Before finalizing a home purchase, as a buyer, you should always request a home inspection. This inspection is a chance for you to get a better picture of the house’s condition.
And for the seller, it is an opportunity to identify and rectify any undesirable defects in the home.
The home inspection usually covers the general components of a home that is:
- The structural components
- Major home systems (plumbing, electrical, and HVAC)
- The roof
- Exterior components etc.
This general inspection usually doesn’t involve a detailed evaluation of everything.
An additional inspection will scrutinize a particular facet of the home, giving a more comprehensive and detailed assessment than as it is with a general review.
The additional inspections can include:
- Individual home systems inspections – which include; HVAC inspections, electrical inspections, and plumbing inspections
- Separate interior and exterior inspections
- Foundation inspection
- Roof inspection
- Radon gas inspection
- Mold inspection
- And much more
During the general inspection, the inspector may suggest these additional inspections based on their findings. If it’s within their area of specialization, they may offer suggestions.
An inspector may also recommend a more knowledgeable technician to evaluate identified issues, such as faulty electrical wiring, which may need an electrician’s expertise.
Costs of additional home inspections
In case you want more than just a basic home inspection, you may need to pay extra since each will be charged separately.
For example, a foundation inspection may cost you around $ 500 without including a general inspection.
