What to expect when we're inspecting

If you are in need of a home inspection in the Greater Springfield area, Crux Home Inspections is here to help. We’re focused on education, and our goal is to provide you with all of the information you need about the property in question, and its overall condition. We welcome our clients to walk through the home with us and to ask any questions they may have throughout the inspection process.

Crux Home Inspections has a thorough, multi-point checklist that ensures that no stone is left unturned, and we will explain the overall, general condition of the home and its systems to you and your agent after your inspection is complete.


What’s included in a standard CRUX Home Inspections Report?


The roof is one of the most costly and important structures. We will examine the roof, its structure, shingles/tiles, flashing, gutters, downspouts and more.


This includes the exterior walkways and doors, siding, eaves and soffits, fascia, paint, and other such elements of the home’s exterior.


We will visually inspect plumbing fixtures for proper function, including tubs, sinks, hoses, showers, and water shut-off valves, and look for leaks and other such flaws.


We will visually inspect the HVAC systems including ducts, filters, furnaces and air conditioning units.


We will visually inspect both interior and exterior electrical systems including service drops, service masts, grounding, outlets, meters, circuit breakers, and other such systems.


We will test and examine all major appliances like hot water heaters, washers and dryers, dishwashers, refrigerators, freezers, and more.


Doors, Windows, and Interior

We will check doors and windows for proper sealing and drafts, signs of mold or water damage, and more. We will also check the condition of all interior spaces.

Foundations, Basements, and Crawl Spaces

We will examine the foundation, crawlspaces and basements to look for signs of things like past water damage, foundation cracking or shifting, and other such potentially expensive issues.

Attic, Ventilation, and Insulation

We will examine the attic to ensure it is properly ventilated, check for mold and moisture, assess the level of insulation, and more.
