A home cannot fail an inspection. A professional home inspection gives you an independent, unbiased view of any problems and their solutions, so that you will have all the facts you need to make a sound, informed decision.
Depending on the size and condition of the home, a thorough home inspection for and average size home(2,000 sq ft.) will usually take between two and four hours to complete. Ideally, you will accompany your inspector during the consultation, so that you will have visual reinforcement of your written report.
We take our inspection reports seriously. Every inspection is a complete and thorough analysis of all the major systems and components in the home. The report includes a clear description of what we have found with any problem areas noted, so you can easily identify them. A detailed summary page with estimated cost of repairs and/or replacements is also included as one of our features. Digital photos also accompany the report, making what is written in the report much clearer to understand.Our home inspectors also provide free telephone consultation after your inspection.
