Getting a home inspection is an important part of buying a home. Even brand new homes aren’t perfect, and an inspection gives you an idea of potential problems you might face. Here’s what to expect during your Calgary home inspection.
Interior Home Inspection Services
During an inspection, a Calgary home inspector checks the interior of the home for structural integrity. The walls, ceiling, and foundation are observed for cracks and holes. The inspector also checks the wiring system, plumbing equipment, roof and attic, locks, and the alignment of doors and windows. A checklist is used to make sure that all the major systems of the house are in good order.
Exterior Home Inspections
Home inspection services also include the exterior of the home. The inspector checks the foundation and roof of the home, and looks for any flaws in the exterior structure. Porches and decks are also examined for problems, like rotted wood, weak masonry, or separations.
Length of a Calgary Home Inspection
The amount of time required varies depending on the size and condition of the home, but most home inspection services take about 2 to 3 hours on site. After the inspection, additional time is necessary to complete the final report back at the inspection company office.
Following the Calgary Home Inspector
Schedule your Calgary home inspection for a time when you are available, and walk through the house with the inspector. This gives you the chance to talk with the home inspector about any flaws or problems they find, as well as ask them any questions you have. They can explain checklist items to help you make an informed decision about the home.
Buying a home is an exciting time. Make sure you know the condition of the home by having a professional home inspection before you agree to buy.
