New & Existing Home Inspections

What Is A Home Inspection?
A home inspection is an objective visual examination of the physical structure and systems of a home, from the roof to the foundation. Having a home inspected is like giving it a physical check-up. If problems or symptoms are found, the inspector may recommend further evaluation.

What Is Included In A Home Inspection?
The home inspectors report will review the condition of the home’s heating system, interior plumbing and electrical systems; the roof, attic, and visible insulation; walls, ceilings, floors, windows and doors; the foundation, basement and visible structure.  All of our inspection reports have been through rigorous review to determine that they meet the national standard for reporting their inspection findings.

Can A House Fail Inspection?
No. A professional home inspection is an examination of the current condition of your home.  It is not an appraisal which assigns a market value, or a city inspection which verifies compliance with local codes and standards.  A home inspector will not pass or fail a house, they are only describing the physical condition of a property and indicates what may need repair or replacement.

Do I Have To Attend?
It is always recommended that you accompany the inspector.  This allows you to observe the inspector, ask questions as you learn about the condition of the home, how its systems work, and how to maintain them.  After you have seen the property with the inspector, you will find the written report much easier to understand.

Questions After The Inspection 
The inspector you use should always be available after the inspection is over for questions pertaining to the house.  Use them as a resource about your house even after you have moved in.
