Attic Inspections

During a New York State home inspection, the attic is an important area to evaluate, and home inspectors are required to observe and report on any safe and accessible attic space. Safety considerations are paramount, and inspectors are not required to enter attics without walkable floors or where entry would be unsafe. By thoroughly assessing the attic, a home inspector can provide valuable insights into the overall condition and safety of the home.

Our comprehensive attic inspections cover various areas, including but not limited to:

  • Observation and Reporting: Home inspectors are required to observe and report on any safe and readily accessible attic space. This means that if the attic can be easily reached and inspected without posing any safety risks, the home inspector must include it in their evaluation. The method of observation used, such as accessing the attic through a pull-down ladder or a staircase, must be documented in the inspection report.

  • Conditions Observed: The home inspector is responsible for reporting on the conditions observed in the attic. This includes noting any visible issues, such as the presence of moisture or leaks, insulation quality, ventilation, electrical wiring, and structural integrity. The condition of the attic can have a direct impact on the energy efficiency, comfort, and safety of the home, so it’s essential to thoroughly assess it during the inspection process.

  • Safety Considerations: Home inspectors are not required to enter any attic where no walkable floor is present or where entry would be deemed unsafe in the opinion of the home inspector. This means that if the attic is not easily accessible due to the lack of a proper floor or if the home inspector determines that entering the attic would pose a safety risk, they are not required to inspect it. Safety is a top priority during a home inspection, and inspectors are trained to assess potential hazards and make informed decisions to protect themselves and their clients.
