A Home Inspection is a limited and visual examination of a home and it is intended to provide the consumer details about the condition of the home‘s systems and components.
The home inspector will inspect the following systems:
The home inspector will take notes and provide a detailed report including photos, videos and infographics detailing the findings. The report will also include recommendations.
A typical general home inspection for the average sized home will take 2-3 hours. This time is expected to change based on several factors which includes,the condition of the home‘s systems and components, the presence of features like garages, decks, etc.
A standard home inspection starts at $300. The size of the home and other associated features determines the final cost of the inspection. The cost covers a thorough evaluation of your home followed by a comprehensive digital report enhanced with photos, videos and pertinent information. We are also available for questions and concerns for as long as you own the home.

Yes. We recommend that potential home buyers get a home inspection on all properties and that includes new construction.
A home inspection on a new construction home may seem like overkill. However, an independent, private, unbiased home inspection can help uncover issues that may not otherwise be caught. Defects in new construction homes can occur due to installation errors, manufacturer defects and oversights.
Common issues found in new construction homes include water leaks, poor roof installation practices and missing components just to name a few. In short a home inspection will uncover any potential issues that need to be fixed prior to closing.
