How Does A Home Inspection Work On Maui?
In a full-blown home inspection, we look at ten different sections of the house, which we will discuss below.
We will look at the roof during a home inspection to ensure that the structure, shingles/tiles, flashing, gutters, downspouts, and many other components are intact. Seeing that the house’s roof is one of the most costly components of the house, it is a critical part of the inspection.
If the house has an attic, we will exam the attic to make sure that it is adequately ventilated, and we will assess the level of insulation.
Inspection of the house’s exterior includes the walkways, doors, siding, paint, and any other outside component of the house.
The foundations, basements, and crawl spaces are carefully inspected for signs of water damage, foundation cracking or shifting, basically any red flag problem. These types of issues can be pretty expensive to fix if the problem is not resolved early on.
During an inspection, we look at the cooling system in the house. Especially at where the cooling system is located, the source of energy used, and the cooling method.
Similar to the inspection of the cooling system, we will look at the heating system of the house. Again we will inspect the location of the thermostat, energy source, and method of heating.
If the house has a fireplace, we will look at the fireplace and chimney, the lintels, damper doors, and cleanout doors and frames.
With a visual inspection, we will investigate the plumbing fixtures and ensure their proper functioning. Some of these plumbing fixtures include tubs, sinks, hoses, showers, and water shut-off valves. It is essential to detect a water leak or flaw in the plumbing system early on.
When it comes to the electrical components of the house, you have to be extra careful. During the inspection, we will make sure that all interior and exterior electrical systems function correctly.
Last on the list is the doors, windows, and interior of the house. All the doors and windows will be checked to ensure that they are correctly sealing, there are no drafts or signs of water damage.
