What do you inspect?

We start at the top and inspect the roof working our way down the the exterior. 

Then we head inside to the electrical panel, water heater, heating, and cooling.  While in the basement we look for evidence of moisture.

After that we travel through the home and check the outlets, bathroom fixtures and kitchens. Keeping an eye out for leakages and moisture. 

The last stop is the attic where we look for insulation and ventilation.
