Home Inspections 101

Are you in the market for a new house? Are you considering a home inspection? Home inspections can provide invaluable information about the condition of a house, and they are an essential step in ensuring the safety of your family and making sure that you’re buying the right home. Here’s everything you need to know about home inspections from Crown Home Inspections, the 5 star rated and fully insured home inspection company serving greater Olathe, KS.

What is a Home Inspection?

A home inspection is an objective visual examination of the physical structure and systems of a house from top to bottom. It evaluates the condition of a home’s heating and cooling systems, plumbing, electrical, roofing, insulation and ventilation just to name a few. The inspector will look for any potential problems or safety hazards so that you know exactly what kind of house you’re getting into before you buy.

Why Should You Get a Home Inspection?


A professional home inspection can give you peace of mind before you purchase your new home. It can reveal any costly repairs or defects that may be present in the house, so that they can be addressed before you move in. A home inspection can also help protect your financial investment by uncovering unexpected problems that could cost thousands of dollars to fix down the road.
