A general home inspection is a visual inspection for system and major accessible component defects and safety issues. The inspection is not technically exhaustive. A “general home inspection” and a “home inspection” are the same thing.
A home inspection is designed to reflect, as accurately as possible, the visible condition of the home at the time of the inspection. Conditions at a home for sale can change radically in only a day or two, so a home inspection is not meant to guarantee what condition a home will be in when the transaction closes. It’s not uncommon for conditions to change between the time of the inspection and the closing date.
Home inspectors are not experts in every home system but are generalists trained to recognize evidence of potential problems in the different home systems and their major components. Inspectors need to know when a problem is serious enough to recommend a specialist inspection.
He was able to assist us with all of these questions, and was not rushed when speaking with us.
D & D Home Inspection Services (Tom Davis) was the home inspector for our house we purchased in Jacksonville, North Carolina 4 weeks ago. He provided a very detailed inspection report, and then was available for all of our follow up questions that we had. Because we were new to this area of North Carolina, we had many questions regarding the local standards of homes, and local codes. He was able to assist us with all of these questions, and was not rushed when speaking with us. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a home inspector in Onslow County North Carolina!
