No. Home inspectors are not code inspectors. Codes are constantly changing, and it would be difficult to keep up with the changes. However, we will always point out and report any systems, that while operating correctly, appear to be dated or installed incorrectly.
No. Due to safety concerns, we do not walk the roof. Instead, we inspect the roof from the ground with binoculars, and we use a drone for close-up visuals to accurately assess its condition.
Yes. We fully access the crawl space and inspect the complete structure, including plumbing and HVAC if they are present.
No. Because of ethical concerns, our home inspectors don’t offer repairs on any of the issues we discover.
Unless otherwise stated, reports will be emailed to you and your realtor within 24 hours!
The home inspection report is not a pass or fail designation. The report will simply state items or areas in need of attention and will advise the appropriate measures that could be taken for remediation.
Yes. We strongly recommend you attend the inspection with your agent. When we have completed the inspection, we will do a walk-through with you and explain what we have found. Being forewarned eliminates any unpleasant surprises when you receive the report and allows you to begin planning your next steps.
Ultimately, it depends on the size of the house, but an average inspection lasts 2 ½-3 hours and we always arrive 30 minutes early.
Absolutely. Once the inspection is booked, you will receive an email confirmation with the option to pay with a credit card and e-sign the inspection agreement. We also allow you to pay at the time of the inspection with credit card, check, or cash.
