The Scope of our Home Inspection

A home inspection is a professional consulting service that determines the present
condition (snap shot) of the home’s systems and components, based on a
comprehensve non-invasive visual inspection of accessible features. It focuses on
the performance of the home, difficiencies, safety concerns, potential title-related
concerns rather than cosmetic or design issues. Inspections are often performed
during a real estate transaction, but may be done anytime. We perform and include
a thermal imaging infrared scan at no charge. We also take and include approximately
150-300 photographs with narrative in the report to provide you with objective evidence
of the systems, components and their periperals.
