A home inspection is a thorough examination of a home's condition, including its structure, systems, and major components. During a home inspection, the inspector will typically check the roof, foundation, electrical, plumbing, and heating and cooling systems, as well as any major appliances that are included with the sale of the home. The inspector will also look for any signs of damage, wear and tear, or other issues that may need to be addressed. The inspector will provide a written report of their findings, which will include any major defects or issues that need to be addressed. It's common to attend the inspection so that you can ask any questions and point out specific areas of concern.
