Structural Inspections

Structural inspections help a homebuyer or homeowner to evaluate the integrity of a home’s structure, systems, and features. Getting a Real Estate Pre-Purchase Inspection can help a homebuyer make a purchasing decision, and getting a New Home Warranty Inspection can help a homeowner make the right repairs and meet building codes.

When you survey a property yourself, there are a few things that are easy to spot, like mold and mildew, water damage, buckling shingles, and so forth. A licensed home inspector looks for these things and more. Your home inspector will thoroughly survey both the interior and exterior of the property. By doing so, he gets a good idea of the functions and features of the home. With an extensive knowledge of home building and local building codes, your home inspector can let you know if there are any emergency issues, health hazards, or code violations that need to be addressed. After a structural inspection, you’ll get a rundown of what repairs are most urgent and worth your investment.

What’s Involved in a Structural Inspection?

When we do a structural inspection, we check both the interior and exterior of the home. Here are just a few things we check for when checking the outside of the home:

  • Improper drainage
  • Shingles that are buckled, warped, or missing
  • Windows that are not completely sealed or are missing screens
  • Rot or mildew on window sills and siding
  • Bumps or bubbles in siding
  • Insecure exterior doors

Here are a few things we look for when checking the inside of the home:

  • Water damage
  • Mold and mildew
  • Loose plaster
  • Peeling paint
  • Damaged or splintered mouldings and trim
  • Cosmetic damage to appliances, fixtures, and the HVAC system
  • Blocked or broken plumbing
  • Faulty electrical wiring
  • HVAC inefficiencies
