The home buying process can be confusing and stressful. Not only do you need to consider things such as price and location, you also have to worry about whether the house itself has any hidden issues that could become costly surprises down the road.
In order to prepare the report, an inspector must conduct a visual inspection of the house. The inspection process typically takes about 3-4 hours to complete. This may vary, according to the size and condition of the home. We encourage you to be present at least at the end of the inspection for consultation. This will give you a chance to ask questions and become familiar with the systems of the home.
We will inspect all the structural elements and systems of the home. Items typically included in an inspection are:
- Crawlspace and Basement (structure)
- Roof and Attic
- Electrical System
- Plumbing System
- Heating and Air Conditioning
When the inspection is complete, we will go through any of the issues that were discovered and discuss them with you. We will also tell you about any routine maintenance that should be performed, as well as answer any questions you may have. You will receive a full written report of the inspection which is emailed to you the following day and you can print or download the pdf file to your computer.
