What Are Those Things to Be Inspected?

We carry out an all-round inspection of the entire home systems  ranging from the structure, roof, exterior, interior, electrical, plumbing,  as well as heating & air conditioning

Generally, a condo inspection is applied to only the inside of the house.  The owner of a condominium is usually not answerable for exterior parts of the walls of the condominium. Common components like the attic, roof, and external surfaces are often the duty of the condo association.  Please, establish contact with your condo association to obtain more information with regards to their certain policies.

The entirety of our inspections is in line with the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors Standards of Practice.

The duration of the majority of inspections is between 2 and 4 hours,  based on the size and condition of the property.  Very big abodes, older homes,  as well as abodes which have multiple HVAC systems usually require more time. 

Is there anything I should be aware of Prior to the Inspection?

To complete an inspection in no time, please collaborate with your home seller or Realtor to make sure that all utilities are in an on position and all aspects of the property can be assessed for inspection. Please note that we will not be able to inspect certain heating & air conditioning systems under specific conditions of weather as doing so can spoil components.

It is advisable for you to be present at the inspection so that you can take notes,  as well as ask questions about any part of the house.  We owe it a duty to ensure that you fully understand all the systems of the home, their conditions, plus any material deficiencies or recommended repairs.

When will a report be given to me?
