A few of the items Kikin Inspection will be inspecting are as follows. Below is just a sample of topics covered in the inspection.
The electrical system is checked for sufficient capacity and safety, and evaluated in terms of its current condition and suitability for future use. Upgrades and repairs are recommended where appropriate.
The piping and fixtures throughout the house are checked for function flow and life expectancies. They are screened for unsanitary conditions and potential repairs, freeze vulnerability, or spillage/overflow. Laundry equipment, tile work, and domestic water heating equipment are also surveyed.
Heating and Cooling
Inspection will include (when accessible) heating and air conditioning systems, vent systems, flues and chimneys.

Inspection will cover siding or exterior covering including flashings and trim. Also included are decks, exterior doors, grading of soil, vegetation, grading, surface drainage, and retaining walls on the property when any of these are likely to adversely affect the building.
