A professional home inspection gives you an independent, unbiased view of any home problems and their relative solutions so that you will have all the facts you need to make a sound, informed decision on your next home purchase or sale.
Depending on the size and condition of the home, a thorough home inspection should take no more than four hours, and usually lasts between an hour and a half and three hours. Ideally, you will accompany your inspector during the consultation so that you will have visual reinforcement of your written report provided by the inspector.
We write every inspection report as if it was for our own home. Every inspection is a complete and thorough analysis of all the major systems and components in the home including the roof, attics, interior, plumbing and fixtures, heating and cooling systems, electrical systems, basements, crawl spaces, and foundation, and exterior structures. The report includes a clear description of what we've found with any problem areas noted so you can easily identify and repair them. We also provide a free telephone consultation after your home inspection to answer any of your remaining questions.
A thorough home inspection will include the following:
|~ Roof (shingles, flashings, chimneys, vents, trim and gutters, drip edges, skylights, downspouts, and other visible roof related items)||~ Attics (insulation, ventilation, rafters, joists and collar ties, trusses, wiring attachments, and other visible related items)|
|~ Plumbing and Fixtures (water distribution system, hose bibs, sinks and faucets, bath/showers and toilets, sanitary system, and other plumbing system components)||~ Interior (floors and ceilings, walls, stairs (if applicable) and banisters, finishes, sinks, cabinets, shelving, built–in appliances, smoke detectors and safety–related items, and other visible interior–related components)|
|~ Heating and Cooling Systems (furnace, air cleaning parts, ductwork, air conditioner and lines, and other visible related HVAC components)||~ Electrical Systems (service entry and clearances, service panel, switches and outlets, visible wiring and junction boxes, grounding system, and other related electrical components)|
