How long does a home inspection take?
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.
What does a home inspection include?
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 defects that would affect a typical buyer's decision to purchase.
How much does an inspection cost?
Our fee for a home inspection is based on the total square footage of the main structure. However, some factors will affect the fee. If you are comparing home inspection companies, the fee charged should not be the deciding factor unless the level of service offered is identical. Remember, you are considering a major purchase and your choice of home inspector should be based on getting the best value, not just the best price.
What is included in the fee?
A complete home inspection conducted by an experienced licensed professional. Comprehensive digital home inspection report, complimentary services and warranties, and technical support for as long as you own your home.
Can I attend the home inspection?
Definitely! We encourage you to attend; The inspection is a valuable learning experience for most homebuyers.
Can I bring my family?
We recommend that you not bring your family; this is a technical evaluation, and you should focus on the inspector's comments - the fewer distractions, the better.
Do I get a written report? And when?
You do receive a written digital 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 is completed.
If the home is in bad shape, will you tell us not to buy the house?
No. Our goal is to report on the condition of the house, indicating potential repairs and further evaluation by licensed contractors. Ultimately, it is your decision as to whether or not you buy the house. The home inspection is very important, but it is only one piece of the puzzle. Only you know all of the factors at play.
When do the included 90 Day Warranties go into affect?
The 90 Day Warranties are valid 90 days from the date of inspection or 22 days after closing, whichever comes later.
