- In order to prepare a report, an inspector must conduct a visual non-destructive examination of the systems and structure of a home from the roof to the foundation. Having a home inspected is similar to getting a physical check up. If a problem or symptom is discovered, the inspector may recommend further evaluation or any repair or upgrades needed. The inspection process typically takes about 3 hours to complete. This, of course, may vary, according to the size, age and condition of the home.
- A home inspection is not a warranty or insurance program but a method to assist buyers in understanding the condition of their new home.
- After the inspection is completed, we strongly encourage you, the buyer, to accompany the inspector on a walk-thru so that we can explain anything that was found during the inspection. This will also give you a chance to ask questions and become familiar with the systems and the components of the property. We welcome sellers and agents to attend as well.
- Computerized reports are produced for all inspections. Our reports are easy to read and cover all areas that are inspected. All major and possible problems areas are documented with supporting photographs.
