Frequently asked questions

What does a home inspection involve?

  A: Home Inspections are largely defined by the four statements below:


  1. A home inspection is a thorough, in-depth visual examination of the structure and operating components of a home from top to bottom, inside and outside. 
  2. It is an analysis of the present physical condition of that structure and  those operating components.   
  3. The home inspection is a communication process in which the  inspector and client discuss the findings during the inspection   
  4. And, finally, the home inspection is a report on the findings of this examination and analysis.  

Q: How long does a home inspection take?

  A: Our home inspection will take anywhere from 2 to 4 hours, depending on the size and condition of the home.     

Q: Can a buyer be present for the inspection?

  A: We strongly encourage you to attend the inspection but it is not absolutely   necessary that you attend. Your home inspection is learning experience and a chance to gain   knowledge about your prospective new home. During the inspection,   we will identify and discuss areas of concern, and advise you on potential courses of action if they are necessary.   

Q: What about my report?

  A: You will be provided a computer-generated detailed report   that will be available from an online server via link sent by email, usually within 48 hours.
