Home Inspections

Home inspections give you the opportunity to have the home thoroughly examined by a professional before you spend any money to purchase it. Paying for a home inspection can be well worth it both for peace of mind and the potential cost of trouble avoided.

What can you expect during your home inspection?

Your home inspector’s job is to protect your investment and find any potential issues with the home, including:

  • The roof
  • Plumbing
  • Electrical components
  • Appliances
  • Heating and air conditioning systems
  • Ventilation
  • Windows
  • The fireplace and chimney
  • The foundation

After your home inspection, the home inspector will provide you with a detailed report on the overall condition of the house, including outlining any potential issues and necessary, or recommended, repairs.
