He did a great job and we enjoyed working with him. He answered all our questions and really took the time to make sure we understood everything we asked about.
We would definitely recommend him...”
Can I be there for the inspection?
Definitely. We prefer to go over the defects in person, before we deliver the report. That way communication is clear, and we can be there to answer any questions in person. (questions later are encouraged as well).
How long does a home inspection take?
Home inspections take between two and three hours for the standard size home. However, for homes above 5,000 square feet, older homes or homes with additions, the inspection may take longer.
What is included in a typical home inspection?
A home inspection is an objective visual examination of the physical structure and systems of a home, from the roof to the foundation. The standard home inspectors report will include an evaluation of the condition of the homes heating system, central air conditioning system, interior plumbing and electrical systems, the roof, attic, and visible structure. If problems are found, the inspector will refer you to the appropriate specialist or trades person for further evaluation.
What if the report reveals problems?
All homes (even new construction) have problems. Every problem has a solution. Solutions vary from a simple fix of the component to adjusting the purchase price. Having a home inspection allows the problem to be addressed before the sale closes.
What if mold is present?
Have it removed. More importantly, fix the conditions that are causing the mold. If you can see mold, you have a moisture problem. A large portion of our home inspections are focused on looking for moisture problems.

Severe weather can pose a flooding threat inside and outside your home. If you are planning to travel this holiday season, there are six important steps you can take before you leave to help ensure your home will be ready and welcoming when you return.” 1. Ask Someone to Check on the House While You’re Gone. Taking the simple step of asking a friend or family member to stop by while you’re gone may catch a potential problem before it becomes a disaster. 2. Check for leaks. Inspect pipes under kitchen and bathroom sinks, check your water heater for cracks or rust, and ensure that hoses connected to dishwashers, refrigerators, and washing machines are leak free. 3. Insulate exposed pipes. Insulating exposed pipes can help prevent them from freezing in cold climates, but wherever you live, your home needs constant air circulation to help prevent water damage and mold caused by condensation. Keep the HVAC system turned on and open the cupboard doors under sinks to promote airflow. 4. Turn Off the Main Water Valve. If you don’t already know where this is, this is a good time to find out – and then shut it off if your home will be unattended and vacant during your trip. 5. Clear Gutters and Downspouts of Debris. Clear out debris, dirt, leaves, and sticks and position downspouts to direct water at least ten feet away from the home to prevent flooding. 6. Inspect and Test the Sump Pump. If you have a sump pump, test it before you leave.
