What to Expect From Your Inspection

Whether you are buying, selling or maintaining your home, Liberty Inspections, Kentucky provides professional and quality service from the moment you call us. Our licensed home inspectors will walk through your home with you and teach you as much as you want to learn. We strictly follow the Standards of Practice for home inspectors established by InterNACHI, the leading home inspection association.

After we walk through the home together, we will personally explain the general condition of the home and systems with you and your agent. We will talk through any major issues that need to be addressed sooner rather than later. We will also mention the items that you will want to keep an eye on for deferred maintenance. All of this will be detailed in our easy-to-read Spectora report, that will be delivered in HTML and/or PDF format. From that report, you’ll be able to see the items we discussed, with images for reference.

Home Inspection Cadiz, KY
Home Inspector Cadiz, KY

Home inspections typically last around 2 to 3 hours, so prepare to be there for at least 3 hours. Depending on the size and age of the home, it can be shorter or longer.

The inspector will need to look at everything both inside and outside of the home, which is why their thorough examination takes longer.

You should come ready to ask questions that you have thought about regarding the home so that you can ask while they are looking at the home.

It is recommended that you walk through the home with them while they are inspecting.

  • This is a great time to see where components of the home are!
  • Inspectors typically like to discuss certain things with the buyer, pointing out defects that they see.
  • This is also a great time for them to educate you about things within the house, such as where the electrical box is and how it should look and function, etc.
  • You can inquire about certain findings and get clarity on what they are and what that means in relation to whether the house is a good fit for you.

What is a home inspection?

A home inspection is a examination of the readily accessible, visually observable, installed systems and components of a home. All physical structures and systems of the home are examined for evidence of issues from the foundation to the roof.

What does a home inspector do?

When a home inspector arrives at your home, you can expect him or her to investigate all accessible and visible areas of your home, including the roof, basements, attics, and crawl spaces. Home inspectors undergo training and hold specific certifications to perform such inspections. Also, you can expect an inspector to provide you with a written report of findings that will aid you in the decision to buy or make repairs to a home.
