FAQ.

General

What is a home inspection?

A general home inspection is a non-invasive, visual examination of the accessible areas of a residential property, which is designed to identify defects within specific systems and components defined by strict standards of practice that are both observed and deemed material by the inspector.

A home inspector is trained to be a detective in regard to the construction and working parts of a home..

Day of Inspection

Should I walk around the house with you?

Absolutely. I’m happy to explain everything I’m looking at. There will be times where I need to focus and evaluate, but feel free to tag along and ask questions.

Can my agent be there too?

Yes! Agents are encouraged to be there and be engaged so they can know what they’re writing up in your Repair Request Addendum.

The Report

What should I be looking for?

My reports have lots of images to help you recall what you’re looking at. I break down my reports into areas that are safety hazards and other recommended items to fix/ask for.

The summary will be the most helpful area of the report, right at the top.

Will there be recommendations on who to call?

With each defect I include which type of contractor you will need to search for to get quotes.

Follow-up

Can I call you if I have questions after the I get the report?

Absolutely. This is one of my favorite parts. Call, text or email.

Contractors

Can you give me some preferred contractors to call?

I have trusted contractors that I’ve worked with in the past that I can recommend. I still recommend you contact at least 3 in each area for quotes and do your own research.
