Here is a list of some common areas missed during home inspections. This list is intended to inform homeowners about the need to have these areas checked for possible problems and the need for upgrades or repairs, if any.

• Smoke detectors sometimes are missed out during the inspection process.

• Electrical fixtures and wirings, which are often embedded in between double walls or embedded in concrete.

• Backflow prevention devices should also be carefully considered, since this helps prevent any untoward flooding in the event of plumbing and waterline leakage.

• Basement bathrooms and laundry tubs are sometimes also missed in the process because not all homes have these areas and fixtures in their basements.

• Dryer vents, on the other hand, should also be considered

• Electrical grounding, since improper grounding could cause major problems from accidental electric shocks or even cause house fires.

• Flexible gas connectors, valves and uncapped gas lines, should also be of paramount concern since the slight indications of gas leakages can be tragic and disastrous.

A Home Inspector can be a Good Investment Protector

home inspector A good home inspection process is something that most people should know about and many may not like the idea, but truth be told that a good home inspector can be one important person who can help protect an investment.

Generally a home inspection process is the visual examination of a house’s physical structure, utility systems, which starts from the roof down to the foundation and structural integrity, which all boils down to determining the current condition of a house.

The standard home inspection procedure ascertains the condition of the house’s internal and external set-up, ranging from the house’s interior plumbing, electrical and heating system; central air conditioning system; roof and attic; visible insulation, as well as the walls, ceilings, floors, windows and doors; the foundation structure that includes the basement and structural components.

Buying a house, whether it be new or pre-owned, can indeed be the biggest and largest single investment someone can ever make, thus the need to ensure that your investment is actually worth its true value, plus to avoid the hassles of substandard materials or hidden flaws in a house’s structure.

Even if selling a house is far from your thoughts, a home inspection can also be a great help in determining problems that could arise with your existing home and for the home inspector as well to suggest preventive measures that can prevent costly repairs that may likely occur.

Another important area the inspector will want to make sure to go through would be the house’s electrical system and the inspector may need to remove the cover on the electric service panel to examine the electrical system, so be sure that the panel is accessible and that the cover easily removed.

The bottom line for this home inspection process is primarily to focus on not just consumer protection, but for the investment of the client as well, since investing in a home is no joke considering the fact that this may yet be one’s biggest investment ever.

So try to think of it this way, home inspectors are not there to terrorize, but a home inspector can be a good investment protector.
