Detailed Home Inspection Checklist & Detailed Reports
A home inspection entails more than flickering on the lights and ensuring the toilets flush appropriately. Lifeline Home Inspections professionals look into so much more. We have listed a handful of areas that comprise a home to better give you an idea of the close up inspection we provide. They are, but not limited to the following:
Grounds & Drainage Inspection: Proper grading drainage away from the house, evidence of standing water, leaks from septic tank or leach field, yard or landscaping inspection, safety hazards above the roof; i.e. tree branches, exterior buildings and structures; i.e. sheds, garages and fence durability, deck and stairs, driveways, sidewalks, patios, and downspout drainage directed away from the house. Lifeline Home Inspections cover the function and strength of the ground aspects and look for any damage or improper functions.
Structural Inspection: Lifeline Home Inspections team members inspect structural components for weakness or threatening damage or deterioration. We check that fascia and ridge board lines are in proper alignment and check the house’s sides for any appearing bowing or sagging. Window and door frames are checked for imperfections and a visible inspection of structure to look for any signs of detrimental cracking and properly alignment is performed. Rooftops are also thoroughly gone over to ensure there is no damage or faulty materials.
Exterior Inspection: Surfaces on the building’s exterior are inspected from top to bottom by our proficient professionals. Lifeline Home Inspections carefully audits the exterior surfaces, taking note of the following; clearance between siding materials and the ground, siding condition, masonry veneers or stucco exteriors, vegetation interference; i.e. vines growing into the exterior, exterior paint defects, and search for stains or molds.
Utilities Inspection: Electrical wiring is carefully inspected for each outlet, light switch, appliance and anywhere that services electricity to ensure there is no bad wiring or safety hazards. Plumbing is also checked through sinks, toilets, and appliances throughout the home. Light fixtures, ceiling fans and plumbing fixtures are inspected.
Interior Inspection: Floors are inspected for leveling concerns, along with materials condition; i.e. carpet, tile and grout, and hardwood. Walls and ceilings are inspected for any issues, HVAC system is checked, paint or wallpaper condition, insulation, appliances, cabinetry, drawers, exhaust fans, staircases and handrails, adequate caulking in necessary areas, weather stripping if needed, sinks, tubs, showers and toilets in functioning order, water pressure, rust issues, stains, visual signs of mold and so much more.
