Wondering what’s included in a standard home inspection from CALCO Home Inspections? Here is a quick overview of the services included in your home inspection, and the major systems that we analyze and assess throughout the process.

  • Roof

    The roof is one of the most costly and important structures. We 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

    We will visually inspect the HVAC systems including ducts, filters, furnaces and air conditioning units.

  • Plumbing

    We will visually inspect plumbing fixtures for proper function, including tubs, sinks, hoses, showers, and water shut-off valves, and look for leaks and other such flaws.

  • Electrical Systems

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

  • Appliances

    We will test and examine all major appliances like hot water heaters, washers and dryers, dishwashers, refrigerators, freezers, and more.

  • Doors, Windows & Interior

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

  • Foundations, Basements and Crawl Spaces

    We 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

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

CALCO Home Inspections has a thorough, multi-point checklist for the inspection process. We will explain the overall, general condition of the home and its systems to you and your agent after the inspection is complete, taking care to point out any defects found.

In addition, we will compile a comprehensive Spectora report, delivered online via HTML, or in PDF format, documenting all of our findings. Our reports include images, references and intimate details.

This report will be available for you both in a desktop-friendly format and a mobile format, so that you can stay in-the-loop and check your report even when you’re on the go.
