Weather does affect how much information can be provided in a home inspection. When it snows during the winter months, the snow can hide defects around the exterior. When the weather is dry, it can hide any potential leaks in a property’s exterior or foundation. Or, when it rains, it makes it very difficult for an inspector to complete their inspection effectively, but it does help find leaks in a structure. Inspectors use a lot of equipment while inspecting a property, such as cameras and electrical devices. Most of these devices do not operate effectively in the rain and can be damaged. So, if an inspection is scheduled during a weather event, it should be rescheduled, if possible.
