Buying a home is one of the biggest investments you will ever make. Before you buy, you should have a home inspection to avoid potentially costly repairs that would otherwise go undetected until they become even more costly. This is our typical home inspection that catches common defects so you understand the investment you’re making.
Some homeowners want to make repairs to their house before they put it on the market and will make repairs using their inspection report as a baseline reference. Please understand that most buyers will still want to perform their own inspection even if the seller has already had an inspection done.

No matter where you are in America, your home may be exposed to dangerous radon gas. Radon is a natural, radioactive gas which is produced when uranium in the Earth’s crust decays, and turns into radium. While at home test kits are available, hiring a professional such as a home inspector will often provide you with better results, as they use higher-quality test kits, and have the expertise to test for Radon correctly.

Day of Inspection
Should I walk around the house with you?
Absolutely. I’m happy to explain everything I’m looking at. There will be times where I need to focus and evaluate, but feel free to tag along and ask questions.
Can my agent be there too?
Yes! Agents are encouraged to be there and be engaged so they can know what they’re writing up in your Repair Request Addendum.
What should I be looking for?
My reports have lots of images to help you recall what you’re looking at. I break down my reports into areas that are safety hazards and other recommended items to fix/ask for.
The summary will be the most helpful area of the report, right at the top. Take a look at a sample report.
Will there be recommendations on who to call?
With each defect I include which type of contractor you will need to search for to get quotes.
Can I call you if I have questions after the I get the report?
Absolutely. This is one of my favorite parts. Call, text or email.
Can you give me some preferred contractors to call?
I have a few contractors that I’ve worked with in the past that I can recommend. I still recommend you contact at least 3 in each area for quotes and do your own research.
