What is a Home Inspection?

A residential home inspection is an in-depth observation of all aspects of the building, improvements, mechancial systems, and appliances. From roof to foundation, we cover it all.


FREE Consulting

As part of your home inspection, we include education on home ownership and the day-to-day operation of your home. This includes free consulting for as long as you own the home. We are glad to advise on matters such as repairs and additions. First-time home buyers can greatly benefit from our years of experience with many homeowners.


Why Inspect a Home?

The purchase of a home is probably the largest single investment you’ve ever made. Be prepared with a full understanding of the condition of the property and minimize suprises. As a home seller, you’ll want an opportunity to identify issues, perform repairs, and prepare your home for selling.


Houses fall apart five dollars at a time.

All homeowners need to know exactly what issues their home is likely to experience. Whether you are a new home buyer or the owner of an existing property, a professional home inspection can mean the difference between problems fixed now or expensive headaches down the road.

Why Get A Home Inspection?

Your home is probably the largest single investment you will ever make. To protect that investment and make sure you are making the right purchase, a home inspection is a valuable tool. Professional home inspection can help you learn about the property and any repairs needed, so you can minimize unpleasant surprises and difficulties. Your home inspection also shows you the positive aspects of a home, and the maintenance that will be necessary to keep it in good shape. After your inspection, you will be better informed to make decisions about the home: whether to buy it, whether to renovate it, or how to price it to sell.
