What We Inspect

 

A home inspection is simply an unbiased professional opinion of the condition of the property, at the time of the inspection.

A home inspector is similar to a family doctor. He knows a lot about your body but he isn't an "expert" on any one part. So if he finds something wrong, he will send you to an expert for further evaluation. A home inspector is the same way. He knows a lot about home systems but is not an expert in any one system. So if he finds a deficiency within your foundation, electrical, plumbing, roof, etc., he will direct you to seek further evaluation from an expert of the system in question.

Upon completion, you will receive a formal computer generated inspection report detailing the condition of each item inspected.
