What's Inspected During a Home Inspection

home inspection passing or failing
A home (or commercial building) Cannot Pass or Fail an Inspection. A Professional Inspection gives you an
Independent, Unbiased View of any problems or issues that may need to be addressed, either before closing,
or afterwards. It will give you the facts you need to make a Sound, Informed Decision. Depending on the size
and condition of the home or building, a thorough inspection will usually take between 2 and 4 hours (or more) at the site.
Ideally, You Will Visit With Me at the end of the inspection so that you will have Visual Reinforcement of your written report.
Inspection reports are considered very seriously. Every inspection is a Complete and Thorough Analysis of all the
Major Systems and Components in, and concerning, the structure. Your inspection report includes a clear description
of the conditions that are observed. In addition, Detailed Photographs are included in Each Category that deems inclusion.
I am also available by e-mail or by phone for free consultation after your inspection, at any time.
You are welcome to e-mail or call me As Often As You Like, until your concerns are clearly addressed.

home inspection knowledge
Knowledge is Power
A Thorough Home Inspection can help you Buy or Sell, and Maintain your home with confidence.
As A Trained Professional,
I'll provide Invaluable Information to help turn you into a knowledgeable consumer.

A Knowledgeable Home Owner can identify problems in the making, and take preventive measures to
Avoid Costly Repairs.

Magnified home inspection
For Knowledgeable Home Buyers, in Both New and Older Homes, the best way to ensure that you are well informed
about the strengths and weaknesses of a property is to have me give you a Professional Home Inspection. I have
been trained to identify problem areas, both small and large, that may have been overlooked by the
previous owners, and to identify Which Issues should be Addressed Immediately, and which can wait.


Home For Sale
For Knowledgeable Home Sellers, whether you are selling your home on your own, or working with a Realtor
(EXTREMELY and HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!),
my Professional Home Inspection will help you understand conditions that a future buyer's inspector
may point out, and can prepare the property for Better Selling Conditions by making repairs.
All homes have strengths and weaknesses, so I can help you answer questions about my findings
which may present themselves at a later date during negotiations.


home inspection for warranty
Most builders provide a One-Year Warranty for New Construction. Generally during this period of time,
the buyer develops a "Punch List" of corrections for the contractor to repair under their warranty coverage.
Some defects Will Not Be Obvious to the Untrained Eye.
It is prudent to obtain my Professional Home Inspection Report of items that will most likely be
repaired by your builder --- At No Cost To You. You will be reassured knowing that potential
problems were addressed Before they grow into something that Could Cost You A Great Deal down the road.
