The Home Inspection Checklist: What To Expect During Your Home Inspection


A home inspection checklist is a list of items and systems that a home inspector will typically review during a home inspection. Here is what to expect during your home inspection:

  1. Exterior: The inspector will examine the exterior of the home, including the roof, siding, gutters, windows, doors, and decks.

  2. Structure: The inspector will evaluate the structure of the home, including the foundation, walls, and flooring.

  3. Electrical: The inspector will examine the electrical system, including the wiring, outlets, switches, and service panel.

  4. Plumbing: The inspector will evaluate the plumbing system, including the water supply, drain lines, and fixtures.

  5. HVAC: The inspector will review the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system, including the furnace, air conditioning unit, and ductwork.

  6. Interior: The inspector will examine the interior of the home, including the walls, ceilings, floors, and doors.

  7. Kitchen: The inspector will review the kitchen, including the appliances, cabinets, and countertops.

  8. Bathrooms: The inspector will examine the bathrooms, including the fixtures, tiles, and shower or bathtub.

  9. Attic: The inspector will evaluate the attic, including the insulation, ventilation, and structural elements.

  10. Basement/Crawl Space: The inspector will examine the basement or crawl space, including the walls, floor, and foundation.

It is important to note that while most home inspections follow a similar process, the exact items on a home inspection checklist may vary depending on the inspector, the home, and local regulations. Additionally, the inspector may discover additional issues during the inspection that are not on the original checklist.
