In real estate transactions, home buyers like to be sure they have an accurate picture of what they are getting before taking possession of a home. This is certainly understandable since this is the largest purchase most people will ever make in their life. Sellers may also want to find out about any hidden problems with their home. This could prevent any last-minute surprises uncovered by a buyer’s home inspector that might complicate or lose the sale.
Put simply, a home inspection is when a highly trained and qualified inspector performs a visual examination of the structure and major systems of a home. The inspector will check things such as the structure, roof, plumbing system and fixtures, the HVAC system, electric, boiler, site, exterior and interior. This is not an exhaustive list, but it gives a good idea of the types of things they examine. After completing the inspection, the inspector writes a report on the condition of all the systems and structural elements they’ve checked and submits it to whoever requested the inspection.

In the course of a regular home inspection, our inspector may discover issues that require an additional specialized inspection. If signs of wood damage are spotted, they might recommend a wood-destroying insect inspection or a well flow inspection if the home sources its water from a well.
If you’re the homeowner, you need to make sure the inspector has access to the attic to inspect it and the roof. Also, make sure the circuit breaker box is not blocked by anything. They’ll need easy access to your HVAC system as well. If you’re the buyer, you should arrange to accompany the inspector since it’ll be a good chance to see, firsthand, where various components are in the house.
After completing your inspection, we give you a detailed report that lets you know if there are any deficiencies and how bad they are. What you do with this information is up to you. Depending on whether any issues were uncovered, and their severity, a home inspection report can be a valuable tool to help you make a more informed decision.
A home inspection will take approximately two to three hours.
