FAQ

 

How long does an inspection take?

Since our inspections are very detailed, they generally take approximately three to four hours to complete, excluding the time it takes to prepare the report. The actual time may vary due to the size, age and condition of the house, as well as the number of optional systems (ie: pool, spa, well, septic tank, etc.) a house has. When you schedule your inspection, we will do our best, based on our experience, to accurately estimate the time that your home inspection will take.In a nutshell: we don't rush our inspections.

 

How much does it cost to inspect the optional systems, like a pool, a sprinkler system, and built-in barbecue?

We will inspect the first optional system for FREE, For any of the homes' other optional systems you would like inspected we charge an additional $10 each. This includes Termite inspections, Crawlspaces, Pool/Spas, Wells, Septic systems, Outbuildings, or Built-in barbecues. Most other inspectors charge 3 to 7 times this rate.

 

Do you inspect condos and townhomes?

Yes we do. The pricing for these inspections is based on the same square footage pricing schedule as single family residences.

 

Should I be present during the inspection?

We recommend that you are present at the end of the inspection, however, you are welcome to be there from start to finish. We do realize that it is not always possible for you to be present due to other obligations. The inspection report that you receive, will be very detailed and your inspector will be available to answer any questions you might have.

 

How can you perform inspections at such a reduced price?

We have perfected the art of home inspection, which allows us to perform a high quality, efficient inspection in a realistic amount of time. Other ways that we keep our prices low, is by using high quality equipment, handheld devices and optimized inspection software.
