What to Expect From Your Inspection

Whether you are buying, selling or maintaining your home in Northern Virginia, Schultz Inspections provides professional and quality service from the moment you call me.  As a licensed and certified home inspector, I will walk through your home with you and teach you as much as you want to learn. I set the bar by exceeding the Standards of Practice for home inspectors by established by ASHI, InterNACHI and the state of Virginia.

After we walk through the home together, I 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. I will also mention the items that you will want to keep an eye on for deferred maintenance. All of this will be detailed in my 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.

Wondering what’s included in a standard home inspection from Schultz Inspections?

Here is a quick overview of the services included in your home inspection, and the major systems that I analyze and assess throughout the process.

Your Standard Home Inspection - InterNACHI Graphic
  • Roof

    The roof is one of the most costly and important structures. We will examine the roof, its structure, shingles/tiles, flashing, gutters, downspouts and more.

  • Exterior

    This includes the exterior walkways and doors, siding, eaves and soffits, fascia, paint, and other such elements of the home’s exterior.

  • HVAC

    I will visually inspect the HVAC systems including ducts, filters, furnaces and air conditioning units.

  • Plumbing

    I will visually inspect plumbing fixtures for proper function, including tubs, sinks, hoses, showers, and water shut-off valves, and look for leaks and other such flaws.

  • Electrical Systems

    I will visually inspect both interior and exterior electrical systems including service drops, service masts, grounding, outlets, meters, circuit breakers, and other such systems.

  • Appliances

    I will test and examine all major appliances like hot water heaters, washers and dryers, dishwashers, refrigerators, freezers, and more.

  • Doors, Windows & Interior

    I will check doors and windows for proper sealing and drafts, signs of mold or water damage, and more. I will also check the condition of all interior spaces.

  • Foundations, Basements and Crawl Spaces

    I will examine the foundation, crawlspaces and basements to look for signs of things like past water damage, foundation cracking or shifting, and other such potentially expensive issues.

  • Attic, Ventilation & Insulation

    I will examine the attic to ensure it is properly ventilated, check for mold and moisture, assess the level of insulation, and more.
