What Does a Home Inspector do?

A home inspector should provide you with the knowledge and education of the home you own, or the home you are buying and provide a comprehensive report detailing the home and his findings.


What Type of Reports Do You Supply?

Some inspectors will simply give you a report full of check boxes and a sentence here or there where they find a deficiency, or only a list of pictures and deficiencies.  We supply the most comprehensive and detailed narrative reports around.  Our Home Buyer Inspection reports are generally from 30 to 40 pages, but can vary based on how many, or few, issues we find.  The report discuss all aspects of the home, and include pictures with descriptions to better help you understand key points .  Click the button below for a sample home inspection report.
