Know What You Are Buying & Give Yourself Peace of Mind...
As Home Inspectors we have a fiduciary responsibility to follow defined standards of protocol and document everything we observe. A home inspection typically run 2 to 4 hours in length. Although it is important to know there is no maximum time limit for the inspection. We are not going to give you our best three hours and then run off to the next inspection. We're committed to performing comprehensive inspections independent of how long it may take. Of course, the clients are welcome to attend. We're committed to not only identifying discrepancies that each property may have, but other important elements as well. These elements include maintenance-prone areas that warrant routine attention, the location of emergency shutoffs, and even some affordable improvements that are proven to reduce energy bills. The home inspection process is a key step to buying a home since often offers are contingent on its findings, so working with the right home inspector is important.
Whether you are buying, selling, building or staying in the property you own, a home inspection just makes good sense! Understanding the condition of the systems and components of a building is critical when it comes to purchase, repair and maintenance decisions.
