A standard inspection covers the physical structure and internal systems of the property. If you are buying a home or a commercial property, a standard inspection is a bare minimum that you need to identify cracks in the foundation, leakage in the roof, inefficient plumbing system, hazardous electrical wiring and outdated appliances to name a few.
Your seller might try to mask serious issues with a fresh coat of paint, sanded and polished hardwood floors and other quick touch-ups. And as an over-enthusiastic buyer, you may not be able to look through all the smokes and mirrors. This is where a home inspector can help you identify hidden defects and make an informed buying decision after calculating cost implications.
I will outline every major and minor issue in my report to give you a deeper understanding of what you are buying. In case some of the problematic areas need to be fixed immediately, my inspection report will help you prioritize repairs and upgrades after you move in.
