Home inspectors conduct inspections of newly built or already existing homes, condominiums, townhomes and other dwellings. They inspect a home's systems, components and structure to check and report the overall condition. In addition to examining structural quality, home inspectors inspect all home features, including roofing, house exterior, attached garage or carport, foundation, interior, plumbing, electrical, heating and cooling systems. Although they look for and report violations of building codes, they do not have the power to enforce compliance with the codes.
