What home inspecto's do?          

Home inspectors find defects visually and testing systems of a home. I start by walking the home and looking or testing each of the homes systems. Experience have a good eye for finding defects. You must know what to look for and know general information and building codes for particular parts of a home. Home inspectors are investigators.

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.

The importance of proper drainage

grading and drainage?

During every home inspection the grading and drainage of the home is inspected for proper slope away form the homes foundation. The grade of the home should slope  6" within the first 10' or swale should drain water away from foundation to the street. Improper drainage around the home can cause the foundation to fail. The inspector will note any areas where water may pond or drain towards the foundation.

Gutters can be a great help in directing water away from  your foundation.

I inspect the gutters for defects and how the deal with the roof water.

Gutters are great at directing water away from your home, but poorly installed or poorly maintain gutters can also be harmful to your home. Improper sloped gutters or gutters full of debris will cause gutters to overflow and cause soil errosion next to your homes foundation creating areas where water can pond. Well maintain gutters are always recommded.
