Frequently Asked Questions About Home Inspections


What is a home inspection?
A home inspection is a visual examination of the physical structure and systems of a home, from the roof to the foundation. A home inspection is limited to those items which are visible and accessible at the time of inspection.

Why get a home inspection?
To minimize surprises and difficulties, you’ll want to learn as much as you can about the home before you buy it. A home inspection may identify the need for repairs or builder oversights. After the inspection, you will know more about the home, which will allow you to make decisions with confidence.

If you are planning to sell your home, a home inspection can give you the opportunity to make repairs that will put the home in better selling condition.

What is included in a home inspection?
The standard home inspection report will cover: structural, electrical, HVAC, plumbing and built-in appliances. 

Being there for the home inspection?
While it’s not required that you be present for the home inspection, it is recommended. You will be able to observe the home inspection and ask questions as you learn about the condition of the home. 

Does a home pass or fail a home inspection?
No. A home inspection is an examination of the current condition of a home.  A home inspector will not pass or fail a home, but rather describe its physical condition and indicate what components and systems may need repairs. A home inspection is not a code inspection. A home inspection is limited to those items that are visible and accessible at the time of inspection.

What if problems are revealed on the home inspection report?
No home is perfect, even the newest home will have deficiencies. If the inspection report identifies problems, it doesn’t mean you should or shouldn’t buy the home, only that you will know in advance what to expect. If your budget is tight, or if you don’t want to become involved in future repair work, the information in the home inspection report will be important to you. 

What type of payments do you accept? 
We accept cash, checks, money orders, and credit cards
