Residential Home Inspections

What is a home inspection?

A home inspection is an objective visual examination of the structure, systems and components of a home – from the foundation to the roof. Objects that are evaluated include the following:
  • Attic
  • Exterior and siding
  • Plumbing
  • Basement
  • Floors
  • Roof
  • Ceilings
  • Foundation
  • Sidewalk
  • Crawlspaces
  • Garage
  • Structure
  • Doors
  • Heating and air conditioning
  • Ventilation
  • Driveway
  • Interior–water penetration
  • Walls
  • Electrical system
  • Major appliances
  • Windows
While a home cannot fail an inspection, it’s components can. A home inspection provides you with an independent opinion as to the condition of the property at the time of the inspection. An inspector typically spends between three and half to four hours evaluating a home, and may recommend further evaluation if problems or symptoms are discovered. Unlike many home inspection companies K&K Consultants strongly encourages you to attend at least part of the inspection with our consultant so that you can ask questions and learn all about your home.
