FAQ’s


How long will the inspection last?

Most inspections last about 3 hours, give or take, depending on the condition of the home.  Larger homes take longer due to the size.

 

Do I have to be at the inspection?

Your presence is encouraged, but not required.  By being present, I am able to point out various issues at the site personally.  Also, by following me through the inspection, observing and asking questions, you will become more familiar with the property and receive some valuable advice and maintenance tips that you can make use of once you move into the home.  If you can not be there for the whole time, it would be beneficial to come at least the last half hour.  In that way, we can still do a walk-through, and I can point out various issues with the house.  If you can not be there at all, I can still do the inspection.  I would simply get in touch with you later to go over what I found.

 

What will the report look like?

The report will identify materials used in the construction of the house and issues related to them.  Each problem will be identified along with why it is significant.  Recommendations follow giving you the best route to correcting the issue.

 

When will I get the report?

You will receive a soft copy of the report the same day unless the inspection was completed late in the afternoon or evening.  A hard copy for the binder that you receive on the day of the inspection will be mail to you within a week.

 

What forms of payment do you accept?

We accept cash, check, money orders, and all major credit cards.  However, there is an additional $5 for credit cards.

 

Are you insured ?

Yes!  Your inspector carries both errors and omissions (E & O) insurance as well as general liability insurance.  The former covers you in case something is overlooked during the inspection.
