What is a Home Inspection?
A home inspection is a non-invasive examination of the condition of a home, often in connection with the sale of that home. It is carried out by a home inspector who has special equipment and training to carry out such inspections. A home inspection is important because it allows the consumer to make an informed decision about buying or selling a home. A thorough inspection will typically include the roof, basement, crawl space, attic, heating and cooling system, plumbing, electrical, foundation, and other aspects of the structure.
