The kitchen of a home is often considered the heart and soul. This is where the majority of the American public spends most of their time when indoors and not sleeping. Kitchens, which were installed using sub-standard materials and products, will be a source of expensive future upgrades. Poor quality or worn cabinets and counters may require expensive upgrading or repair. Complete kitchen replacement is very expensive. It is normal to spend more than $10,000 on a new kitchen! Recent cosmetic repairs will be looked at carefully to determine the quality of work and whether or not they were done to mask a more serious problem. The inspector will look for water damage around the sink, dishwasher and refrigerator as well as for safety hazards.
