Hey guys, I am inspecting my first duplex or patio home on Monday in a fairly nice community. Any special considerations or things I should pay special attention to?.. It’s five years old.

Shawn,are you inspecting both sides, or is it a condo? If you’re doing both sides, treat each as a separate home, and take your time. A couple of things I look for is fireblocking in the attic, and if you inspect just one side, make sure there aren’t issues from the other side that would affect your client’s side, such as vent flashings, skylights, or downspout drainage.
