How We Inspect

Whether you are buying, selling or maintaining your home or commercial building, Summit Home Inspector provides professional and quality service from the moment you call. We will walk through your home with you and teach you as much as you want to learn to make an informed decision.

After we walk through the home together, we review the general condition of the home and systems with you and your agent. We will talk through any major issues that need to be addressed sooner rather than later. I will also mention the items that you will want to keep an eye on for deferred maintenance. All of this will be detailed in our easy-to-read report, that will be delivered in HTML and/or PDF format. From that report, you’ll be able to see the items we discussed, with images for reference.

Summit Home Inspector thoroughly inspects and reports on the following:

  • Roof

    The roof is one of the most costly and important structures. I will examine the roof, its structure, shingles/tiles, flashing, gutters, downspouts and more.

  • Exterior

    This includes the exterior walkways and doors, siding, eaves and soffits, fascia, paint, and other such elements of the home’s exterior.

  • HVAC

    I will test and examine the HVAC systems including ducts, filters, furnaces and air conditioning units.

  • Plumbing

    I will check all plumbing fixtures for proper function, including tubs, sinks, hoses, showers, water shut-off valves, and irrigation systems, if applicable, and look for leaks and other such flaws.

  • Electrical Systems

    I will check both interior and exterior electrical systems including service drops, service masts, grounding, outlets, meters, circuit breakers, and other such systems.

  • Appliances

    I will test and examine all major appliances like water heaters,  dishwashers, built-in appliances and more.

  • Doors, Windows & Interior

    I will check doors and windows for proper sealing and drafts, signs of water damage, and more. I will also check the condition of all interior spaces.

  • Foundations, Basements and Crawl Spaces

    I will examine the foundation, crawlspaces and basements to look for signs of things like past water damage, foundation cracking or shifting, and other such potentially expensive issues.

  • Attic, Ventilation & Insulation

    I will examine the attic to ensure it is ventilated, check for moisture, assess the level of insulation, and more.
