We check just about everything that can’t be hauled off in a truck.
What that means is I look at and operate everything that can be accessed.
Here, this list should help explain:
At the interior I check:
- every outlet,
- every switch,
- every light,
- every fan,
- every built in electric heater
- the floors, walls and ceilings,
- every door and it’s locks
- every window and it’s latches,
- the smoke and CO detectors
- the fireplaces and wood stoves,
- the sinks, faucets, tubs and showers, toilets and the associated water supply and waste pipes,
- every major appliance including the accuracy of the oven and,
- the temperatures of the refrigerator.
For the mechanical I check:
- the water heaters,
- the heating and cooling systems,
- the swamp coolers,
- the main electrical panel,
- the sub electrical panels,
- the exterior outlets, lighting, power drops and exterior wiring and,
- the water and gas supply valves and piping.
At the exterior I check:
- the roof, gutters and eaves,
- the chimney and flue pipes,
- the exterior walls and siding,
- the porches, patios, walks and decks,
- the retaining walls and fencing,
- the grade and,
- the attic and the crawl space.
