose vital information about the condition of a home. At Dynamic Inspections, we fully recognize the importance of conducting meticulous inspections in these areas. Our inspectors meticulously examine crawl spaces and basements for signs of water infiltration, moisture damage, pest infestations, or structural issues. We also evaluate ventilation and insulation to guarantee optimal conditions.
While we endeavor to conduct thorough inspections, it is essential to acknowledge that no inspection is flawless, and some issues may still elude detection. We encourage buyers to adopt a proactive approach, pose queries, and consider additional inspections or evaluations should any concerns arise during the process. At Dynamic Inspections, we remain committed to providing our clients with the most comprehensive and accurate property assessment to empower them to make informed decisions.
