Though most people get a full home inspection done before buying or selling a property, many are still not aware of what the inspection actually includes and the aspects of a home that an inspector will assess.

Professional home inspections are worth it. If you are looking to purchase a home, a home inspection can be your ace up the sleeve. You can use the report from a home inspection company to drive down the tabled bids so that you save significantly.

That being said, it is important to understand what a home inspection service can offer you.

The exterior

When a home inspector visits a property, he/she will be required to create a detailed assessment report. A home inspection may take anywhere between one and three hours depending on the size of the property, and the location. When it comes to exterior of the property, a home inspector will first go about inspecting the walls of the property. This is important in assessing whether a property may be prone to timber pest infestations or water seepage. A home inspector will also check whether the foundations of a property are safe, and void of any cracks or damage. Grading is another important part of the home inspection process. A professional home inspection service will determine whether the grading around your property slopes away from it. This is important because it will give potential homeowners and buyers a better understanding of the damage that may be caused by flooding. Finally, a home inspector will also inspect the roof to check whether roofing or tiles are secured and safe.

The interior

With regard to the interior of a home, a home inspector will be primarily concerned with the plumbing. An inspector will check for leaks in faucets, showers and other plumbing. Once the home inspection is complete, a professional service will be able to provide detailed information regarding the repair costs associated with a property. However, it is important to remember that home inspection is a completely visual process. Unless deficiencies are visually noticeable, they will go undetected by a professional home inspector
