A home inspection is a non-technically exhaustive, limited visual survey and basic performance evaluation of the systems and components of a building using normal controls and does not require the use of specialized equipment or procedures. The purpose of the inspection is to provide the client with information regarding the general condition of the residence at the time of inspection. Areas observed are:

• Foundation
• Interior and exterior walls
• Attic structure
• Insulation
• Ventilation
• Windows
• Doors
• Roof covering
• Chimneys
• Fireplaces
• Grading
• Electrical
• Visible plumbing
• Drains
• Appliances
• Sprinkler systems

So basically from the foundation to the shingles and everything in between.
