Winter time is here and with the cold and rain I thought I would talk a little about how this effects the home inspection.

Home Inspector work in all weather. From 100 + degrees to Freezing cold.

If it is less than 60 drgrees that day the AC system is not operated, a visual inspection is done.

If it is wet outside the Inspector will not open and inspect any exterior electricl panels and will not check exterior outlets. The chance of electrucution is too graet to risk.

If the roofing material is wet, then its the inspectors judgement if he feels safe on the roof on not to get on it.

Spinkler systems are normally winterized and will not e checked.

If the home has a crawl space and its wet under thier then the inspector does not have to enter the area.

Knowing what is and is not covered y colder weather can be helpful.
