Home Inspections

The primary focus of JLC Inspections is safety within your home. For this reason, we use only the most current technology and implement the most up-to-date procedures when performing your inspection.

Following is a list of procedures that are performed during an inspection:

The main emphasis of an inspection is visual. Most importantly, identifying defects in the structure of the home. Infrastructure, walls, floors, ceilings, roof framing, proper installation, determination and any visible foundational problems are all areas that are investigated.

Grounds areas that are examined include driveways, walkways, patios and porches, decking and stairs, external electrical, main water service and pressure, fencing and wall conditions, as well as proper grading.

Exterior examination includes a physical inspection of the condition of such items as paint, doors and windows, chimneys and main gas service.

Interior examination includes walls, ceilings, floors, windows, doors, fireplaces, electrical, plumbing, tubs, showers, sink and cabinetry.

Electrical items including the main panel, sub panels, wire types and sizes (insuring proper usage), breakers and fuses all checked.

Roof items checked are types of materials, skylights, flashings, gutters, down spouts and chimneys.

Garages are checked for door operation, auto opener and safety reverse, hardware and springs, fire walls and doors, electrical, plumbing and slab.

Main plumbing evaluation is made of both hot and cold water lines, drainage, venting, gas, all fixtures and fittings and laundry hookups.

Heating and cooling equipment, filters, ducting, registers, electrical and fuel supply and thermostats are checked. Water heaters are checked for proper operation and any potential problems.

Built-in appliances such as water heaters, disposals, stoves, dishwashers and mechanical vents are investigated.

Pool and spa structures are inspected, as well as filtration systems, electrical supplies, fencing, diving boards and slides (optional).
