Mobile Alabama Home Inspection Services
N-Spec provides Mobile Alabama home inspection services. Whether you own a home or are buying or selling a home you should have your home inspected. Your home is large investment and you are encouraged to have it inspected to uncover potential expensive issues hidden from an untrained person. A quality home inspector will inspect your house from the ground to the roof. In addition, a good home inspection will also include inspection of the following items:
Home Inspection What To Inspect?
N-Spec Inspections encourages you to take a few steps in preparation of your home inspection. 1) Please have your electricity on. Some homes (that are being sold) may have the electricity disconnected. This makes it very difficult to fully inspect the quality of the home’s electrical system. 2) Remove any barriers blocking entry into the attic or crawl space. We will be climbing into the home’s attic to inspect the rafters, ventilation, air ducts, and quality of electrical wiring. We will be looking beneath your home, as well. Please have your pets restrained and remove any items prevents access to your crawl space (old equipment, bicycles, storage items, etc… 3). We will be climbing on your roof. It helps if you have swept your roof prior to an inspection. This allows to review the quality of the shingles or roofing material. This also allows us to identify potential leak spots or improper roofing installation.
How long does a Home Inspection Take?
Generally it takes 2-4 hours to fully inspect a home (pending the condition of the home). Larger homes take up to 6 hours to inspect. N-Spec Inspections provides a thorough home inspection to our Mobile Alabama homes. Mobile’s climate offers a number of unique challenges to homes in the area. The high heat and excessive humidity can wreak havoc on the structures and roofs of Mobile Alabama’s homes. We will go the extra mile to fully assess the home to identify potential structural issues that include inspecting the siding of the home, checking seams around windows and gutters, we will assess the underlying structure of the wood in the attic (rafters, underside of the roof), evaluate the age and quality of the electrical systems (is the wiring old, frayed, using outdated breaker boxes, are GFCI outlets installed in the bathrooms, kitchen and laundry, we will determine if all of the ventilation systems are connected and functioning properly (bathroom vents, stove vents, gas heater vent). We really get down and dirty when inspecting a home. We don’t cut corners. Once we are finished we will have completed a thorough analysis of your home. We view a home inspection as if it were a final evaluation for a home (the home’s test to advance to the next level in school, if you will) and we want to ensure that the home owner finds great value in our home inspection report.
What Will A Home Inspection Identify
A home inspector documents areas that are issues in the quality of the home, whether it is a structural issue or one of the many systems in the home (electrical, plumbing, HVAC, etc..). The home inspector will identify the specific issue and include it in his report. Many times the homeowner or seller of home may not want to see this because it may cost quite a bit of money to correct the issue. A good inspector doesn’t sugar coat the inspection. At N-Spec Inspections we will provide you a thorough home inspection report that identifies all issues found. It is uncommon for a home to not have any issues, this includes new homes or homes that over a 100 years old. We will identify all issues, but we will not be responsible for fixing the issue. It is up to the current home owner or potential new home owner to correct the issues. The owner of N-Spec Home Inspections in Mobile Alabama has purchased a number of homes and remodeled them so he knows what happens if certain issues are not fixed soon. He may express that to you, but will not enforce, the correction of the issue—the issue will be documented in the Home Inspection Report. The home owner may ask the home inspector what needs to be done specifically to the home and include it in the inspection report. He can’t go into step by step, but can generally give you an idea of what may need to be corrected. This way you will know what to tell a contractor to address when getting an issue corrected.
When Should You Have a Home Inspected
If you live in Mobile Alabama, an annual home inspection is recommended. The weather and the heat can take a toll on homes in Mobile and you may have leaks or issues that you are not even aware of until it’s too late and now you are facing an expensive repair. An annual inspection will keep your home in tip-top shape much like the importance of a medical physical for your body. If you are planning on selling your home in the new feature we encourage you to go ahead and schedule a home inspection well ahead of placing the home on the market. This gives the homeowner time to correct any major or minor issues to avoid losing money during the sale of your home. This will also speed up the process of selling your home by not having to wait on a home inspection to be completed before it can be placed on the market. If you are potential home buyers, it is STRONGLY recommended that you get an inspection of the home before making a purchase. This allows you to avoid buying a home with major structural or system issues and costing you tons of money. We have all heard nightmare stories of people buying a home with a cracked foundation, improperly installed roof or a home suffering from major insect damage (termite damaged wood). At N-Spec Home Inspections all of our Mobile Alabama home inspection services are thorough, we do the same type of inspection for an annual inspection as we do for a home buyer’s inspection. We will spend the same amount of time on ALL inspections.
