The Home Inspection Need
The purchase of a home is probably the largest single investment you will ever make. You should know exactly what to expect - both indoors and out - in terms of repair and maintenance and their costs. A fresh coat of paint could be hiding serious structural problems. Water marks in the basement may indicate a chronic seepage problem or may simply be the result of single incident. The home inspector interprets these and other clues, then present his profession opinion as to the condition of the property before you buy so you can avoid unpleasant surprises afterwards.
The Home Inspection Facts
A professional home inspection is simply an examination into the current condition of your prospective home. It is not an appraisal or a Municipal Code inspection. A home inspector, therefore, will not pass or fail a house, but will simply describe its condition and indicate which items will be in need of immediate or near future, major repairs or replacement.
Remember, any home generally needs minor repairs or maintenance on an ongoing basis. If the inspector finds minor problems in a house it doesn't necessarily mean you shouldn't buy it, only that you will know in advance what type of repairs to anticipate.
The Home Inspection Report
A complete home inspection includes a visual examination of the house from top to bottom.
The inspector examines the heating system, the central air conditions system(when temperature permits), the interior plumbing and electrical systems, the roof and visible insulation, walls, ceilings, floors, windows and doors, the foundation, basement and visible structure. An extensive written report is issued at the completion of the inspection. This allows you to immediately review our finding with concerned parties.
Additional services such as radon testing are available upon request. We can provide information and cost of additional testing and inspections should you deem it necessary.
