The Most Important Items On Your Home Inspection Report

Waiting for the completed home inspection report can induce anxiety in even the most confident buyers. If you are the seller, you may be fraught with nerves as you await the final verdict to find out which unknown issues could interfere with the sale of your home. GreenLInk Home Inspections has inspected and assessed over 5,000 houses in the last 20 years, as an ASHI (American Society of Home Inspectors) certified inspector and professional engineer. We’ll let you in on some of the most important components you will see on the home inspection report.

Home Buyer Inspections

Structure & Foundation

Structural issues, such as the foundation and framing concerns, are among the most important items noted on the home inspection report. We are often referred by other home inspectors and real estate agents to assess potential structural concerns. This is why it would serve you well to have a professional engineer who is well-versed in analyzing these issues and preparing reports for many clients with structural concerns.

The HVAC System

At GreenLInk Home Inspections, we will thoroughly inspect the home’s heating and cooling system. This will be an important result of the report since a major flaw found within this system would indicate the need for a costly repair in the near future. Our goal is to arm you with information so that you can make a wise investment for your family.

Electrical & Plumbing

If there are major issues found with either the electrical or plumbing system in a house, we will review them with you in the final report with mitigation options and recommendations. Major issues with either the electrical wiring or plumbing systems would necessitate costly repairs. We will present you with the facts about the home so that you can determine which issues you are willing to inherit.

The Roof

We will analyze the exterior of your property, including the roof, among other outdoor components. Not all homeowners are even aware that they have any issues with their roofs because they aren’t always obvious. A roof that needs to be replaced could be one of the biggest deal breakers in a real estate transaction.
