Home Inspection Basics

We specialize in engineering inspired inspections related to real estate sales. A “home inspection” is a noninvasive, physical examination of the mechanical, electrical, plumbing systems or the structural and essential components of a residential dwelling. A home inspection is designed to identify material defects in those systems, structures and components (style or aesthetics shall not be considered in determining whether a system, structure, or component is defective). A “material defect” is a condition that significantly affects the value, desirability, habitability, or safety of the dwelling.
