The Home Inspection Process
Need a home inspection, building inspection, radon testing or termite and pest inspection?
Each home inspection includes a thorough visual examination of the home's readily accessible systems and components. We provide our clients the information they need to make an informed decision about the property being inspected, in a clear, easy to read, professional format complete with photographs. The completed report is emailed the same day as the inspection for your convenience.
What We Do…
The inspector will typically spend 2 to 3 hours at the inspection thoroughly evaluating all aspects of the property from the basement to the roof and all areas in between. Performing a thorough inspection finds more defects. The bottom line is that you save more money. Most contracts allow negotiations with the seller to make repairs or give you credit at closing. So the more defects found, the more money you can potentially save.
I don’t rush through the home inspection. I never do more than two home inspections per day. This allows me time to do a thorough inspection of your new home.
We Encourage You To Be There…
We want you to come along with us during the home inspection, especially if you are new to the home buying process. It is very important that you are there from start to finish. You can see what the home inspector is doing, ask him questions, and see his findings first hand.
We Want Customers For Life!
Because we want you as a Customer “For Life,” we’re happy to answer any questions you might have about your home anytime in the future. Just give us a call!
A thorough inspection of these components can reveal potential problems that may exist. This information will be highlighted in your inspection report giving you a checklist of problems found and details to consider with your purchasing decision.
Sample Home Inspection Report: View the Sample Report Here
The top home inspectors in today's business don't produce handwritten reports. A professional inspector will provide you with a narrative report or a combination of a checklist and a narrative report. A home inspector should be able to e-mail you a copy of a sample report. If the report is three or four pages long, don't hire that person. While lengths of reports may vary, comprehensive reports average between 15 and 25 pages and contain color photographs highlighting defects or problems.
The report should not contain repair costs or action plans for repairs. Home Inspectors inspect - they don't repair and any inspector that makes repairs should always be avoided due to the conflict of interest in that situation.
