Common problems

Construction defects and safety violations are surprisingly common, but the majority of home inspection findings tend to be routine in nature. Some, in fact, rear their unsightly heads as often as the sun rises; not just in older homes, but often in brand new ones, even before the smell of new paint has waned. The following, therefore, is a list of common defects likely to appear in a typical home inspection report:

ATTIC & ROOF             GROUND & GUTTERS            EXTERIOR WALLS
         
DOORS & WINDOWS    FOUNDATION & STRUCTURE   INTERIOR
         
ELECTRICAL   PLUMBING   HEATING & COOLING
