What does a Home-Alyze inspection
A typical Home-Alyze inspection takes two-three hours to
It is designed to produce a report that includes an assessment
of the home's foundation, exterior, heating system, ventilation,
plumbing, electrical system, interior, insulation and roof. We also
inspect fireplaces, hot tubs, air conditioning and other components
that are found in some homes.
Every aspect of your home is inspected thoroughly. Take, for
instance, the "electrical system". The main electric panel is one of
the first items that a Home-Alyze inspector will look at. Visually
accessible wiring and a representative number of outlets connected to
the system are examined. Ground wires, polarity, auxiliary panels, and
smoke detectors are inspected as are ground fault interruption devices.
We estimate the type and age of wiring in the home and whether or not
safety upgrades are appropriate. All fuses or breakers are checked for
proper amperage, and we look for loose or frayed wires and if aluminum
wiring has been used.
This thoroughness is extended to every part of the home as
your inspector methodically moves from the furnace and ventilation
system, foundation and wood structure, plumbing, insulation and
exterior right up to the attic and the roof and any features that may
be unique to the home.

What is included in the report?
The Home-Alyze Inspection Report is a comprehensive profile of
the internal systems and structure of your home. It identifies required

rating to indicate the relative importance of each item. It also
includes a maintenance guide for your home, as well as a life cycle and
cost of replacement chart for the home's various components. On the
other hand, the inspection report may indicate that your home does not
require any repairs in the near future. Either way, you gain peace of
mind about the condition and safety of the home.

for you to ask questions and to clarify information, adding significant
value to the inspection process for you.
