Sun Home Inspection tourWhat is a home inspection

Home inspection is a visual, non-evasive examination and assessment to detect defects and deficiencies of a home*1. It is intended to provide you with valuable knowledge about a home's major components and systems, and understanding the condition of the home as observed at the time of the inspection, so you can make a more informed decision.

A typical inspection includes:

  • Roof, vents, flashings, and 
    trim,
  • Gutters and downspouts,
  • Skylight, chimney and other roof penetrations,
  • Decks, stoops, porches, walkways, and railings,
  • Eaves, soffit and fascia,
  • Grading and drainage,
  • Basement, foundation and crawlspace,
  • Water penetration and foundation movement,
  • Heating systems,
  • Cooling systems,
  • Main water shut off valves,
  • Water heating system,
  • Interior plumbing fixtures and faucets,
  • Drainage sump pumps with accessible floats,
  • Electrical service line and meter box,
  • Main disconnect and service amperage,
  • Electrical panels, breakers and fuses,
  • Grounding and bonding,
  • GFCIs and AFCIs,

*1 If during our home inspection, we discover that you need a more detailed analysis of a system or structural component, we will recommend the appropriate professional. Such detailed analyses are rarely needed; however, situations occasionally exist that require a specialist to do a more in depth evaluation of a component.
