Once exterior checks are completed, I’ll perform an exhaustive evaluation of the plumbing, electrical, and heating/cooling systems of the property.
I usually work through the building in a logical sequence, one room at a time and one floor at a time. All general wall and floor finish conditions will be noted throughout the building. Appliances and bath fixtures will all be tested as will all electrical and telephone outlets. If you requested other tests or special inspections, they will be done at the appropriate time during the home inspection.
The entire inspection should take no longer than three hours. However, situations vary with each property. I’ll discuss the anticipated time frame with you when you call to book your appointment.
