Frequentley Asked Questions (FAQ)

When do I call in the Home Inspector?

A home inspector is typically contacted right after the contract or purchase agreement has been signed, and is often available within a few days. However, before you sign, be sure that there is an inspection clause in the contract, making your purchase obligation contingent upon the findings of a professional home inspection. This clause should specify the terms to which both the buyer and seller are obligated.


What do you look at?

We inspect the major systems of the home. These include the roof, exterior, structure, electrical, heating, plumbing, insulation and interior and much more. All home inspections are entirely visual. No destructive actions are performed.


Can I follow along during the inspection?

We fully encourage you to attend. This is a valuable learning experience for most home buyers, sellers and owners. It's a great opportunity to ask questions about the condition of the home.


How long does an inspection usually take?

A typical home inspection takes between 2-3 hours. Some older and/or larger homes can take longer. As a courtesy to the client, an estimated time will be given once the inspection is arranged.


How much does an inspection cost?

The cost of a home inspection is $400.00. We offer a wide range of services please see our price list for detailed pricing.


Do you provide a written report?

Yes. As soon as your report is completed we email you a PDF copy which can be printed as many times as you like. If you do not have access to a printer we can print you a copy of your home inspection report at no extra cost.
