Full Home Inspection

Whenever you are buying or selling a home and want a thorough inspection of the home, this is the inspection. Starting with the roof, our inspectors work top to bottom of the home performing a visual inspection of each room and each system. At the end of the inspection our reports can exceed 50 pages. We identify existing problems, safety hazards and issues that may be working today but could fail soon. This inspection usually takes 3-4 hours on-site.

What Does a Full Home Inspection Consist of?

A full home inspection consists of two parts, a visual inspection of the exterior and a visual inspection of the interior. A fully certified, licensed and insured inspector will meet you at the inspection site and walk the property with you. While inspections can be done without you present, it is a good idea to be there at the end of the inspection so the inspector can show you exactly where problems are, or may occur.

The visual inspection covers:

  • Heating and Cooling Systems
  • Interior Plumbing
  • Electrical Systems
  • Roof and Attic areas
  • Plumbing
  • Visible Insulation
  • Walls, Ceilings and Floors
  • Windows and Doors
  • Foundation
  • Basement Areas
  • Exterior

Why Should I Get a Full Home Inspection?

Buying a home is a very big investment. There are so many parts to a home that even professionals can miss things. Our inspection process guides our expert slowly through the home so you can make an informed decision before you buy. If we do find problems we try to explain the problem so if you do decide to buy the home you can anticipate the repair and maintenance needs of the home.

Inspections are useful tools for potential home buyers but they don't cover everything. Licensed inspectors are looking for safety issues in homes. They don't check for local building code compliance, give appraisals of the value of a home and an inspection is not a guarantee that nothing will go wrong in the future. The inspection should be used as a way to gauge whether a home is reasonably priced and safe for the home buyer to move into. Inspections are also a prerequisite for most home insurance policies.

What If the Inspection Uncovers a Problem?

If the inspection uncovers a major issue with the home, an unstable foundation or severe leak in the piping that has caused structural damage, it can be a valid reason to void an offer on a home. This is only if the offer has been clearly made contingent upon the inspection results. If there are several minor issues that are uncovered, the home buyer can ask for the seller to fix them before the purchase, or ask for a reduction in the price to cover the cost of repairs.
