This includes determiningwhether systems are still performing their intended functions.There are limitations to the scope of this Inspection. It provides a general overview of the more obvious repairs that maybe needed. It is not intended to be an exhaustive list. The ultimate decision of what to repair or replace is yours. Onehomeowner may decide that certain conditions require repair or replacement, while another will not.1. The Home Inspection provides you with a basic overview of the condition of the property. Because your HomeInspector has only a limited amount of time to go through the property, the Inspection is not technically exhaustive. If youhave concerns about any of the conditions noted, please consult the text that is referenced in the report.Some conditions noted, such as foundation cracks or other signs of settling in a house, may either be cosmetic or mayindicate a potential structural problem that is beyond the scope of the Home Inspection.If you are concerned about any conditions noted in the report, we strongly recommend that you consult a qualifiedlicensed contractor or engineering specialist. These professionals can provide a more detailed analysis of anyconditions noted in the report at an additional cost.2. A Home Inspection does not include identifying defects that are hidden behind walls, floors or ceilings. This includeswiring, structure, plumbing and insulation that is hidden or inaccessible.Some intermittent conditions may not be obvious on a Home Inspection because they only happen under certaincircumstances. As an example, your Home Inspector may not discover leaks that occur only during certain weatherconditions or when a specific tap or appliance is being used in everyday life.Home Inspectors will not find conditions that may only be visible when storage or furniture is moved. Inspectors do notremove wall coverings, including wallpaper, or lift flooring, including carpet to look underneath. THE HOME OF HOME INSPECTIONS
