Inspection Overview

A home or building cannot fail an inspection. A professional inspection gives you an independent, unbiased view of any problems and their solutions, so that you will have all the facts you need to make a sound, informed decision.

Depending on the size and condition of the property, a thorough home inspection will take usually between 2-3 hours. Committed to consumer education, we urge you to be present at the inspection, a valuable educational experience during which you can ask questions on the spot and better understand our report. We offer maintenance tips, and share knowledge of the property that gives you control, confidence, and peace of mind about your decision and negotiations.

Our user-friendly reports are computer-generated, with digital photography, and a summary page with estimated repair costs. We provide the report by email no later than 24-48 hours from the time of the inspection. Our inspectors also provide a free telephone consultation after your inspection.
