What’s Inspected During A Home Inspection
The purpose of a home inspection is to assess the condition of the residence at the time of the inspection using visual observations, simple tools and normal homeowner operational controls; and to report deficiencies of specific systems and components in accordance with the Standards of Practice issued by the Washington State Department of Licensing.
So, this means that a home inspection is an objective visual examination of the physical structure and systems of a home, from the roof to the foundation.
Below is a general list of items and areas inspected:
Exterior — Top to Bottom
Roof, chimney, siding, windows, attachments, drainage etc.
- Interior — Top to Bottom
Attic, electrical, plumbing, structural, mechanical etc.
Quantum Inspection offers commercial building evaluations in Spokane, Coeur d’Alene and the surrounding region. Our building inspection offers a thorough review of the building’s structure and its components to aid in your purchase decision. The commercial inspection report is intended to provide good value at a reduced fee. With this type of building inspection, our scope of work is similar to the ASTM E2018 Property Condition Assessment (PCA) but does not include our opinion of probable capital expenditures (reserves) or investigation of compliance with the local authorities. It does include a complete visual building inspection of the accessible portions of the building as well as the site. The commercial building evaluation report is a narrative style and include a description of the components, a discussion of their condition, and identification of deficiencies and deferred maintenance issues. Of course, our services can be customized in accordance with our client’s needs.
