Frequently Asked Questions

Here are a few of the most common questions we get asked.

A home inspection is an unbiased and non-invasive visual examination of the physical condition of a property. It is often, but not always connected to a real-estate transaction. However, with the growth of the industry, 95% of all real estate home transactions nowadays involve an inspection.
A home inspection will usually include an examination of the foundation and basement, roof, attic, heating and water systems, electrical and plumbing systems, as well as the general condition of the structure itself. As for a condo, it will include electrical, plumbing, heating, deck & other interior components of the unit, plus garage (and roof if access is permissible.) An inspector will look for poor construction practices and make note of any repairs that might be required or any general maintenance issues. Importantly, they will also make note of any fire and safety issues that need to be addressed.
First, you need to make an appointment either by phone or email. We highly recommend you make the appointment at least a day or two prior to your subject removal. Then notify your realtor and he or she will arrange with the other party for availability. On the day of the inspection, the inspector will arrive at the property and start the inspection. After the inspection is complete, the inspector will do a walk-through with you and explain the items that require attention. Then payment will be taken on site. And a detailed and thorough inspection report will be followed by an email to you on the same day as the inspection.
Although it is not required for clients to be present for the inspection, it is highly recommended. This is a great chance to learn more about your new home and ask questions to the professional about the condition of the home and how to maintain it.
The answer is No. A professional home inspection is done in an unbiased practice. Inspectors act as a general practitioner of a house and pin-point the problems to the buyers. Many defects are repairable on different levels and the decision belongs to the buyers.
On average, between two and four hours. We typically spend another one to three hours typing each report off-site.
