A professional home inspection is a great tool to help with all phases of home ownership.  An objective thorough evaluation provides valuable information that will help you buy and sell with confidence and make the most of your home investment.

The Home Inspection Process 

Customer Request

We work with the customers, and realtors as appropriate, to determine the day and time of the inspection.  We also discuss what is typically included as part of a home inspection, discuss the scope of inspection for the specific property, and ask if customers have special concerns or areas requested to be inspected more closely. As part of our commitment to customer service, we invite customers to:

  • meet at the home at the end of the inspection to review the report summary while looking at the items discussed
  • review the report in detail and call with any questions
  • or be present for the inspection.

BASE PRICING* for Single Family Residential Home Inspections

  • Up to 2000 total square feet $300
  • 2001 to 2800 total square feet $325

  • Reinspections are typically FREE!

*Base Pricing includes inspection of the primary garage. Each inspection is different and the above pricing may be adjusted depending on the specific property or scope of work to be performed. Additional charges might be applied for additional garage(s) with their own heating/cooling and plumbing systems, inspections outside of the typically served area, etc. Please call to discuss pricing for larger properties, multiple family units, or other scenarios and services.

Pre-Inspection Agreement

A Pre-Inspection Agreement is required to be signed by the customer prior to performing the home inspection.  This provides customers with important information about what is, and is not, included in the inspection and acts as the contract of work to be performed.  Additionally, it is required by many state licensing boards and insurance companies.  This helps to protect both customers and inspectors, which in turn helps keep inspection costs low.

Home Inspection

We conduct comprehensive inspections that include visual evaluation of the major components of a home.  This includes opening and closing doors and windows, inspecting roofing materials, and operating air-conditioning and heating systems as conditions permit.  The Inspector will also fill the sinks and tub(s), run the shower(s), and flush the toilets. While doing so, the Inspector creates a detailed, understandable report indicating the observed conditions of the following items:

  • Roof, Chimney, Flashing, Valleys
  • Gutters, Downspouts, Drainage
  • Driveways, Garages, Landscaping
  • Patios, Decks, Porches, Stairs

Finally, we present the findings and a copy of the Home Inspection Report highlighting easy-to-read details on:
  • The condition of every major component from the roof to the basement
  • Major and minor deficiencies
  • Any major expenditures necessary
  • What to watch out for
  • Helpful home preservation tips

  • And much more

We will review the detailed report with you to make sure you understand everything included and answer any remaining questions.  Our commitment to high quality personal service does not end with the report!  Customers are encouraged to call with any follow-up questions!

Home Inspection Benefits for Buyers, Sellers, and Owners

Buyer Benefits

Buyers want to know that a home is safe as well as structurally and mechanically sound.  They want to know that everything is working correctly and if there are signs of potential failure.  Our inspection and explanations will help identify these items, avoid surprises, and plan for upcoming maintenance costs.  Thus, a home inspection provides a solid foundation of knowledge to use when making a buying decision.

Seller Benefits

Sellers need to make full disclosure, as part of the real estate transfer process, of any and all deficiencies.  Knowing what, if any, repairs to make can help you prepare and market your home most effectively.  This will help avoid surprises and make negotiations go more smoothly.  Thus, a pre-sale professional home inspection can help you sell your home faster at the highest possible price.

Owner Benefits

Owners want to improve the enjoyment and value of their home while protecting their investment.  An inspection can help identify opportunities such as window draft reduction or improved insulation to help make the home more comfortable and economical.  A routine home inspection, such as every two years, can also help find simple maintenance actions to be taken now to help prevent large expenses in the future.  The pricing for this Review Inspection is typically $100 for 2 years of service.
