Inspection Process

If walls could talk you would not need us.

We value an efficient and thorough inspection process. Morrison Home Inspection ensures that you will learn the ins, outs, and history of your home—top to bottom.

Exterior

During the tour of the exterior, the inspector will evaluate the condition of the roofing system, including the roof material, flashing, roof penetrations, and roof drainage systems. The inspector will also evaluate the siding and trim. Exterior doors and lighting will be operated to ensure proper function. The inspector will inspect the grade at the foundation, walkways, steps, patio and driveways.

Structure

The inspector will visually inspect the accessible structural components of the dwelling. We will probe and sound sills, joists, and girders for structural integrity. The inspector will note any signs of water penetration and wood rot. If there is a crawl space present, we will enter the space and probe visual components and assess the support columns, ventilation and water penetration.

Garage

The inspector will visually inspect the siding, roof, doors and windows, foundation, and garage slab. We will operate the garage door and evaluate the safety and mechanical equipment.

HVAC

The inspector will locate the main panel box and any sub-panel boxes in the dwelling. We will identify the type and size of the wiring in the panel box. We will test a random sample of electrical receptacles within the structure for proper wiring.

Plumbing

The inspector will visually inspect and identify the accessible feed and waste lines within the dwelling. We will locate the main water shut off and run all the plumbing fixtures to determine proper functional flow and volume. The inspector will locate the water heater and describe it's condition.

Interior

The inspector will enter all interior rooms including the kitchen and bath(s), to determine their overall condition. Particular attention will be given to water stains, cracks, and movement to the walls, ceilings and floors. All bath and kitchen fixtures will be run to determine functional flow and leaks.

Attic

When attic space is available, the inspector will enter the space and evaluate the structural members, type of insulation, ventilation, and any evidence of previous water penetration.

Radon

Radon is a radioactive gas that escapes through cracks and crevices in the ground. To test for Radon, an air sample is taken over a 48 hour period and then analyzed by a technician. This service can be provided during the Home Inspection.
