What is included in our Full Home Inspection

 You just went under contract on your future home purchase and now it is time for the home inspection. So next question is who do you hire? Well most of the time your realtor will provide you with a recommendation, but some times that may not be the right choice. When it come to purchasing your next home for your family, you want to make sure you hire the right professional for the job. At Pinnacle Home  Inspections we make sure all our inspections are completed above and beyond for our clients. When you hire us to inspect your property we will give you a full examination of the major components of the home. We abide by the InterNACHI  Standards of Practice for completing Home Inspections and also abide by the Code of Ethics set forth by InterNACHI.

An inspection is a general, visual inspection of the house. Our inspection report covers the major visible and accessible systems of the house: structural, plumbing, electric, heating and cooling, general interior, insulation, ventilation, siding, windows, doors, roofs and attached garages.
When you get an inspection, you are purchasing an educated opinion, not a guarantee.

A report is not a warranty. It does not guarantee that the house is sound or that you will never encounter any problems. We help people understand what they are buying or what they are selling, in the case of a pre-listing inspection.

Some deficiencies can only be found by tearing apart the structure, which inspectors do not do. Inspectors do not move furniture, rugs, personal belongings or other items. Inspectors do not inspect areas which are inaccessible (wall interiors, wet crawl spaces, unsafe roofs, etc.).

Buying a home?

The process can be stressful. A home inspection is supposed to give you peace of mind but, depending on the findings, it may have the opposite effect. You will be asked to absorb a lot of information over a short period of time.  Your inspection will entail a written report, including checklists and photos, and what the inspector tells you during the inspection. All of this combined with the seller's disclosure and what you notice yourself can make the experience overwhelming. What should you do?


Home inspectors are professionals, and if yours is a member of InterNACHI, then you can trust that he is among the most highly trained in the industry. Most of your inspection will be related to maintenance recommendations and minor imperfections. These are good to know about.

However, the issues that really matter will fall into four categories:

  1. major defects, such as a structural failure;
  2. conditions that can lead to major defects, such as a roof leak;
  3. issues that may hinder your ability to finance, legally occupy, or insure the home if not rectified immediately; and
  4. safety hazards, such as an exposed, live buss bar at the electrical panel.

Anything in these categories should be addressed as soon as possible. Often, a serious problem can be corrected inexpensively to protect both life and property (especially in categories 2 and 4).

Most sellers are honest and are often surprised to learn of defects uncovered during an inspection. It’s important to realize that a seller is under no obligation to repair everything mentioned in your inspection report. No house is perfect. Keep things in perspective.

And remember that homeownership is both a joyful experience and an important responsibility, so be sure to call on your InterNACHI Certified Professional Inspector® to help you devise an annual maintenance plan that will keep your family safe and your home in top condition for years to come.
