What is a Home Inspection

The home buying process can be confusing and stressful. Not only do you need to consider things such as price and location, you also have to worry about whether the house itself has any problems that could become costly surprises down the road.

The Home Inspection is an unbiased, professional assessment of the condition of the house. It provides you an expert opinion and professional report on the condition of the physical structure and various systems within a house. Giving you peace of mind on what is likely the largest purchase you'll ever make.

In order to prepare the report, an inspector must conduct a visual inspection of the house. The inspection process typically depends upon the square footage and general condition of the structure. We strongly encourage you to accompany the inspector during the inspection. This will give you a chance to ask questions and become familiar with the systems of the home.

We will inspect all the structural elements and systems of the home. Items that will typically be included in an inspection are:

  1. Framing (structure)
  2. Roof and Attic
  3. Foundation
  4. Walls
  5. Electrical system
  6. Plumbing system
  7. Heating and Air conditioning systems
  8. Kitchen
  9. Bathrooms
  10. Exterior


Additional items and systems unique to a particular home can also be inspected.

When the inspection is complete, we will inform you of any issues that were discovered and discuss them with you. We will also tell you about any routine maintenance that should be performed, as well as answer any questions you may have. You'll also receive a full written report of the inspection on a compact USB drive with digital photos.

Our goal is to discover and inform you of anything we find that might affect your purchase decision.
