Top to Bottom

Starting with the roof of the exterior of the home being inspected, we go from the top down to the foundation at grade level. Inside the home, we start with the accessible attic and work our way down to the lowest point of the home, basement and crawlspace, checking all things possible along the way. 

Exterior Inspection

Roofing items including shingles, flashings, chimneys, vents, gutters, downspouts, drip edges, skylights and any other visible associated elements. Soffits, fascia, siding, window trim, venting, door trim and openings, and any other visible relevant items.
