Full Answer

A home inspection checklist divides a home into its interior, exterior and mechanical systems. Home inspectors do not typically inspect for asbestos, lead paint, radon gas, pests or toxic mold, all of which require specialized certification.

Home inspection of the exterior of a house typically includes the roof, chimneys, soffits, gutters, cladding, windows, doors, decks and porches. When inspecting mechanical systems, home inspectors look at heating, air conditioning, plumbing and electrical systems. Inspection of the interior typically includes floors, walls, ceilings, bathrooms, the kitchen, fireplaces, skylights, the foundation, the basement and the attic.
