We look at the building interior for a number of reasons. It provides clues to structural problems and is often the area where water leakage is first detectable. The interior finishes themselves usually reflect the overall building quality, and their condition helps indicate the level of overall maintenance. The house interior contains the distribution points of the major systems. For example, each room should have inspector is function rather than appearance, and emphasis is placed on whether the room will work as it was intended. We do not comment on matters of personal taste.
The major components of the interior inspection are:
- walks, ceilings, and floors
- trim, counters, and cabinets
- windows, skylights, and solariums
- basement and crawlspace leakage
