The Inspection: Making an Informed Decision
In order to prepare the report, an inspector must conduct a visual inspection of the house. The inspection process typically takes several hours to complete. This may vary according to the size and condition of the home. 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:
· Framing (structure)
· Roof and attic
· Electrical system
· Plumbing system
· Heating and air conditioning systems
Additional items and systems unique to a particular home will also be inspected.
When the inspection is complete, we’ll tell you of any problems 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.

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