You're spending a great deal of money on this home purchase...
You deserve to know what kind of condition the home is in.

  • Complete home inspection conducted by an experienced professional.
  • Comprehensive written home inspection report.
  • Technical support for as long as you own your home.

Definitely. We encourage you to attend. The inspection is a valuable learning experience for most homebuyers. 

You don't have to take notes during the inspection. We will document everything in a written report. Its much better to follow the inspector through, listening to his comments to make sure you understand. It's also a great opportunity to ask questions and to clarify anything that confuses you. 

We recommend that you not bring your family; this is a technical evaluation, and you will be interacting with the inspector — the fewer distractions, the better.

You do receive a written report. It would be unfair to ask you to remember all of the things we cover during a home inspection. The report includes a summary of the condition of the home and details on all the major systems of the home. It is delivered within 24 hours after the inspection. 

A typical inspection should take 2 to 3 hours to complete. This can vary, given the current condition and size of the home, the accessibility of mechanical systems, and so on. As a courtesy to sellers, we recommend that they are informed of the timeframe in a pre-purchase home inspection situation. 

We inspect the major systems of the house. These include the Roof, Exterior, Structure, Electrical, Heating, Cooling, Plumbing, Insulation, and Interior. Our goal is to identify any existing major problems that would affect a typical buyer's decision to purchase.
