Professionally trained home inspectors assist in maintaining the health of your home and a property inspection makes home maintenance easy by catching small problems before they become big surprises. Even the most experienced home owner typically lacks the knowledge and expertise of a qualified home inspector. In addition, most buyers find it difficult to remain completely objective and unemotional about the house they want to purchase. A Home Inspector conducts fair and impartial inspections and has no interest in whether you decide to buy or not.
The inspector will prepare a detailed report of the condition of your home so that you can plan for needed repairs and upgrades when it is time to make them. When purchasing a home, many home buyers have saved literally thousands of dollars through information provided by the home inspector. Home owners who have owned their homes for several years can even benefit from a home inspector’s knowledge of maintenance and repairs, and experience to avert potential problems. In many areas where disasters have occurred, homeowners have relied on inspectors to help them identify any damage resulting from storms, earthquakes, etc.
Length of Home Inspection.
A detailed home inspection usually takes two to three hours or longer, depending on the homes age and square footage. We recommend that you be present at your home inspection so that you can ask your inspector any questions and to look at any areas needing maintenance or repair.
First Year Anniversary Inspection
Newly constructed homes typically carry only a one-year builder’s warranty. Once that first year expires, who knows what kind of expensive, “surprise” repairs and expenses you might encounter. A First Year Anniversary Inspection, a detailed, visual evaluation of your home, can help you find out how your home has aged during its first year. Protect your new home and your investment by having a First Year Anniversary Inspection performed before your builder’s warranty expires.
