What is an InspectorCor Home Inspection?
Your Home is a Collection of Systems
A home is made up of multiple systems that should all work together to provide you with a comfortable place to live and raise your family. But if any of these systems aren’t working properly it can affect your family’s comfort and possibly their safety. An InspectorCor Home Inspection covers all the major systems of your home so that in the end you know exactly what you’re buying. From the crawlspace to roof, we inspect everything.
A solid foundation is the primary building block for any home. We check for common foundation issues, like settlement cracking, material deterioration, improper construction techniques, moisture damage, and more.
The integrity of a home’s roof is vital to protecting the rest of the structure from water damage. A bad roof can quickly become costly and unsafe. We check for issues like missing shingles, deteriorated flashing, improper material usage, and much more.
The HVAC system not only provides comfort but also helps produce safe air for your family. A poorly functioning HVAC system can contribute to mold growth, sickness, and general discomfort. Repairs or system replacement can quickly add up.
Electricity is a wonderful thing, but if it’s installed or used improperly it can have devastating consequences. During a InspectorCor Inspection, we will inspect your outlets, electrical panel, subpanels, service entrance, and a whole lot more.
Water is one of the greatest enemies to a home so it’s important that your new home has well installed and well-maintained plumbing. A small leak can quickly turn into a major expense. We’ll take the time on an InsepctorCor inspection to evaluate and identify plumbing issues that may exist in your new home.
Windows & doors
An InspectorCor Inspection will examine the condition of the home’s doors and windows. This is important because a safe home must have appropriate means of egress. Not only that but windows and doors help keep moisture out. Damaged, improperly installed, degraded, or poor quality windows and doors can be costly to repair or replace.
Plus a whole lot more!
We inspect your home according to the North Carolina Home Inspector Standards of Practice. Check it out to see everything that goes into an InspectorCor home inspection. Or, better yet, book a home inspection and come along.
We’re always adding new tools to our inspection process so that you have the best, most accurate information about your home.
Not every potential issue is visible from the ground or even from a ladder. Plus, some roof lines are just too dangerous to walk. Some inspectors will simply write it up as a limitation, but we believe that you deserve to know as much as possible about your home, especially the roof. That's why we employ drones to get the best inspection possible.
Moisture in the wrong places can be detrimental to a health of a home. Moisture can lead to mold, fungus, decay, and structural degradation. That's why we utilize advanced moisture meters to determine the moisture content of your homes components.
Types of Properties We inspect
Homes that have been lived in can introduce issues that new homes may not have. Previous homeowners may have overestimated their DIY abilities leading to "improvements" than can become costly to repair or dangerous. An InspectorCor inspection will identify unsafe or costly issues so they can be addressed prior to purchase.
While a new home may not have the same DIY or aging issues that an existing home could have, new homes can still have issues that are unsafe or costly to repair. Builders are busy, contractors can forget items, tradesmen don't always provide their best work, but an InspectorCor inspection will help identify issues so you can close with confidence.
If you are purchasing a townhome it's important to understand who is responible for what. While the HOA will often be responsible for exterior components like the roof or siding, you will most likely be responsible for the interior of the property. Make sure you know what you're buying with an InspectorCor Inspection.
Like townhomes, the exterior of your dream condo may be covered by the HOA, but the interior may not be. Unsafe conditions like electrical hazards, organic growth, and more can still exist inside a condo. With an InspectorCor Inspection, you can move in with confidence.
If you are considering purchasing an investment property, then understanding the condition of the invest is paramount. By having an InsepctorCor Inspection conducted you can better understand hidden cost and upcoming maintenance that you may need to budget for.
During the construction of your new home, contractors and tradesmen can make mistakes. Those mistakes can become real headaches down the road and most of the major mistakes will get covered with drywall and never seen until its your responsibility.
A Foundation Certification is normally required when purchasing a manufactured home. This certification insures, based on our inspection and an engineers certification, that the home is properly secured to the ground and that the foundation is structurally sound. We work with MFD Home Certifications LLC to provide foundation certifications.
