1 poke wood and siding with a awl or screwdriver to make sure its not rotten
2 shake counters and hand rails - jump on floor and stairs to see if solid
3 look for stains, mold, or cracks on ceilings and walls
4 turn appliances on & off
seriously I would only suggest this product if it were a free library rental
Now, I will state why I bought this dvd. I wanted material (book and dvd) that will illustrate on how detect damage structure (floors, ceilings, pipes, and boilers) in a house. To be able to see a very costly investment is a good thing.
After I viewed Home Inspection from A to Z DVD by Guy Cozzi, I started to laugh out loud to myself. Guy vaguely talked, not illustrated, about damage. He mainly pointed to a good wall (floor, or ceiling) and vaguely said what he thinks could happen. I felt like a Doooonkeeey after watching this dvd.
By viewing this, I am sure that the real inspection was thorough and professional.
I was very impressed.
I wasn't aware the builders only have to follow the minimum standards with construction. After learning from the dvd I realized there were parts of the construction process that my builder could have improved upon to exceed the minimum standards.
The company that produced the dvd has other books and dvds which have received 5 star ratings from Amazon Top 50 reviewers. That was the basis for my purchase decision since I know that those reviews are always valid and trustworthy.
The dvd comes with a free download guidebook that had additional information and explains what topics are and are not covered on a $20 dvd which made sense to me. For $20 it's a great deal and wonderful information. If I need more details on any particular topic due to the limits of a dvd length then I have the dvd guidebook and this company's 400+ page home inspection book which covers everything in great detail. Each dvd in the series discussed different part of the home.
