Inspections include the home and the garage. Pools and spas are an additional fee. The client may request other items on the property to be inspected for additional fees. The inspector will look for safety hazards, possible future issues the clients should be aware of, and/or major property damages. Specifically, the following will be visually inspected; Structure, plumbing, sewer drains, electrical, heating systems, and A/C systems.
The client needs to understand that the inspector can not see everything, only what is visible and available for inspection at the time of the inspection. Weather and property conditions must be taken into consideration. The inspector can not see under floors, inside walls, or under the ground. The inspector can not guarantee nor offer a warranty on operations or the functionality of any item, or system of the home. The inspector can only offer a professional opinion on what was observed on the day of the inspection.
