WHAT TO EXPECT
A residential home inspection is a visual, non-invasive inspection of many different components of the home. We will examine the electrical wiring, plumbing, HVAC equipment, and more. After completing the home inspection, you will receive a detailed report with any findings. CSI will also provide recommendations on what type of contractor you will need and be available for any follow-up questions.

We will examine the following components of the home where accessible and safe to do so:
First, we will examine the foundation of the home and the overall construction. This includes checking if siding appears loose or damaged, the functionality of the windows and doors and if there is any rot.
An exterior inspection includes the roof, gutter system, and crawlspaces. We will also check the surrounding landscape such as walkways, driveways, steps, decks, fencing and patios, and whether the landscape allows for proper drainage.
This covers everything from the chimney, skylights, attic, basement, walls, floors, and ceilings. We will point out any issues found and include them in the home inspection report. Common issues include water damage, loose plaster, damaged fixtures, cracks, and more.
Electrical components include light fixtures, electrical outlets, and major appliances. They will also check the HVAC unit for proper function.
The home inspection will also cover bathroom and kitchen fixtures as well as the home's water heating system.
