A building Inspection is a professional consulting service that determines the current state of major building systems based on a visual inspection of accessible features. It focuses on the performance of the home rather than cosmetic, code or design issues. Inspections are often performed during a real estate transaction but can be done at any time.
2. Why should a building inspector be used?
It is important to carry out a home inspection to avoid an expensive mistake when buying a property that requires major repairs. Asking a certified building inspector to conduct a thorough inspection of the potential property could be compared to underwriting an insurance policy against all potential operating costs.
3. Can buyers be present during the inspection?
Absolutely. We encourage guests to attend. Inspection is a personalized homeownership course.
4. What should I expect from the inspection of a building?
A building inspector will examine a home’s HVAC system, interior plumbing and electrical systems, roof, attic and floors, windows and doors, foundation, basement and structural elements, and then provide a written report with the results.
5. Can the inspector tell us if we should buy the building or not?
No, we provide you with the knowledge to make an informed decision. We understand that the state of the house is one of many pieces of the puzzle when buying a property.
6. How long can the inspection take?
A simple, medium-sized house takes about two and a half hours. Older, larger and more complex homes take longer.
7. When will we receive our inspector’s report?
The report writing process typically lasts about the same length as the inspection. The reports are sent to you within 48 hours of the inspection.
