I will perform an inspection of the interior of the electrical panel by removing the panel cover and checking for any material defects or safety concerns.
I will be checking to see that the circuit breakers are labeled. This is a safety concern if they are not. .
I will operate the air conditioning and heating system using normal operating controls(ie, thermostat) checking that the systems are functioning correctly.
Approximate age of the units will be determined if able to properly identify the system by label.
I will do a visual inspection of the water heater, making sure it is functioning as intended and has all the required safety features.
I will visually inspect and operate all plumbing fixtures throughout the home, checking for adequate water pressure and active water leaks.
I will walk the roof and visually inspect the shingles, all flashing and roof penetrations. This is a procedure to evaluate any possible avenues for water intrusion.
If there is a safety concern and we are not able to walk the roof, we will utilize our 4K resolution drone, we call "Maverick", which gives an equally thorough picture of the roofing system.
