The Typical home inspection

Maintenance Items, Major Unsatisfactory Items, Safety Issues, and Informational/Maintenance Information
We always find things in most of the categories whether it is a New Construction, a Mid-Century Ranch, Two or Three Story Victorian, Log Home, Loft, or a 100(+/-) year old Home with a stone foundation and a sub-basement.

A home inspection is an objective non-invasive visual examination of the physical structure and systems of a house, from the roof to the foundation.

The standard home inspection is a snap shot of the homes condition at the time of the inspection. Typically covering the conditions of the home’s heating/cooling and interior plumbing/electrical systems, roof, attic, visible insulation, walls, ceilings, floors, windows/doors, foundation, basement, and structural components. Every home inspection I perform meets the ASHI Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics which outlines what you should expect.

Serviceable – Everything that is satisfactory a the time of the inspection.
Concealed – Concealed conditions that can not be seen including but not limited to conditions,latent defects, consequential damages that are behind walls, under floors, bellow grade whether purposely hidden or not.
Maintenance – Conditions that are generally under $500 and not a health or life safety issue including deferred maintenance.
Unsatisfactory – Typically any condition costing over $500 to repair/replace/correct or a health and life safety issue.
General Notes – General recommendations, maintenance advice and other supplementary information.

Without Mark's expertise, I may have walked

My inspector was Mark Goodman. He was on time, VERY knowledgeable, thorough, and detail-oriented — just what I needed in a home inspector. The house was a little older (built in the early 50’s). He identified some asbestos in the basement that hadn’t been disclosed. He also explained safety issues and what to look for in an asbestos-abatement company. Without ...
