Why do I need a Home Inspector? Every home has defects. Some have more issues than others. When was the last time you crawled under a house to inspect for leaks? Probably never. Well, you probably have a slab. A professional, licensed Home Inspector has passed a rigorous certification exam, has experience, stays up to date with 15+ hours of learning and exams each year, and is trained what to look for when inspecting a home.
What do Home Inspectors look for? Home Inspectors use a set of standard items defined by the State of Alabama. Inspectors look at many specific items including the areas of the roof, exterior siding and windows, foundation, interior, attic, basement or crawlspace, electrical, heat and air systems and plumbing. Not all items are inspected however some items such as fireplace flues, sprinklers, underground pipes like main waste pipes, low voltage (such as built in audio) nor swimming pools are typically inspected. You may want to ask your inspector if they offer or can help you contract for these inspections separately.
