How much time is needed for the inspection?

The amount of time needed to do a good job on a home inspection is dependent on several factors. They include the condition of the structure, total square footage, age, and type of building. A condominium takes less time to inspect since most of the time the owners are not responsible for the exterior. An average inspection of a 2000 square foot home should take 3 hours.


How do I get the inspection report?

We give you all of our findings in a report format with a summary of items to be repaired or maintained. Our inspection reports are generated with a software package called HomeGauge. We believe this is the best, most comprehensive home inspection software in the industry. The reports will be quite detailed, loaded with pictures and recommendations for the client. Once the report is completed a .pdf copy will be e-mailed to the client and anyone else they choose. Many times our reports are more detailed than our competitors because we want our clients to understand as much as possible about the condition of their prospective purchase. The longer reports take more time to produce but we think it's worth it for our clients.  We will take the amount of time necessary to answer any questions about the report and to thoroughly explain the recommendations. A sample copy of one of our reports is included on this website.


Do I have to be there for the inspection?

It is not necessary for the client to be present during the inspection but it is highly recommended that they consider attending. This is a great opportunity for the inspector to take some time and explain the home's systems in layman's terms so the client will have a better understanding its operation.

 

When Should I Pay You?

Payment can be made at the time of the inspection when it is completed. I accept cash and checks. I do not accept credit cards at this time.


I know a lot about homes, why do I need an inspector?

The home inspector is required to be knowledgeable in all areas of a home's construction. That means for example, they can properly evaluate an electrical system, look for safety issues and workmanship defects. Consider your inspector as an investment in your new home. The fee for their service will be a small price to pay for the piece of mind that comes with truly knowing your home's actual condition.


How Much Do You Charge For An Inspection?

It depends on the size of the house, its age and the type of building. A condominium typically costs less to inspect if  the owner is not responsible for the outside of the building.
