Pre-Purchase Home Inspections In Wichita, KS & Surrounding Areas

Pre-purchase home inspections are a way for buyers to find out if they’re buying a home with hidden defects. This type of inspection can help protect against unpleasant surprises and costly repairs after the purchase has been completed. It is important for homebuyers to have the information necessary before making such an expensive purchase so that they know what they are getting into and can make an informed decision about whether or not this property will suit their needs in the long term.

Profound Home Inspections thoroughly inspects and reports on the following when visible and accessible:


The grounds around the home will be inspected looking at the condition of the driveway, walkways, porches, decks, stairs, railings as well as the vegetation. The grading around the home is very important.


The exterior of your home is more than just how it looks. You also want to make sure it is protecting you against the elements. The exterior part of the home inspection will include siding, exterior doors, flashing & trim, windows, walkways, stairs, drainage, patios & decks, driveways.


A large part of buying a home is wanting to be safe from the weather. This starts with the roof. The inspection of the roof includes the roof coverings, gutters, downspouts, flashings, chimney, vents, skylights, roof penetrations, as well as the general structure, and condition.


The garage is inspected for the overall condition as well as the operation of the door itself. Proper garage to living area is examined for fire safety.


The attic is an important component of the structure. We will report on the insulation levels, access points as well is the framing and proper ventilation.


The interior is where you will feel safe. We inspect the condition of the ceilings, floors and walls. The operation of windows, doors, cabinetry are also evaluated.


Kitchens are for gathering and making memories. We will inspect every appliance in the kitchen, including but not limited to, the range, cooktops, dishwasher, disposal, microwave, etc.


The HVAC system is at the top of our minds during the home inspection. Comfort in the winter and summer are keys to quality of life. Will will inspected the AC condenser, furnaces as well as any visible ductwork throughout the home.


The electrical system for the home is all about safety. We will evaluate the electrical service to the home, amperage of the service, main electrical panel and distribution panel(s). Receptacles, GFCI and AFCI protection, visible wiring, smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, lights, switches, etc.


Plumbing is a component that we don’t think about until something leaks. That is why plumbing tends to get a lot of attention. We will check the main water supply, shut-off valves, water heater, toilets, interior water supply, sinks, showers, bath-tubs, drains, as well as waste, and ventilation systems.


The foundation is just that, the foundation. Without a quality foundation, movement can occur. We will thoroughly inspect the floor structure, framing, support. The foundation walls are inspected for cracking, movement as well as signs of moisture intrusion.

Couldn’t say enough good things about Jake and his business! His inspection report was very thorough and detailed, which is exactly what I was looking for as a first time homebuyer. He was also easy to reach with quick response. If I ever need another home inspection, I would 110% use Profound home inspections again!

The pre-purchase home inspection is not an appraisal of your future home. It is simply a prelude to one. Our pre-purchase home inspection does not determine the value of your prospective property nor do we make any recommendations about whether you should buy it or how much you should pay. Rather, we provide you with a pre-purchase home inspection report that highlights the condition of the property at the date and time of the inspection.

Our inspections are designed to assist in your evaluation and decision-making process and can clarify what you can expect when you take title to the property. It will help you ask intelligent questions about the property so you can be better prepared when talking with your real estate agent or lawyer…or even the seller! If corrective action needs to be taken, our comprehensive pre-purchase home inspections help you prepare for such steps to be taken before closing.
