NJ home inspections don’t cover everything. Certainly, a home inspection is thorough and covers all of the basics. You can count on the structure, plumbing, electrical, appliances, windows and the roof to be inspected. You should be aware of what your New Jersey home inspector may not examine.
Items that will not be a part of a normal, everyday home inspection include the septic tank, if there is one, and yard and plant health, especially in winter. Your home inspector will certainly be able to inspect the plumbing system in a home but cannot dive into the actual condition of a septic system or the connectors to a city’s system. Likewise, different times of the year offer different conditions for grass, trees, and shrubs. An in-depth landscape review might best be done by a certified horticulturist.
