What We Inspect

A home cannot fail an inspection. A professional home inspection gives you an independent, unbiased view of any problems and their solutions, so that you will have all the facts you need to make a sound, informed decision.

Depending on the size and condition of the home, a thorough home inspection will take no more than four hours, usually between 1½ hours and 3 hours. Ideally, you will accompany your inspector during the consultation so that you will have visual reinforcement of your written report.

We provide buyers, sellers, property owners and agents with important information essential to evaluating a property's condition. Through inspection, consultation and detailed reporting we review:
