PRE-LISTING  INSPECTION

Identify problems early by having an inspection preformed before listing your home for sale. Advantageously, this allows you the opportunity to make any necessary repairs on your own terms. Having this information early in the process can help avoid any future negotiations that may break a deal.

WHAT TO EXPECT DURING YOUR HOME INSPECTION

Every inspection is an unbiased and professional evaluation of the condition of your home. An Open Door Inspections home inspector will always perform a visual non-invasive inspection, complete with a detailed digital report of all their findings. 

STANDARD HOME INSPECTION

  • EXTERIOR. The inspection will begin with an assessment of the home's lot and grounds. This includes aspects such as the driveway, sidewalks, grading, roof, windows, siding, decks and patios.

  • INTERIOR. Following the exterior inspection, the inspector will move inside  to evaluate any possible deficiencies with the home's ceilings, walls, doors, appliances, and so forth. In addition, signs of water intrusion or other potential issues will be inspected and noted.

  • STRUCTURAL COMPONENTS. Structural components include the foundation, floor/slab, framing, and attic. The visible areas of these structures are inspected for safety, integrity, and quality of workmanship.

  • MAJOR SYSTEMS. All accessible areas of the home's major systems will be inspected. Major systems include the furnace, air conditioning unit, water heater, plumbing fixtures, and electrical system. 

  • WINDSTORM MITIGATION. Inspections also include comprehensive evaluations of the home's ability to withstand against heavy wind conditions.

4-POINT HOME INSPECTION

  • ROOFING. During a 4-point home inspection, our inspectors will examine the roof for issues such as leaks or water damage, damaged tiles or shingles, missing tiles or shingles, etc.

  • ELECTRICAL. Electrical wiring and panels are carefully examined during the inspection. This includes inspecting aluminum wiring, cloth wiring, double tapped breakers, fuse boxes, subpanels, and two-prong outlets. 

  • PLUMBING. The age and the type of both the water system and water heater will be evaluated for its integrity and functionality. Common plumbing issues discovered during 4-point inspections include old and outdated water heaters, improper traps, and water leaks. 

  • HVAC. The final portion of the inspection includes examination of the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system. Any discovered leaks or damages will be reported.
