Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How long will the inspection take?

A home inspection is an excellent tool for you, the home buyer, to help determine not only the condition of the home, but to also help foresee any immediate unnecessary additional cost that may go unnoticed without the help of a home inspection. Home inspections are not a prediction of future performance, but can pinpoint existing problem areas.
Q: Why can’t I have someone in my family who is very handy, or a contractor, inspect my new home?
A: This is the biggest mistake many potential new homeowners make when purchasing a home. Although the person you are considering may be very skilled, they are not trained or experienced at professional home inspections. Professional home inspection is a unique skill like no other. Professional inspectors get what we call “an inspector’s instinct” for problems. That instinct takes extensive training and lots of experience doing inspections to develop. Many contractors, and other trades professionals, hire a professional home inspector to inspect their homes when they make a purchase.
Q: What if I have questions after the inspection?
A: You can call us and discuss questions of your new home whenever you like. We truly care about you, our customer, and would like to share our expertise with you.
