[1] What is a home inspection?

A professional home inspection is a complete visual and interactive observation of all the systems and structural components of a home. Our function is to identify problems and potential issues as well as educate you, our client.

 

 

[2] Why do I need a home inspection?

Whether you are buying or selling a home, you need a professional home inspection. For buyers, a professional home inspection will give you a complete overview of what you are buying. Avoid costly surprises before you move in. For sellers, it will give you a chance to fix previously undiscovered problems before they are found by the buyers inspector. In both cases, the overall buying and selling experience will be much smoother.

 

 

[3] Can't I do the inspection myself?

Chances are you may be familiar with a home and its systems. However, we do high quality inspections on a daily basis. We are professionals. We have the training and expertise to render an unbiased opinion. As the buyer or seller, sometimes it is impossible to completely remove yourself emotionally from the entire process. A professional inspector can see the situation with both eyes wide open and report the facts.

 

 

[4] Do I need to be there during the inspection?

We encourage all of clients to be present at time of inspection. This will give you an opportunity to ask questions and gain valuable insight about your home. 

 

 

[5] How long does an inspection take?

A typical inspection takes around 3 hours, depending on the condition and size of the house. Please plan at least 3-5 hours from start to finish.

 

 

[6] Can you fix the problems uncovered during an inspection?

No! We are an independent third party. It would be a conflict of interest if we fixed the problems we uncovered. We are only in the home inspection business.

 

 

[7] When will I get a copy of the report?  

All of our reports are e-mailed to our clients by 12 noon the following day. If you are not tech savvy, we will personally deliver or mail the report to you.
