Buying a home is most likely the largest investment you will ever make! As with most big decisions, it’s good to have some outside evaluation. A home inspector is like a general physician giving a checkup on your (prospective) house’s health. While no home inspector can predict the future or guarantee the absence of issues, a home inspection serves as an important tool in helping you make an informed decision about a property. Through the process, you will get an accurate picture of the home and be alerted to any pre-existing and/or impending problems you may have. It will also make you aware of areas where safety improvements could be made.
During a home inspection, we will visually inspect all of the accessible components and systems of the home and deliver you a comprehensive report, full of non-technical, easy to understand explanations and photos, to assist YOU in making a decision
A typical home inspection includes an evaluation of the following: foundation, grading, roof, attic, ventilation, HVAC equipment, electrical & plumbing systems, exterior & interior walls, floors & ceilings, attached garage, appliances etc.
See the picture below which illustrates many of the areas that are inspected.
