15 STEPS TO THE HOME INSPECTION PROCESS

Step 1:
Setting up the Inspection-Call 509-929-4337 and talk with the inspector about any questions or concerns you might have and schedule the appointment.
 
Step 2: Meet the Inspector-Typically it is normal for the inspector to arrive a few minutes early to meet the customer and talk about the property.

Step 3: Pre-Inspection Agreement- Before the inspection we will go over the pre-inspection agreement. Which consist of the cost agreed upon for the inspection, inspection limitations and the Washington State standards of Practice.


Step 4: Exterior- The inspector will start the inspection on the exterior of the house. Looking at grade,siding,trim,windows,doors,decks,patios,walkways, electrical service entry and etc.


Step 5: Roof Coverings- The next step is to examine the roof structure and components. While inspecting the roof we will be looking at the roof material, the pitch of the roof, plumbing vents,chimneys and stove pipes and etc.


Step 6: Garage/Shop
-When inspecting the garage we will be checking for automatic openers, garage door safety reverses, garage door track systems, electrical and garage service entry's.


Step 7: Interior:-The inspector will then move on to the interior of the home thoroughly inspecting the kitchen,laundry,bedrooms,living rooms and bathrooms. While inspecting these sections of the home the inspector will be testing the plumbing systems,electrical systems, fireplaces, appliances and etc.


Step 8:-Heating and Air- The inspector will be going through the heating systems checking for things like gas leaks,flame distortion,thermostat controls, and combustion air venting(if furnace is gas).  The inspector will also inspect the air conditioning unit looking at the condition of the fins, proper insulation,leaks, and the electrical disconnect of the ac unit. We also do inspect heat pumps, baseboard heating,wood stoves,in wall heating and boiler systems as well.


Step 9: Electrical Panel-The home inspector will carefully go over the electrical panel checking for things like amperage,wire gauge, breakers or fuses, double tapping, burn marks and etc.


Step 10: Water Heater
- While inspecting the water heating system we will be checking the combustion air venting (if gas), capacity, brand, temperature pressure and relief valve and extension, supply lines, and etc.


Step 11: Crawl Space and Attic- Inspecting the attic we will be looking at truss systems,rafters, insulation, electrical,plumbing and hvac supply. When inspecting the crawl space a lot like the attic we will be looking at electrical, plumbing along with foundation walls, vapor barriers, floor joists and etc.

Step 12: Going Over Report- When the inspector is done with his visual inspection he will sit down with his clients and go through his findings of the home. At this time he will also answer any questions his client might have. After the inspector and the clients are done going over the findings, the inspector will then collect the payment for the inspection.

Step 13: Writing the Report- The inspector will then go back to the office and write a fully detailed report complete with pictures and a summary and send it to the client. If a hard copy of the report is needed the inspector will send it through the mail.
