Even if it had, there’s no guarantee that an inspector will uncover every problem. “We can’t see through walls,” says Frank Lesh, a practicing home inspector and president of the American Society of Home Inspectors. “And we can’t predict the future.” In other words, you can’t fault the inspector if a roof was in decent condition at inspection time but then leaks after a storm tears off a shingle.
