A home inspection is typically described as "a visual inspection of the home and its components". So what does that include? It includes quite a bit: Roof, plumbing, heating, cooling, electrical, attic, structure, and much more.
Remember though, that it is a "visual" inspection. So no matter how much a home inspector would love to tell you whats behind a wall, home inspectors unfortunately do not have x-ray vision.
Overall, a home inspection is a fantastic learning experience, and a critical part of of the home buying process.
