Preparing Your Home For Inspection


  1. Make sure all the dirt and landscaping material is away from the siding of the house.   There should be 4-6 inches of clearance beneath the siding of the house.
  2. Plant growth should be cut back away from the house at least 10-12 inches.
  3. Any stored items should be moved far away from the structure; stored firewood in particular should be moved as far away from the house as is reasonable.
  4. Check the siding and trim for any damage and repair as needed.
  5. Repair any missing caulking around doors, windows, and over nail heads.
  6. Make sure all exterior doors, door knobs and deadbolts are operating properly.
  7. Repair/replace damaged weather stripping in poor condition.
