Our goal is to make sure our customers understand our findings. We will be happy to go over the report with you in person at the property or by phone if necessary. We don’t offer to fix what we find, and even though we know lots of contractors, we do not give out referrals. There’s plenty of sites on the web for that- Angie’s List, Home Advisors, etc.
We’re often asked “How long does the inspection take?” It’s hard to say since every home is different, but it usually takes 3 to 4 hours for a typical home. Larger homes and additional items like pools and spas may add to that, but rest assured, we’ll take the time necessary to provide a complete and comprehensive inspection.
Surprises often arise in the home buying process. What you pay for your home inspection shouldn’t be one of them. Our prices are competitive and we do our due diligence by asking the important questions upfront. When you get a quote from us, you can be confident there won’t be any unexpected additional charges. As with most things in life, you get what you pay for. There are inspection services that offer cheap inspections and work on quantity as opposed to quality. A few dollars saved upfront could cost thousands down the road. We use state of the art equipment including drones when necessary to see what others miss.
If at all possible, we highly recommend and encourage you be present during the inspection. If you can’t be present for the whole inspection, try to make it for the last 30 or 45 minutes.When the inspection is completed, we’ll go over the inspection report, walk the structure with you, answer any questions and address any concerns you might have at that time. You’ll get your report before we leave the property complete with all photos that were taken during the inspection. If you can’t make it or if for some unforeseen reason, we were unable to complete the report on site, we’ll email the report to you the evening of and be happy to discuss our findings with you at your convenience.
Technology changes and so do we. Our home inspectors do a minimum of 40 hours of continuing education each year providing us the best and most accurate information available.
We don’t just want to inspect this home, we want to inspect EVERY home you EVER purchase. Whether it’s a day, a week, a month or a year after your inspection, we’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have about your home.
