What occurs during an Alban home inspection?

Holding a home inspection is a great way to gain a better understanding of your home's infrastructure, identify areas that need attention and create a list of maintenance tips.

Alban Inspections adheres to the Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics of the American Society of Home Inspectors. Also known as ASHI, this group is the largest, high-quality home group for change. By following these practices Alban offers:

  • An educational home inspection experience.
  • Detailed, competent home inspection practices.
  • Digital cameras to record known and found conditions.
  • Summary sheet to identify issues.

Overall, Alban strives for peace of mind for their customers, as a safe living space is essential for happiness and health.

Alban covers a wide range of home deficiencies and issues. These include:

  • Basement and foundation.
  • Gutters, chimney and home siding.
  • HVAC systems.
  • Kitchen appliances and vents.
  • Outbuildings and garage.
  • Visible insulation.
  • Windows and doors.

Alban also tests for proper temperatures in the home. If the structure is too hot or cold, issues can develop over time, such as mold or leaking vents. We encourage homeowners to accompany their inspector during the entire process. By following the inspector, homeowners can see firsthand the issues that may be affecting their home, gaining a better understanding of preventing problems in the future.

If the homeowner chooses to not follow along during the inspection, that's okay too. At the end of each home walkthrough, an in-depth report on the space will be compiled with any known issues and suggestions outlined.

If no serious issues are found, a home inspection is still a good investment, as warning signs that haven't manifested into actual issues can be taken care of in a more timely manner.
