We do inspections for the following types of clients:

  • Buyers
  • Sellers
  • Renovations 

If you decide to select us we will get to work and do the following:

  • Conduct the inspection, which will take 2.5-3.5 hours
  • We are comfortable doing the inspection with or without the client present, but would prefer for them to be there
  • Following the inspection a report will be provided in electronic form. It will be a minimum of 20-30 pages as per industry average

The report will also include any maintenance issues of different deficiencies that will require attention. This can include taking a picture of an air exchanger and explaining how to replace the air filters or how to perform other maintenance such as cleaning. 

We're available to answer questions about the inspection after the report is in hand. We don't believe the relationship ends once the report is delivered. Also something you won't find in a typical home inspection that is an added extra included in ours is the guidance in a fire safety evacuation plan and proper placement of fire extinguishers.
