Inspection Overview

A home cannot fail an inspection. A professional home inspection gives you an independent, unbiased view of any
problems and their solutions, so that you will have all the facts you need to make a sound, informed decision.

Depending on the size and condition of the home, a thorough home inspection will take no more than four hours,
usually between two and three hours. Ideally, you will accompany your inspector during the consultation, so that you
will have visual reinforcement of your written report.

We take our inspection reports seriously. Every inspection is a complete and thorough analysis of all the major
systems and components in the home. The report includes a clear description of what we've found with any problem
areas noted, so you can easily identify them. Our inspectors also provide a free telephone consultation after your
inspection.
