How to Look for a Good Home Inspector (part 1 of 2)


Are you out in the market to buy or sell a house, then surely you must know how to look for a good home inspector.

Home inspectors are usually tasked to assess or appraise the present condition of a house or real estate property, as a way of ensuring consumer protection and reliability of a house or property being bought or sold in the market.

A home inspection process is usually a thorough yet non-invasive examination or assessment on a current condition of the house. Home inspectors are carefully trained and licensed to carry out their inspections or examinations and they usually carry with them special equipment that aid them in conducting the assessment.After the thorough examination, the home inspector then issues a report that is released to the client and regulating bodies that ensure consumer protection and welfare.

Usual inspection procedures involve thorough examinations of the home’s interior structure, basement, roof, heating or cooling system, water heating system, exterior structure, plumbing, electrical system and other aspects of the house or building to check for faulty installation processes or fixtures, especially improper or substandard building practices.

This is also true with homes that require extensive repairs or remodeling, including general maintenance issues, including but not limited to fire and safety concerns.

Home owners or buyers usually hire a home inspection service prior to selling or buying their homes. A home inspector is then sent over to the property being considered and  conducts a thorough examination of a home to inspect and examine for potential systems or components requiring attention, most especially when it deals with structural integrity or standard installation or fixture set-up.
