Are the plumbing systems looked at during a home inspection.
Yes a home inspector will look at the plumbing systems at the home.The home inspector will locate the water meter, main shut off valve, gas meter and most likely note their locations in the report. Home inspectors will also identify the type of plumbing supplies and water drains. The home inspector will look for signs of present or past leaks by running water at all water supply locations like at bathrooms, kitchens, laundry areas and outdoor hose bibs. If any leaks or moisture issues are found it will be documented in the inspection report.
Will the foundation be evaluated?
Yes the foundation will be evaluated visually and also by opening and closing doors and windows. The inspector is looking for cracks in the foundation, gaps around windows or doors, Leaning walls, Bowed walls, cracks in drywall at walls, and ceilings, Cracks in tiles at floors and walls,Sloping floors, Separation at rafters and ridge boards. These are can be signs of foundation movement. I also take foundation measurements to aid in better evaluating the foundation.
