Inspection Company

Congratulations! You've found the perfect piece of Flushing real estate. It's time to see if it's as perfect on the inside as it seems on the surface. A home inspector will investigate the property's nitty-gritty details and help you determine if it's in your best interest to proceed with the purchase.

What Does a Home Inspection Include?

According to the American Society of Home Inspectors, a typical home inspection covers these points:

  • Heating and cooling systems
  • Interior plumbing
  • Electrical systems
  • Roof integrity
  • Visible insulation
  • Walls
  • Ceilings and floors
  • Doors and windows
  • Foundation
  • Basement

Are There Any Home Features That an Inspector Doesn't Check?

Although your home inspection will give you a good idea of the property's condition, it isn't all-inclusive. Here are a few elements that your home inspection probably won't check:

  • Well pumps and septic tanks
  • Interior wall spaces
  • Chimneys and roof accessories
  • Swimming pools or other structures located on the property
  • Appliances
  • Landscaping

If you would like these parts of the property inspected, talk to your home inspector. Some companies will include these services for an additional charge.
