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.
on the size and condition of the home, a thorough home inspection will take no more than four hours, usually between three
and four hours. 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've found with
any problem areas noted, so you can easily identify them. Our inspectors also provide a free telephone consultation for as
long as you own the home.
A thorough home inspection will include the following:
| ~ Roof (shingles, flashings, chimneys, vents, trim and gutters, drip edges, skylights,
downspouts, and other visible roof related items) |
