A home inspection is a visual process where all of the items typically used within a home are tested and/or operated to verify proper operation or installation. Doors and windows are opened and closed, roofing materials are inspected, and air-conditioning and heating systems are operated. The inspector will fill the sinks and tub(s), run the shower(s), and flush the toilets while making notes on the condition and operation of the components tested. Upon completion, a report will be distributed to you.
