What is Involved in a Home Inspection?

You found your dream home. Everything is perfect - from the granite counter tops to the crown moulding - you’re already decorating every room in your head.

But how do you know exactly what you’re buying?

During your home inspection we will perform a thorough investigation of the home’s HVAC system, roof, attic, floors, windows and doors, interior plumbing and electrical systems, foundation, structural compounds, and more.

We will then provide you with a comprehensive report detailing our findings. We'll also help you understand which problems are major, and which problems can be corrected inexpensively.

Who Usually Attends A Home Inspection?

When it comes to buying the home of your dreams, you won’t want anything to stand in your way. That’s why it's important to find a home inspector who is dependable, trustworthy, and properly certified. Make sure you're hiring a home inspector who has your best interests in mind.

We've been certified by the American Home Inspectors Training Institute (AHIT) and have the experience and knowledge to ensure that you're armed with the best information possible.

We also encourage our clients to be present for the inspection, where we'll educate and familiarize you with your new home.
