What is a home inspection?
A home inspection is an objective visual examination of the physical structure and systems of a home, from roof to foundation and everything in-between. The inspector will make recommendations based on findings and provide you with insight and knowledge to make an informed buying decision.
Why is a home inspection important?
Home Buyers: Most buyers find it difficult to remain objective and unemotional about the house they really want, and this may affect their judgment. To obtain the most accurate information about the condition of a home, always get an impartial third-party opinion from an expert in the field of home inspection.
Home Sellers: Why wait for a buyer's home inspection to uncover hidden problems after you have already accepted an offer? This could cost you thousands in a lower negotiated selling price. More often sellers are choosing to have a thorough home inspection when listing their home to help identify critical areas of concern up front. This will help you to decide whether to perform repairs or disclose the concerns during negotiations.
What does a home inspection include?
An inspection report will review the condition of the home's heating system, central air-conditioning system (temperature permitting), interior plumbing and electrical systems, as well as the roof, attic, and visible insulation; walls, ceilings, floors, windows and doors; the foundation, basement, and visible structure. Please see additional information under what is included on the home page.
Why hire a professional inspector rather than reviewing the property myself?
Even the most experienced homeowner lacks the knowledge and expertise of a professional home inspector. A professional home inspector has the experience, depth of knowledge and training to make an unbiased and informed report of the condition of a property. An inspector is familiar with the many elements of home construction, their proper installation and maintenance. An inspector understands how the home's systems and components are intended to function together, as well as how and why they fail. He knows what to look for and is uniquely suited to interpret what his findings reveal about the condition of the property.
Should I attend the home inspection?
Though not mandatory we encourage you to attend your inspection. This allows you to observe the inspector, ask questions as you learn about the condition of the home, how its systems work, and how to maintain them. After you have seen the property with the inspector, you will find the written report easier to understand.
What will it cost?
Inspection fees for a typical single-family home vary by size and age of the home. Additionally, services such as radon testing may be warranted, depending upon the individual property.
