These items are very specific to this area, and based on my experience:
Standing water in gutters/ debris in gutters; rotting trim and siding that is in contact with the ground; rodent activity in attics and crawlspaces; missing insulation for the floors above the crawlspace
EIG follows the Washington State Standards of Practice for home Inspectors: - Chapter 308-408C WAC

Yes. Some builders have their own 'inspectors' and they do a great job, but they are generally not state-licensed home inspectors. It is a good idea to get you home inspected before you move in, and then at around 10 months so that we can capture all of the defects (cosmetic and material) that showed up and get that comprehensive list to your builder before your 1-year warranty expires.
