Condo Condominium Inspection Services
As an experienced condo inspector, I will prepare your Inspection Report with easy-to-read details on:
- The condition of accessible and visible major building components, (excluding the exterior components which are maintained by the association or management company).
- Major and minor observed deficiencies, especially the high cost items, such as boilers, furnaces, A/C units/condensers, electrical panel and wiring, windows, doors, structural components, support posts, beams, and foundations
- Any major expenditures necessary to be expected prior to the closing
- What to watch out for, including items such as trip or fall hazards, entry/exit problems, or poorly designed walks, porches, decks.
- Helpful home preservation tips, including painting, trim repair or replacement, caulking (very important for energy cost savings) and ventilation tips
- Safety concerns, which can take into account many things, but electrical safety tops the list for easily repaired concerns or issues. Other safety issues can involve an unsafe deck, rails/balusters, or deck stairs.
- Energy efficiency recommendations and suggestions, including upgrading a poorly insulated home to a minimum of R-38 attic insulation, insulating the attic access door or drop staircase, insulating an unheated basement ceiling, and replacing worn or damaged exterior doors, windows and/or weather seals.
