What does the home inspection process involve?

Think of a home inspection like a very thorough physical exam for your house, just like the one you get yearly from your doctor. Depending on the size of the home, the home inspection process will last between 2 - 3 hours. Our certified home inspector will thoroughly inspect every aspect of the home in order to prepare a detailed report including photographs. The areas inspected during the process include the following:

  • Roof system
  • Chimneys
  • Framing
  • Insulation and ventilation
  • Windows and doors
  • Plumbing system
  • Exterior shell
  • Electrical system
  • Garages
  • Fireplaces
  • Support structure
  • Foundations
  • Furnaces
  • Water Heaters
  • Central air conditioning
  • And more

Our certified home inspector is licensed, certified, and insured and goes beyond national requirements when conducting the inspection and preparing your report. When you receive your home inspection report from us, it will be full of photos along with detailed findings on every aspect of your home.

Your home inspection report will include the following:

  • Condition of every major component of the structure - from roof to basement
  • Any deficiencies found - minor or major
  • Any extensive expenditures necessary
  • Potential problems based on the current state of the home
  • Safety concerns
  • Home preservation tips
  • And more
