A Home Inspection is designed to better your odds of not purchasing a “Money Pit”. Unlike a 4-point inspection, a Home Inspection is recommended for any home regardless of how old the house might be. Having a home inspection done can help you resolve any home related issues before they get worse and become a costly repair further down the line. A home inspection plays a major role in your decision making process when purchasing a home. A home inspection is a limited visual examination of a home and it’s components to identify any possible deficiencies and/or potential safety hazards. Some of the things that are carefully looked over in a home inspection is the condition of the roof, exterior covering, windows and doors and the overall structure of the home to ensure it wont fall apart anytime soon.
Any items or issues that would be considered a safety hazard or a major defect will be addressed within the home inspection report.
We conduct home inspections on single-family and multi-family dwellings, condominiums and townhouses. Any items or issues that would be considered a safety hazard or a major defect will be addressed within the home inspection report. Any smaller items of concern found will also be addressed within the home inspection report. Often, the defects and items of concern can be inexpensive to fix by a qualified tradesmen. Most homes, even new construction homes may have small defects such as a roofing shingle not fully nailed into the roof deck. This can potentially cause a leak in the roof which can lead to bigger issues, however, this is an easy and generally inexpensive fix.
