Types of Home Inspections
Ok, so you know that you want an Expest professional to come examine your home. However, do you know what they are supposed to be looking at? Home inspections cover a variety of services. The first process includes an Expest inspector auditing all visible areas and reviewing all accessible items and areas, including the heating system, central air conditioning system, interior plumbing, electrical systems, the roof, attic space and all visible insulation, the walls, ceilings, floors, doors, windows, basement or crawlspace area, and the foundation and all visible structural components. These are essential to conduct before the buying or selling a home. A report will be given to identify what areas could be improved upon at the residence such as repairs that need to be corrected in order to meet current standards. If not taken care of properly, these could hurt the sale or be used as a bargaining chip for/against you.
The other type of home inspection is one that checks for flaws in the structure caused by wood destroying pests such as termites, which Expest is known best for. Pest inspectors look for evidence of pest activity, such as damaged wood, dead insects and termite tubes. These can be caused by wood-destroying pests, such as termites, carpenter ants, rot fungus and wood-infesting beetles. An Expest inspector would meticulously check your home for any signs that these insects are present and take any precautions to exterminate or prevent them. No one wants to buy/sell a home in which these are present, as the future could bear unexpected costs.
