First of all, let me start by saying, it takes more than just a look to inspect a home. I use all of my senses during an inspection. Sight, smell, sound, feel, sometimes taste (not always by choice)house1, and common sense! With that being said I will go back to the original Question. What do I look at during a home inspection?
Everything! But maybe I should be a little more specific. A typical inspection begins with a walk around the exterior. At this time I talk with my client about the condition of the siding, windows, foundation, site grading, doors and roof. I also recommend periodic maintenance that should be done to maintain the exterior.
Next we start on the interior. I usually like to begin at the top and work my way down. Ceilings, walls, windows, outlets, doors, floors and thats just the bedrooms. In the bathrooms I inspect the toilet, shower, tub vanity, faucets, and drains. In the kitchen it is more of the same. Lights, counters, cabinets, electric, appliances, floors .. No stone is left unturned.
Then its on to the mechanical. The furnace, AC, and water heater are inspected for wear, neglect and proper installation. Each unit is operated to ensure proper function. The electrical panel is opened and inspected for improper wiring practices.
And if thats not enough, we still have to look in the attic, crawlspace and garage. So, as you can tell, a home inspection is an in depth look at the true condition of a house.
