the typical home inspection

A home inspection is a non-invasive, objective, visual inspection of apparent conditions of readily visible, readily accessible installed systems and components of a home from roof to foundation. There are many benefits to having a home inspection performed, the least of which are savings in money and peace of mind. A home inspection also provide you with better understanding of the property conditions you are buying or selling.

The Role of Our Home Inspectors is to:

  •     Encourage clients to accompany the inspector during the inspection          
  •     Educate the client                                                                 
  •     Address any of the clients concerns and answer all questions                      
  •     Point out issues as they are uncovered and explain in understandable language
  •     Explain how systems work and what routine maintenance is needed
