Home inspections address age and likely the expected service life of components within a home such as but, not limited to roof covering, plumbing systems, HVAC systems and may include recommended corrective action of these visible defects or safety concerns. Home Inspector will not provide a itemized list of needed repairs; systems recommended for further review will become the sole responsibility of the licensed tradesman that follows.
Detached structures are not included within a standard home inspection and can be inspected for an additional fee. These additional structures, buildings, barns, Etc. will not be inspected unless specifically identified.
