Frequently Asked Questions


Here are some important questions many new home owners ask:

What is a home inspection?

A home inspection is an objective visual examination of the physical structure and systems of a home, from roof to foundation. Think of a home inspection as a physical examination from its doctor. If we discover a problem, we may recommend further evaluation or remedies.


What’s included in my inspection?

Our standard home inspection summarizes the inspector’s findings following a visual inspection of the condition of the property. Your home inspector will look at the heating system, central air conditioning system (temperature permitting), interior plumbing and electrical systems; roof, attic, and visible insulation; walls, ceilings, floors, windows and doors; foundation, basement, and the visible structures of the home. Here’s a list of things included in our standard inspection.


Do you do mold or radon testing? Our inspectors are (IAC2) Certified from the International Association of Certified Indoor Air Consultants, Our Indoor air quality testing include Mold, Radon, Biologicals, Carbon Monoxide, Formaldehyde, Pesticides, Asbestos and Lead. See the complete list of environmental tests we perform.


What other optional tests should I consider?

Some optional tests can be conducted on all properties, while others depend on the age and components of the home. Here are the optional tests we offer:

  • Radon in Air

  • Radon in Water

  • Standard Well Water Quality Test

  • Function Flow Test

  • Lead in Water

  • Arsenic in Water

  • Uranium in Water

  • Wood Destroying Insects

How long does the inspection take?

Most average-sized homes take 1-2 hours to inspect. This can vary depending on the age and size of the home. If you have questions during the inspection, your inspector will always take time to answer then thoroughly. Also, if you order optional environmental tests, the inspection will take longer.


Do I have to be there?

It’s not necessary for you to be present, but we always recommend that you make time to join your inspector at some point during the inspection. This allows you to observe and ask questions. You will learn a lot about the condition of the home, how its systems work, and how to maintain them. Once you have gone over the property with your inspector, you will find the written report easier to understand.


How long do I have to wait for your report?

Our inspection report will be ready for you within 24 hours. The report will include checklists, detailed descriptions, and high-resolution digital photos of any issues your inspector has discovered.


What is your guarantee backing up your inspection?

We are confident that you’ll be satisfied with your inspection. If for any reason you’re not, just let your inspector know before the end of the inspection and you won’t pay a dime. Your satisfaction is 100% guaranteed!
