At Absolute Home Inspection, we inspect all the components of your home that you would expect: the HVAC system, appliances, electrical, plumbing, roof and the foundation. We pride ourselves in providing a very thorough inspection of the house and property – even inspecting some areas that may surprise you. For example, did you know that we inspect the grounds around your home and even the driveway? Here are some of the details we evaluate when we inspect your home:
Service or Entrance Walls and Walkways
We will note the construction materials used, such as if they are brick, concrete, flagstone, etc, and if the public or private sidewalks present a trip hazard. In Lexington, public sidewalk maintenance is the homeowner’s responsibility. We will report any cracks or walkway problems and note those that are in need of repair.
Our inspection includes a survey of any fences or walls on the property. We will note whether they are composed of brick, block, wood, metal, or vinyl. If the condition of a metal fence is rusted we will note that as well as any loose blocks or caps in masonry walls, and any missing or damaged planks in wood fencing.
We will evaluate the role landscaping plays regarding your foundation. We will report any negative grades causing water to flow towards your home rather than away from it. We will also recommend basement window wells or covers, if needed, and if trees or shrubs need to be cut back to enable better drainage. We will even note if there is an improperly stacked woodpile too close to the home that could attract termites.
