What to Expect From Your Home Inspection

Whether you are buying, selling, or maintaining your home, we provide professional service from the first moment you call us. Our certified home inspectors will walk through your home with you.   And we will teach you as much as you want to learn.  We’ll do all of this while following the Standards of Practice for home inspectors. 

After we walk through the home together, we will explain the general condition of the home.  We will also go over the home inspection with your agent if they have any questions. You will know about any major issues that need to be addressed sooner than later. We will mention the items that you will want to keep an eye on for deferred maintenance. And all of this will be detailed in our easy-to-read report.  On top of that, your home inspection report will be delivered in HTML and/or PDF format. From that report, you will be able to see the items we discussed, with images for reference.
