An inspector will check the roof, basement, heating system, water heater, air-conditioning system, structure, plumbing, electrical, and many other aspects of buildings. They look for improper building practices, those items that require extensive repairs, items that are general maintenance issues, as well as some fire and safety issues. However, a home inspection is not technically exhaustive and does not imply that every defect will be discovered. Some inspection companies offer 90-day limited warranties to protect clients from unexpected mechanical and structural failures; otherwise, inspectors are not responsible for future failures. A general inspection standard for all types of buildings can be found at the National Academy of Building Inspection Engineers. These standards serve as a minimum level of care required by the various associations mentioned; many inspectors exceed these standards within their basic inspection or offer additional services such as inspecting pools, sprinkler systems, checking radon levels, and inspecting for wood destroying organisms. Another aspect of home inspections which is often over looked is foreclosure inspections; these inspections are often referred to as REO (Real Estate Owned) inspections. Professional home inspectors prefer to leave these inspections to the professional Certified Field Inspectors and the Certified Property Preservation Specialist. CFI and CPPS are typically certified through organization such as the North American Association of Real Property Inspectors (NAARPI).
