EXCELLENCE HOME INSPECTIONS
Preparing the Property for Inspection:
The property being inspected should be clean and free of any obstruction.
If the residence is vacant make sure the power is on and all pilot lights are lit. (We are not allowed to light pilot lights). Easy access to attics and all crawl spaces is required for a complete inspection.
When we arrive at your home in Suffolk County for the home inspection we will start on the exterior of the property. Our home inspection checklist includes the examination of the general grading of the land, drainage, walkway, and driveways, the foundation, decks and porches, entry doors and windows, soffits and fascia boards, roof and chimney, vent pipes, skylights, downspouts, gutters, a/c condenser units, plumbing fixtures, outdoor electrical outlets, and sidings.
Once we complete the exterior we move to the interior space where we will inspect the walls, floors and ceilings, doors, windows, fans, appliances, plumbing, electrical, bathrooms, fire places, ventilation, heat and a/c systems. We report on but not inspect alarm and smoke detectors
First floor complete we move to the second and/or third floors(if applicable) and inspect the same as above.
Next we move to the attic space where we will inspect the interior roof and structure, insulation and ventilation, electrical and plumbing, air handler and ducts (if applicable) and look for any visible water leaks if accessible.
Finally we will inspect the basement, its foundation, floor, plumbing, electrical, heat and hot water systems, water main, main power source, windows, and supports to the main floor.
At the conclusion of the inspection we will review our findings, and answer any questions you may have. Final Inspection Report will be computer generated easy to read report with pictures for you to keep. Our Long Island Home Inspectors want to make sure that the client understands as much as possible.
