FAQs

Frequently asked questions

 

The purchase of a home is probably one of the single largest investments you will ever make. You should be as informed and educated as you possibly can while considering a home purchase, a home inspection can provide that education. Also, many mortgage lenders, recommend that a home inspection be performed.

There are four basic steps to the home inspection. First, the inspector arrives at the property, makes general introductions and both explains what is going to take place and asks about any special questions or requests. Next, while the inspection agreement is being reviewed, the inspector will make a quick circuit of the property to size up the scope of the inspection. Then, there will be an in-depth walk-through inspection with the client. This involves inspecting all visible areas and reviewing all accessible items and areas, including the heating system, central air conditioning system, interior plumbing and electrical systems, the roof, attic space and all visible insulation, the walls, ceilings, floors, doors, windows, basement or crawlspace area, and the foundation and all visible structural components.

An average home inspection will take between 2 and 3 hours, depending on the size of the house. Larger and more complex houses will take longer for the inspector to completely and accurately evaluate. Another factor that may affect the inspection time is the condition of the components at the property. If the house and appliances have not been properly maintained, the inspector may need additional time to explain to the buyer what options they may have to either maintain or replace the item.
