No. A professional home inspector does not issue a pass or fail grade on a home. A professional home inspection is an examination of the current condition of the prospective home. The home inspector will describe the home’s physical condition and indicate what may need repair or replacement.

After the Inspection, our inspector will provide you with a computer-generated report, printed in color, including a digital photo of the house or, depending, at least within 24 hours of the Inspection.

After the inspection, the inspector will print an on-site, computer-generated report, which will be 15 to 20 pages long. The Property Inspection Report will give easy-to-read details on the following: • The general condition of the home from the roof to the basement.

  • How things work.
  • Major and minor deficiencies.
  • Suggestions to remedy deficiencies.
  • Any major expenditure coming up?
  • What to watch out for.

Then, the inspector will review the report with you to ensure you understand everything.

You generally have seven to ten days after signing the contract to get a home inspection. Please call us when you sign a contract on the prospective home. It will ensure you can complete the inspection at the most convenient time. When you’re ready to schedule your inspection, call us. We have three full-time schedulers on staff to assist you, and it’s no problem if you call on the weekend. One of our schedulers is on call each weekend. Leave a message on our office phone; the scheduler “on-call” will get back to you, generally the same day you called.

The price of the inspection varies based on the size of the home. Larger homes take longer to inspect. Hence, the fees for these homes are greater than those for a smaller home. However, don’t let the inspection price determine whether you get a home inspection or the selection of your home inspector. The knowledge gained from an inspection is well worth the cost, and the lowest-priced inspector is not necessarily a bargain. The inspector’s qualifications, experience, training, and professional affiliations should be the most important consideration.

After the inspection, payment is due. We accept personal checks, cash, and all major credit cards. If you cannot attend the inspection, we ask that you furnish us with your credit card information when scheduling your appointment. Your card will be charged once the inspection is complete.

A thorough Inspection covers everything from the roof to the foundation. Items that are included in the Inspection are as follows:

  • Attic
  • Insulation
  • Ventilation
  • Roof & Flashings
  • Gutters
  • Basement
  • Crawlspace
  • Foundation
  • Grading
  • Retaining Walls
  • Siding & Trim
  • Driveways & Walks • Ceilings
  • Floors
  • Walls
  • Doors & Windows
  • Chimney
  • Fireplace
  • Major Appliances
  • Electrical System
  • Water Heater
  • Plumbing System
  • Air Conditioning
  • Heating

Most Inspections take about three to four hours. These times may vary depending on the size, age & condition of the home.

We recommend that you be present at the inspection site from start to finish.

The purchase of a new home is one of the single most costly investments a family will make. Along with the extra stresses this will add, there is also the fear factor of “Will This Home Stand The Test of Time?” It is also important to know what YOU, as the primary investor, are getting for your money. A home inspection is an excellent tool for you, the home buyer, to help determine not only the home’s condition but also to help foresee any immediate unnecessary additional cost that may go unnoticed without the help of a home inspection. Home inspections do not predict future performance but can pinpoint existing problem areas.

It is the biggest mistake many potential new homeowners make when purchasing a home. Although the person you are considering may be very skilled, they must be trained or experienced in professional home inspections. Professional home inspection is a unique skill like no other. Professional inspectors get what we call an inspector’s instinct for problems. That instinct takes extensive training and lots of experience doing inspections to develop. Many contractors and other trades professionals hire a home inspector to inspect their homes when they purchase.

You can call us and discuss your new home’s aspects whenever you like. Our service is a long-term investment.
