What is a Home Inspection?

A Home Inspection is a non-intrusive visual examination of the major components and systems of the house. These include Exterior, Roofing, Structure, Plumbing, Heating/Air Conditioning/Ventilation, Interior, Attic and Insulation.

As the result of the Inspection, during the next 24 hours you will receive a detailed report with high-quality images of every finding, defect or maintenance item. The report will help you make the best decision possible. If you are buying, we recommend keeping the Inspection report as a reference book and a to-do list.

In accordance to the regulations, a Home Inspection is not intended to provide any warranty or serve as an appraisal. The inspector is trained to visually identify the defects and recommend an action or further evaluation.

How long is Home Inspection?

The Home Inspection process usually takes two to three hours depending on size, age and condition of the house.

Why do I need a home inspection?

Having your house inspected means protecting your largest investment from unwanted surprises, giving you a piece of mind and more control over the process of selling or buying the property. It will also protect your pocketbook and provide an extra protection for the health of your family. Any house, no matter how old it is, can have dozens of defects, most of them invisible for untrained eye.

Do you need to inspect a new home?

Absolutely. There is no direct connection between the age of the house and the number of defects or problems. Newer homes often perform worse than older ones, depending on various conditions and build quality.

When do you need your house inspected?

The most popular and frequent type is a pre-purchase inspection. This inspection is typically conducted after a purchase contract is signed and is a part of conditional acceptance of the deal.

The next popular type is seller inspection or pre-listing inspection, conducted when you want to sell your home without unpleasant surprises.

Almost all new home buyers are ordering PDI (Pre-Delivery Inspection), and, consequently, one- and two-year warranty inspections of their new homes.

Maintenance inspection is also highly recommended for all home owners to help them maintain their home in a good working condition.

Is it necessary for me to participate in the process of Inspection?

There is no requirement for the customer to be present during the time of inspection; however, we highly recommend to participate and proactively ask questions to learn how your home works.  This knowledge is essential for further maintenance of the house and can be leveraged in negotiations with contractors when you decide to do further improvements and renovations.
