  • Foundation: Cracks, settlement, deterioration, moisture influx, and piers.
  • Exterior: Siding, trim, entry doors, garage doors, windows, and chimneys.
  • Structure: Framing of sub-floors, stairs, walls, ceilings, and roofs.
  • Roofing: Roof coverings, flashings, skylights, gutters, downspouts, eaves, and soffits.
  • Plumbing: Water pressure, piping, fixtures, faucets, drains, vents, and water heaters.
  • Electrical: Service conductors, main and sub-panels, breakers and fuses, grounding, switches, receptacles, fixtures, fans, smoke detectors, GFI function, etc.
  • Heating: Furnace or boiler, ducts, radiators, registers, wood stoves, and central air conditioning.
  • Insulation: Attic, ceiling, wall and floor insulation, and vapor barriers.
  • Ventilation: Attic, crawlspace, kitchen, bath and laundry ventilation.

The cost of the full service is $200-$400, depending on size of home, layout, and any areas such as a swimming pool requiring special attention.
