Q. What do you Inspect?
A. As a Certified Home Inspector I have an 11 page check list that covers all of the State required components of the building. I inspect all major components of a building. This is not a technically exhaustive or a code inspection. I will point out current codes where safety issues are concerned.

Q. Do you inspect pools?
A. Yes. They should have water in them and the pool equipment should be working.
Q. Do you climb on the roof?
A. Yes, if the roof is not too high or too steep. Some roofs are too fragile to walk on and will not be accessed. I will view any roof I can't climb on from the sides with a ladder, through windows and with binoculars where accessible.
