When a home inspection is done prior to a purchase being completed, an inspector compiles a report and it is given to both the sellers and the buyers, who then make decisions about moving forward based on those findings.  Buyers can often find these reports alarming, but there are many common issues that arise during a basic home inspection.  Some of them are:

  • Roof and gutter issues (leaks, damaged/clogged gutters, etc.)
  • Faulty wiring/electrical problems
  • Poor grading or drainage around the home
  • Dampness or mold/mildew in basements
  • Cosmetic wear and tear (peeling wallpaper, dirty/damaged carpets, cracked driveways/walkways, etc)
  • Plumbing issues such as leaks, clogged drains, poor flow
  • Inadequate ventilation or insulation
  • HVAC problems
