A good quality home inspection report begins with a thorough inspection of the property and all the systems and components of the interior and exterior.
All utilities should be turned on if possible. In this way all of the electrical, HVAC, appliances, plumbing systems can be properly inspected and checked for correct function. If its a building inspection, or a before drywall inspection all utilities may or may not need to be on. The average time it takes for a professional home inspection is 2 to 3 hours. The time it takes can be more or less depending on the condition of the home being inspected and the size. We can inspect a home within 2 days of your call usually and sometimes weekends.
We will be over under, in and all around the property to discover it's condition. In most cases we have to get on roofs, go into crawlspaces, open or remove the cover on electrical panels and review circuits, operate appliances, systems and enter attics and basements. Assistants may set up equipment, open or establish access and survey areas prior to inspection by master inspector. We will be thorough but careful while inspecting the home. After the home inspection and data is collected, we will re-tour the property with all parties to answer any questions. We will include all defects and deficiencies found during the property or home inspection.
Nothing will be left out of the Home inspection report, no matter how small or insignificant it is. If we discover any condition or have a concern about any item inspected during the home inspection we will let you decide what's important and what is not.
