Questions for a Home Inspection

A house is a large investment and you want to make sure the home you are buying is well built. Sometimes problems with a house, like structural, drainage or plumbing issues, are not easily seen by potential buyers. That is why any new residential or commercial property you purchase should be checked by a trained home inspector. A home inspector can make sure the house was built according to standard construction codes, and that there are no issues with the home. The following are common questions to ask home inspectors.

  • Do they need to be licensed?
    This depends on your state. Some mandate that all home inspectors need a license, while others do not. In any case, make sure the inspector you are using has at least been trained in home inspection and taken classes.

  • What does the inspector look at?
    A good inspector will follow a checklist to look at all parts of the building. He will examine the structural elements like the walls, ceiling, floor and foundations. He will study the roof as well as the exterior of the house, even taking note of the yard. He will inspect electrical, plumbing and ventilation systems to make sure they are working properly. When he is finished, he will hand the completed checklist over to the homeowner.

  • What do I do if there is a problem?
    First, determine how big of a problem there is. Some building issues can be fixed without spending a good deal of money. Also if the seller is made aware of the problem, sometimes they will fix the issue for the buyer. However, major repair work, such as damage to the foundation, or other severe structural damage, merits serious consideration as to whether you should purchase this property.

    Home and building inspectors must pass certain certifications in order to become licensed. They must have also taken certain training courses. It's not easy to be an inspector, as there are many guidelines and rules to follow. Background knowledge of real estate, structural and mechanical engineering, and/or construction are pluses, but not necessarily required.

    Skill sets to have in the inspection business include great communication and interpersonal skills, flexible schedules, computer skills to fill out and file reports, and general knowledge of the real estate business. Obviously, technical proficiency in inspecting a home or other structure is required. This can occur through a combination of courses and on-the-job training.

    It's important to be able to work well with people, and spend time on-site. Crawling under homes and in attics is a common occurrence, so inspectors also need to have a thick skin when it comes to these less savory aspects of the job.

    Inspectors offer many services, including water testing and radon testing, as well as checking for pests like termites in houses, apartments, and offices. They must make sure the entire structure is sound, with no cracks in the foundation, no water damage, and proper ventilation. They must also make sure the structure has clear exits in case of fire, the plumbing is working correctly, the electric heat is working, and the roof is sound.

    While home and building inspectors have a set list of check marks to make during their assessment of a residential house, apartment, or commercial office building, the reporting style is different between professionals. Many use online software to enter their reports. They are then printed out and given to all parties.

    All inspectors must be certified, providing quality, efficient reports for all types of residential and commercial home and building inspections.
