The roof is one of the most complex, costly, yet essential systems on the home. Your home inspector will examine the roof, its structure, covering (shingles, tiles, etc.), flashing, gutters, downspouts, and more.
Wondering what’s included with a typical home inspection from Realm Inspections?
Some final notes from your home inspector…
Pass or Fail?
“Did my home pass?” That is a question often asked of a home inspector. Unfortunately, it doesn’t really work that way. The truth is homes age, materials deteriorate, and maintenance is often deferred; it’s a fact of homeownership. In short, some homes are meticulously maintained, while others, not so much. In fact, even the ones that are well maintained could be hiding a few secrets.
What about Code?
We inspect each property according to the North Carolina Standards of Practice. It’s important to understand that we are not Code enforcers, although code and our standards do overlap in some areas. A home does not simply pass-or-fail. It is an evaluation of the property’s condition at the time of the inspection.
The bottom line…
Ultimately, we call out deficiencies when we see them, providing a clear understanding of the issues and providing guidance on who to engage and what actions to take. No home, not even a new home, is perfect. We can help you understand what’s important, but only you can decide if the home is right for you.
