FAQ

What is a home inspection? 

A home inspection is an objective examination of the condition of the visible and accessible components of a home.

 

Why do I need a home inspection? 

The purchase of a home is one of the largest single investments you will ever make. You should want to learn as much as you can about the property and the need for major repairs before you buy. The inspection will address the positive aspects of a home, as well as maintenance that will be necessary to keep your home in working order.

 

What is the cost for the inspection? 

Our home inspections are priced based on the square footage and the age of the home.

 

I am building a home. Should I have it inspected? 

Absolutely so. The cost of the home inspection is quite a minimal fee when compared to the price of a new home. Items most often observed in a new home inspection can be unfinished repairs, HVAC not connected properly, cut joists (typically by subcontractors), and inadequate drainage. These undiscovered defects become the new owners’ liability.

 

What is the reporting method? 

A comprehensive checklist inspection report is provided at the end of the inspection. “Cost to Cure Estimates” are provided with every inspection. A computerized checklist with color photos is forwarded to the client upon receipt.
