Let's face it, the only time an attic is inspected is during a real estate transaction (that is, if the home was inspected by a professional home inspector). No one goes into their attic unless they absolutely HAVE to! When was the last time you checked your attic? If we inspected your home prior to you purchasing it, that may have likely been the first and last time that your attic was inspected. I'm a home inspector and I'll be honest, I do not regularly check my attic as often as I should.
You might be wondering why you should inspect your attic regularly and how often it should be inspected. Generally, an attic should be inspected every six months but that might not be realistic for most homeowners. So, once a year should be the bare minimum. I tend to inspect my attic either in the spring or fall. In the winter it is way too cold up there and in the summer, it is way too hot. So spring or fall are the ideal times in my opinion.

I've come across a lot of interesting tidbits of information during my 29 year career as a home inspector. I've been told that I'm pretty meticulous and a good 'teacher', so hopefully you'll find some interesting information here..
