Home Inspection

At Skyline Home Inspections, we understand that every home is unique in its shape and size, and our home inspections are tailored accordingly. Our certified inspectors conduct visual, non-invasive examinations of hundreds of essential components in your home, providing you with a comprehensive digital report that includes detailed findings and accompanying photographs.

During the inspection, our inspectors cover ten main categories:

  1. Structural Components: Inspectors examine the foundation, walls, ceilings, and floors for any signs of structural issues, such as cracks, settling, or sagging.

  2. Roofing System: The roof is inspected to assess its condition, including the roofing materials, flashings, gutters, and downspouts. Inspectors check for leaks, missing or damaged shingles, and signs of wear and tear.

  3. Exterior Elements: This includes the exterior walls, siding, windows, doors, and trim. Inspectors assess the condition of these components, looking for cracks, decay, water damage, or any other potential issues.

  4. Electrical Systems: Inspectors evaluate the electrical system, including the main service panel, wiring, outlets, and switches. They check for code compliance, safety hazards, and proper functioning.

  5. Plumbing System: The plumbing system is examined, including the pipes, fixtures, water supply, drains, and water heaters. Inspectors look for leaks, water pressure issues, improper installations, and signs of plumbing problems.

  6. HVAC Systems: Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems are inspected to ensure they are functioning properly. Inspectors assess the condition of equipment, check filters, and evaluate air flow and temperature control.

  7. Interior Spaces: Inspectors examine the interior spaces, including walls, ceilings, floors, stairways, and railings. They look for signs of water damage, mold, cracks, or other issues that may affect the livability and safety of the property.

  8. Insulation and Ventilation: The insulation and ventilation systems are evaluated to ensure energy efficiency and proper air circulation. Inspectors check for adequate insulation levels, ventilation in attics and crawl spaces, and proper functioning of exhaust fans.

  9. Built-in Appliances: Inspectors assess the condition and functionality of built-in appliances, such as stoves, ovens, dishwashers, and garbage disposals. They check for leaks, proper operation, and potential safety concerns.

  10. Safety Systems: Inspectors inspect safety systems in the home, including smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors. They ensure these systems are present, functioning correctly, and comply with safety standards.

In addition to these categories, we also offer add-on services such as radon testing, sewer scope, mold testing, asbestos testing and water quality testing, depending on your property. These will give you a full picture of the condition of your home.
