  • Electrical issues: Home inspectors often find problems with the electrical system such as outdated wiring, inadequate electrical panels, and other safety hazards.

  • Plumbing issues: Home inspectors often find leaks, poor water pressure, and other problems with the home's plumbing system.

  • HVAC issues: Home inspectors often find problems with the home's heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems, such as outdated equipment or poor ventilation.

  • Roofing issues: Home inspectors often find problems with the home's roof, such as missing or damaged shingles, leaks, and other issues that can lead to water damage.

  • Pest infestation: Home inspectors often find evidence of pests such as termites, carpenter ants, and other insects that can cause damage to the home.

  • Insulation: Home inspector often find issues such as missing or inadequate insulation, which can lead to energy inefficiency and higher utility bills.

  • Water damage: Home inspector may find water damage from leaks, flood, mold, and other issues that can lead to serious health hazards.
