After the examination, which usually takes several hours, even up to a number of days, depending on the size of the house, the home inspector then issues a report released to the client and regulating bodies, sometimes a local housing authority, for consumer protection and welfare.
In most cases, the inspection procedure involves the inspection of the home’s interior structure, water heating system, roof,basement, heating or cooling system, plumbing, exterior structure, electrical system and other aspects of the house.
This is where a home inspector can determine whether the building has faulty installation processes or fixtures that were undertaken, most especially improper or substandard building practices.
This is also true with homes that require extensive repairs or remodeling, including general maintenance issues, including but not limited to fire and safety concerns.
Home owners or buyers usually hire a home inspection service prior to selling or buying their homes. A home inspector is then sent over to the property being considered and conducts a thorough examination of a home to inspect and examine for potential systems or components requiring attention, most especially when it deals with structural integrity or standard installation or fixture set-up.
After the examination process, the home owner receives a detailed report of the condition of the house the owner can then plan for needed repairs and upgrades.
There is no pass or fail rating during a home inspection process and it is also not a municipal or regulatory home inspection, that determines whether the local building code of a certain state or territory is complied with.
So by now you know the value of a good home inspector and how his professional services is not only focused on regulatory compliance, but is also a process to protect the buyer or seller from substandard or faulty construction practices.
