Interior and Exterior Inspection
When a building inspector visits a property, they use their experience to know exactly what and where to look. They will thoroughly inspect all rooms including bedrooms, kitchens, bathrooms, and laundry for both major and minor defects. Minor defects can be addressed by the buyer at their discretion while major ones need attention as they could cause more damage if left unaddressed. The inspector will also check the roof void and accessible subfloor.
A building inspection includes checking the roof, gutters, downpipes, and outside area. Clear View Property Inspections uses drone technology for high-up roof inspections on two-story homes. They also use a moisture meter and thermal camera if needed to find hidden issues. You’ll get a detailed report and a follow-up call from the inspector afterward.
Identifying Potential Problems
Many companies rush their inspections and don’t thoroughly check for hidden problems. They prioritize speed over thoroughness, with inspectors usually limited to just one hour regardless of property size. Also, most companies use inspectors who may not be fully qualified in both building and pest control.
It’s good to know that doing your own inspection can help spot some issues, but it’s no substitute for a professional building and pest inspection. A licensed inspector will give you a comprehensive and impartial assessment because they have the skills to find problems that an untrained person might miss.
