A whole-home inspection is most often ordered by those in the process of buying a home to insure any structural issues are disclosed before the close of a real estate sale.
Our whole-home inspection provides a visual inspection of the structural elements and mechanical systems of the home which are easily accessible. This usually includes the roof, heating and cooling systems, electrical systems, plumbing and fixtures, the attic, basements & foundations as well as the structure of decks and porches. The inspector will thoroughly survey the property and note if there are any visual limitations that may not allow them to inspect a certain area.
The goal of the pre-listing inspection is to give you an idea of any items that are currently in disrepair or that could become issues in the future so that you can make an educated decision about purchasing the home.
The extensive training our inspectors receive along with our experience give our inspectors insight about houses similar to yours, so they really know what to look for and can readily compare your house and its systems with other houses of similar age and condition. All homes have strong and weak points, and they are not always what they seem. The reporting systems that we have incorporated into our company allow you to gain the perspective and sound information you need to make better decisions.
Your home inspector will give you the overall “Big Picture” analysis of the house. If there is anything that requires further inspection or is of concern, we will recommend the appropriate professional, which may be an experienced engineer or a qualified licensed contractor or specialty tradesman with expertise analyzing that particular system or structural component.
