What does a home inspection consist of?
The home inspection is performed in accordance with the Standards of Practice the InterNational Association of Certified Home Inspectors, the large association of home inspectors in the world. The Standards of Practice can be viewed by clicking HERE. We perform a visual inspection in a good and workmanlike manner in order to tell you whether each item we inspect is performing the function for which it was intended or is in need of immediate repair. The inspection consists of examination of the physical (structural) components of the home, i.e. foundation, roof, attic; and mechanical components, i.e. electrical, plumbing, HVAC, appliances, etc.
What are the advantages of having an inspection before buying a home?
A thorough inspection of the home you are planning on purchasing will assure you that you are getting what you pay for. If any items or systems are in need of immediate repair, or if anything could adversely affect the value of the home, you may use your certified home inspection report as leverage towards negotiating the price of the home. We take pride in our procedure of inspection that assures quality and thoroughness. Our clients are pleased and confident that they know the condition of the home and its components inside and out. We strive to eliminate any potential surprises that may present themselves after closing.
Will you really buy back my home if you miss anything?
YES! Here is the fine print:
We'll pay you whatever price you paid for the home.

Do you provide radon inspections?
Yes. We use sophisticated state-of-the-art Radalink Aircat high tech radon detection equipment. Test results are analyzed and certified by industry leading Radalink Laboratories. The cost for Radon inspection is $140. Please visit our radon page.
Do you provide mold inspections?
Yes. The cost for visual mold screening inspection is $75. This does NOT include mold samples or air quality checks. Mold sample/lab tests can be very experiensive and are rarely needed. Typically, a visual screening is all that is necessary to identify the presence of mold and to identify the need for professional mitigation. You will be provided a separate mold report along with the rest of the inspection documents we provide for you.
Do you provide camera sewer inspections?
Yes. The cost for camera sewer inspection is $185.
How long does the inspection take?
A thorough inspection normally takes about three hours for a typical home up to 3000 S.F. The actual time will depend mostly on the size and condition of the home. If an assistant accompanies the inspector, the time may be considerably less.
Do you perform inspections on weekends?
Yes. While many inspectors choose to not work on the weekends, we are available for Saturday inspections; however, Sunday is reserved as a day of rest for worship and family.
Is the inspection pass/fail?
No. A home does not pass or fail an inspection. The job of the inspector is to thoroughly inspect a home and to report whether the physical (structural) and mechanical components of the home are performing the function for which they are intended. Most problems that occur within homes are due to negligence of basic home maintenance. Your certified inspector will be able to bring to your attention any issues that may adversely affect the value of the home.
Do you inspect new homes?
Yes. These days, homes are built quickly and too often the quality of the home is compromised. Frequently, even new homes are built that do not assure years of value and worry-free ownership. A certified home inspection minimizes the chance of any surprises that may appear after you have closed on your home. Your home is too important of an investment, let a certified inspector help set your mind at ease.
What forms of payment do you accept?
Most of our clients prefer to pay with check or cash. Your quoted fee for your services is the check/cash price. However, we also accept credit/debit, PayPal, money order, and Zelle. Credit/Debit/PayPal require 3% added to your total fee for all services.
