Eco-Friendly Home Inspection Checklist
You know that one of the grandest investments you make in your entire life is in your dwelling place. Wise choices before you "take the leap" make sense. Wise choices like a Home Inspection from a certified professional. (resources below)
A Certified Home Inspector will review the "grand investment" with a critical eye and you will benefit.
S/he will investigate the structural elements considering: construction of walls, ceilings, floors, roof and foundation. S/he will take a close look at the exterior: the site itself- grading, elevation, drainage and so forth, and check out the condition of other outside features like your garage, fences and sidewalks and the landscaping.
There is the fascia, trim, and, of course there are doors and windows to review inside and out, as well as the roof and, attic. Did I mention the gutters? It is a logical progression: plumbing, the systems in the property, electrical, appliances.
