Role of a Home Inspection
Role of a Home InspectionHome inspectors caution that home inspections are not intended to note every tiny defect and they aren’t there to "pass or fail a house." Instead, the home inspectors job is to describe the overall condition of the home and indicate which components and systems may need repair or replacement, according to the American Society of Home Inspectors.
\nA home inspector’s standard report will cover the condition of the following:
- Heating system;
- Central air-conditioning system (temperature permitting);
- Interior plumbing and electrical systems;
- Roof, attic, and visible insulation;
- Walls, ceilings, floors, windows, and doors;
- Foundation, basement, and structural components.
Some larger home inspection companies may offer even additional reports, such as for termite inspection and radon testing. Buyers should accompany home inspectors during the inspection of the house and take a notebook or voice recorder and camera to use as future reference.
