Home Inspection

Mainka Home Inspection Services strives to protect the interest of our
clients by performing the most thorough and accurate home inspection
possible. Home inspections cover the structural, electrical, mechanical,
and plumbing systems of the house. We provide our clients with a
personal walk through the property immediately following the inspection.
The written report, including digital photos, will be completed within twenty-
four (24) hours of the inspection.

During the Structural Review the Inspector will:

  • Physically get on the roof (when possible)
  • Inspect the entire roofing system
  • Inspect all roof penetrations
  • Inspect the attic checking for water penetration, proper framing,  
    load bearing walls, down to and including the foundation system.
  • In the case of pier and beam foundations, the inspector will crawl
    below the house to determine if the un-level seating of the house is
    typical for an older structure or if there is something structurally
    significant in need of repair below the house.

During the Electrical Review the inspector will:

  •  Inspect the electrical service panel
  •  Inspect accessible outlets
  •  Inspect switches, ceiling fans, and light fixtures

During the Mechanical Review the Inspector will:

  • Inspect the central air conditioner and heater
  • Inspect all built in appliances in the house, including but not
    limited to, the oven, microwave, dishwasher, garbage disposal,
    and garage door opener.

During the Plumbing Review the Inspector will:

  • Inspect for proper operation of all sinks, faucets, commodes, bath
    tubs, showers, and hot water heaters.

Pool Inspections

Just as a home inspection informs you about the condition of the home
you are interested in purchasing, a pool inspection informs you about the
condition of the pool.

The intent of a pool inspection is to evaluate the current condition of all
accessible pool components and the inspection consists of four phases:

  • Pool / spa placement and protection. This includes fencing, gates,
    screen enclosure, proximity to electrical wires, location of electrical
    outlets and placement to the home

  • Pool / spa vessel and coping. This includes the pool and deck
    surface condition (cracks, discoloration, and pitting) and the coping
    surrounding the pool (open joints, cracking). Drains are inspected
    for the presence of  anti-vortex covers for safety reasons

  • Pool / spa equipment. This includes inspection of pool/spa lights,
    the presence of  GFCI devices, junction.

  • Pool / spa equipment operation. This includes operation of the
    pump,  inspection for leakage, proper skimming and filtration,
    heater activation, filter pressure and the operation of the spa
    blowern box condition and location, pumps, filters, piping, timers,
    disconnects, heaters, controls, accessories, skimmers, and the
    appropriate electrical bonding is in place.
