Our detailed home inspection process has been designed to assure you a thorough, easy to understand overview of the conditions of the home you are looking to purchase. Buying a home is typically the biggest investment you will ever make, which is why it is important to have a professional inspect the home for defects and safety hazards that may not be obvious to you as a prospective buyer. Such defects can range from simple replacements or repairs, to severe damage or safety concerns. Additionally, many mortgage companies require a home inspection on a property before approving the home loan.

A home inspection is a visual examination of the home's major structure, systems and components that are visible and safely accessible. We begin our home inspections on the roof. The roof inspection is one of the most crucial areas of a home inspection. CNHInspections will walk all roofs that are safely accessible. We will then report on the type of roof covering material and the visible condition of the roof covering. We will evaluate the visible flashings, the roof drainage and gutter system; the chimney system, roofing trim, soffits and fascia boards. We will identify any obvious deficiencies of roof penetrations and through-the-roof components and their flashings; as well as any visible deficiencies in the underlying structure.

We will continue the roof inspection in the attic looking for any visible roofing problems that can be inspected from accessible areas of the attic, such as signs of sheathing problems, evidence of moisture intrusion; or damaged structural components, such as split rafters and damaged trusses. After the roof inspection we will begin inspecting exterior walls, the driveway, deck, and more. We will then move inside to examine the walls, ceilings, floors, doors, and windows. The heating, air-conditioning, plumbing, and electrical systems will all be examined to ensure they are safe and functioning as intended. Additionally, we inspect all bathrooms, kitchens, and laundry rooms, along with the basement or crawl space. Along the way we tag the main water shut-off valve and the automatic lawn sprinkler shut-off valve.

CNHInspections Infrared Thermal Imaging



All of our inspections include Infrared Thermal Imaging. Thermal imaging is simply the process of converting infrared (IR) radiation (heat) into visible images that depict the spatial distribution of temperature differences in a scene viewed by a thermal camera. All objects emit infrared energy, known as a heat signature. An infrared camera (also known as a thermal imager) detects and measures the infrared energy of objects. The camera converts that infrared data into an electronic image that shows the apparent surface temperature of the object being measured.



Our thermal imagers are used to inspect sites of possible plumbing leaks, mainly through walls and pipes; possible roof leaks, as well as heat loss from walls or HVAC equipment. We temporarily remove breaker panel coverings and inspect the panel for abnormal heating associated with high resistance or excessive current flow, which is the main cause of many problems in electrical systems. Infrared thermography allows us to see these invisible thermal signatures of impending damage before the damage occurs.

Two basic thermal patterns associated with electrical failure are: A high resistance caused by poor surface contact and an over loaded circuit or multi-phase imbalance problem. When current flows through an electric circuit, part of the electrical energy is converted into heat energy. This is normal. But, if there is an abnormally high resistance in the circuit or abnormally high current flow, abnormally high heat is generated which is wasteful, potentially damaging and not normal. Having CNHInspections see through the lens of an infrared camera may reveal plumbing leaks not seen to the naked eye and electrical hazards unknown to the occupants. 


We encourage clients to attend the end of the inspection for a walk-through with our professional inspector. A home inspection is a key component in making an informed buying decision. Therefore, CNHInspections will make sure the walk-through is giving you a clear, full view of the actual condition of the home and its systems. During this time you can learn information and ask questions about the home's maintenance, systems and components that may provide useful for the transaction. By attending the inspection, you will gain a better understanding of the home's condition, which will give you insight into its potential selling points and defects.
