Inspection Overview

A home cannot “fail” an inspection. A professional home inspection gives you an independent, unbiased view of any problems and their solutions, so that you will have all the facts you need to make an informed decision.  “We Provide Our Clients A True Peace Of Mind”

Depending on the size and condition of the home, a thorough home inspection will take no more than four hours, usually completed in three hours or less.  Ideally, you will accompany us during the inspection, so you will have visual reference for your written report.

We take our inspection reports seriously. Every inspection is a complete and thorough analysis of all the major systems and components in the home. The report includes a clear description of what we’ve found with any problem areas noted, with digital photos, so you can easily identify them.  We also provide unlimited telephone consultation after your inspection should you have any questions.
