Home Inspection Reveals the Anatomy of a House
When you shop for a home, whether you are looking for a fixer-upper, new construction, or one in move-in condition, there are generally essential components that make up any structure.
An electrical system is part of the mechanical components of the structure. A home inspector is not required to report on Code violations, but he or she is required to conduct a thorough visual examination of the visible aspects of a home’s electrical system. This includes outlets, fixtures and circuit wiring.
A home inspector can only be responsible for the components that are visible. Much of your home’s plumbing system is hidden inside walls. But what is visible will offer clues to your home’s plumbing health. Galvanized pipe is often indicative of outdated material. Its corrosive qualities will cause it to fail before other materials. Copper piping is preferable, but there are many other rigid and semi-rigid synthetic materials that are long-lasting and affordable.
A structural inspection takes full inventory of those physical structures that literally hold a home together. When they fall into disrepair, whether to ravages of time, natural disasters, or faulty workmanship, they often cost big bucks to repair.
