In California, a home inspector does not perform any invasive and destructive acts. These include cutting into walls, removing electrical panels, outlets, or covers, inspecting using plumbing scopes, etc.
Home inspections are not intended to identify concealed defects. I cannot see under carpets, in walls, down pipes, and the like. During home inspections, I can’t look at and review your property’s code or design. Additionally, home inspections cannot provide you with an insurance policy, guarantee, or warranty on your home.
Moreover, a home inspection is not intended to predict the future performance or life expectancy of your home. It also does not function as an environmental review or an energy audit.
