What is a Home Inspection?

In the process of Inspecting your Kaukauna home, Chuck will provide a non-invasive, non-intrusive visual Inspection, and will draw a conclusion as to whether any structural, mechanical or safety items/issues exist. Plan on being present during the Inspection, as Chuck will explain as he Inspects the outside and every room of the home. Keep in mind that this is a snapshot of the overall condition of your Kaukauna home at the time of the Inspection. Here are a few of the items to be Inspected:

The Home Inspection Process

Starting on the outside:
• Is the Landscaping pitched properly away from the base of the Home?
• Any uneven driveway or sidewalk areas that could be potential tripping issues? (Think about Grandma’s first visit or a little toddler.)
• Siding, windows, roofing – working or functioning properly? Life expectancy?
• Gutters and downspouts - open and functioning properly?
• Hose bibs “water spigot” - proper anti-cross-contamination device present?

Inside:
• Electrical – Function of outlets and switches Panels and sub-panel wiring
• Mechanicals for serviceability and average life expectancy including the water heater, sump pump, furnace, air conditioner (weather permitting), and the serviceability of windows and doors

Structural components: from the foundation to the roof ridge.

Safety:
• Smoke Detectors and CO2 Detectors
• GFCI outlet circuits at water locations
• and many more

A very detailed Home Inspection Report, with pictures will be emailed to you within just a few hours after the Home Inspection of your Kaukauna home. Chuck is always available for any follow-up questions you may have.
