What is a Home Inspection?

A home inspection is an objective visual examination of the physical structure and systems of a home,

from roof to foundation.  Buying a home could be the largest single investment you will ever make. To minimize unpleasant surprises and unexpected difficulties, you’ll want to learn as much as you can about the newly constructed or existing house before you buy it.  A home inspection may identify the need for major repairs or builder oversights, as well as the need for maintenance to keep it in good shape. After the inspection, you will know more about the house, which will allow you to make decisions with confidence.

  • If you already are a homeowner, a home inspection can identify problems in the making and suggest preventive measures that might help you avoid costly future repairs.
  • If you are planning to sell your home, a home inspection can give you the opportunity to make repairs that will put the house in better selling condition.

Mirowski Inspections is a proud member of ASHI, the American Society of Home Inspectors. As such, we abide by the ASHI Code of Ethics, as well as the ASHI Standards of Practice, which sets forth the minimum requirements for a home inspection.

What does a home inspection include?

The standard home inspector’s report will cover the condition of the home’s heating system; central air conditioning system (temperature permitting); interior plumbing and electrical systems; the roof, attic and visible insulation; walls, ceilings, floors, windows, and doors; the foundation, basement and structural components.

Keep in mind while a home inspection will allow you to gain valuable information about the largest purchase of your life, it is similar to a physical examination from your doctor.  When problems or symptoms of problems are found, the inspector may recommend further evaluation or remedies.
