What is Involved in a Visual Inspection?
A visual inspection is what it sounds like. You, or your inspector, should take a close look around for any sign of damage or potential for water intrusion. See the list below for some common things to look for.
- Visible mold growth
- Visible water staining
- Water in the crawl space
- Improper grading around house/office
- Irrigation systems too close to building
- Improper attic insulation or ventilation
- High humidity levels
- Leaks under sinks or in other areas
Keep in mind that this is only a partial list. A good visual inspection should give you a good idea of what is going on in your home or office with regards to water & drainage, air flow in the building, and the general state of any appliance or equipment that is likely to be an issue.
