The Inspection Tour
  The ASHI Virtual Home Inspection Tour
Take the ASHI Virtual Home Inspection Tour now to learn about some common problems found during a home inspection. Launch the tour now.

During the course of our inspection, the following areas will be considered:

The foundation will be checked for type and visible condition, including evidence of damage, deterioration or settling. We will examine all accessible crawl areas.

The structure will be examined for adequacy of exposed framing, significant damage or deterioration, related settlement and building modifications. The examination will include a thorough check of exterior and interior surfaces, floor condition, attic framing and insulation.

We check for type and condition of supply and waste lines, including drains, vents and traps. Visible leakage or weaknesses in the system will be noted. The water heater and heating system will be analyzed for type and condition.

The electric service and branch wiring, where visible, will be checked for capacity and condition. Unsafe electrical practices (unprotected conductors, ungrounded plugs, faulty wiring) will also be pointed out.

During the inspection, the type of roof will be identified and its condition assessed. Visible signs of leakage will be noted and discussed. Conditions of gutters, downspouts, flashing and rain caps will also be noted.

Non-system Checkpoints
These are the items that do not fit conveniently into the other five classifications. Our inspection includes a visual examination of fireplaces, patio and sidewalks, fencing and retaining walls, and the identification of security and safety systems.
