What is Included on Our Home Inspections

Our home inspections are designed to be thorough, very thorough. We often get asked what is covered on our home inspections though.

The answer is a long one. We inspect hundreds of items and components on every home inspection, and take into consideration thousands of possible scenarios. We inspect your structure, roof, plumbing, electrical, HVAC, doors, windows, decks, porches, and so much more.

We take our time on our home inspections and make sure that we not only thoroughly inspect your home, but also make sure that you understand all the information.

The purchase of your home is likely the single largest investment you will ever make.Beyond the safety and security of a home, it also provides long term financial security.  When my family and I were moving into the first home we purchased, my Dad said, “Take care of your home and it will take care of you.” Never has a more true statement been made.

It begins prior to closing by hiring a licensed home inspector to provide you a written report based on visual conditions and the inspectors knowledge, education, skills, and ability. Different inspectors have varying qualifications, equipment, experience, reporting methods, and pricing. Ultimately, a thorough home inspection depends heavily on the individual inspector’s own effort.
