Your Home Inspection — What it Includes

At Lucent Home Inspections, we begin at the top of your home and systematically work down to the foundation. Here’s a look at what your inspector will visually examine in between.

Roof

Your roof gets a thorough examination to ensure it’s doing a good job keeping the elements out and letting fresh air in where it needs to.

Exterior

Siding, decks, and exterior elements examined to see if they are in working order. The property and landscaping immediately surrounding your home are also inspected to make sure it doesn’t contain any surprises.

Interior

All the major systems and operational items within your home are inspected to make sure everything is in working order. If it’s not, your inspector will let you know in-person and in the inspection report.

Foundation

Your foundations, support beams, and load-bearing devices are visually examined for signs of damage that can undermine your entire home.

Home Inspection Process

If this is your first home inspection or you haven’t had one in a while, you may not know what a thorough inspection entails these days. Below is the process we follow to deliver exceptional home inspections in Peoria, Bloomington, Normal, IL, and the surrounding areas.

Visual Inspection

Visual Inspection

An inspector’s eyes and experience are two of their most valuable tools. We start each inspection with a visual examination of your home’s interior, exterior, and the grounds surrounding  it.

Test Operational Items

Test Operational Items

The operational items in a home are often the first things to break down over time. That’s why we go through them one by one to make sure nothing is about to give out on you.

Organize Findings

During an inspection, we take extensive notes so that you have highly actionable information that will help you make clear decisions. All those notes get prioritized for you based on how pressing they are.
