Home Inspection (What to expect)

Please keep in mind, during the inspection we do not open walls and take things apart like you see on TV. The inspection is to help the purchaser understand their new home . In addition, we offer solutions to most defects found during the inspection, plus expected life span of different components of the home (Roof, Furnace, Air Conditioning, etc). There is no perfect home. During the inspection we also offer maintenance tips to help protect the investment for years to come.

In summary, the inspection is an education to help understand the present condition of the property and estimate what short term and long term expenses may arise.

Preparing for your Home Inspection (Purchaser)

Common Questions,

How long does a home inspection take? A typical inspection should take 2.5 to 4 hours to complete plus approximately 2 hours to write your report ( the client is not present when writing the report). This can vary, given the current condition and size of the home, the accessibility of mechanical systems, and so on. As a courtesy to sellers, we recommend that they be informed of the timeframe in a pre-purchase home inspection situation.

What do you look at? We inspect the major systems of the house. These include the Roof, Exterior, Structure, Electrical, Heating, Cooling, Plumbing, Insulation, and Interior. Our goal is to identify any existing major problems that would affect a typical buyer's decision to purchase. Detailed list.

What is included in the Standard inspection fee?

  • Home Inspection
  • Infrared scan
  • Visual Mould Inspection
  • Discounts from our sister companies
  • Free technical support for as long as you own your home
  • Same day computer generated PDF report with pictures and illustrations

 

Can I follow along? Definitely. We encourage you to attend. The house inspection is a valuable learning experience for most homebuyers.

Do I have to take notes? You don't have to take notes during the home inspection. We will document everything in a written report. It's much better to follow our home inspector through, listening to his comments to make sure you understand. It is also a great opportunity to ask questions and to clarify anything that confuses you.

Can I ask questions? Absolutely! You may want to bring some questions that you have regarding the home.

What should I wear? You should dress comfortably and for the weather. You won't have to climb on the roof or go into the attic, so your clothes won't get dirty.

Can I bring my family? We recommend that you not bring your family. This is a technical evaluation and you should focus on the home inspector's comments. The fewer distractions, the better.

Do I get a written report? When? You will receive a detailed, computer generated home inspection report. It would be unfair for us to ask you to remember all of the things that we cover during a home inspection. The report includes pictures, illustrations plus comments made by the home inspector and details on all the major systems of the home.  

If it's really bad, will you tell us not to buy the house? No. Our goal is to report on the condition of the house, indicating potential repairs and expenses. Ultimately, it is your decision as to whether or not you buy the house. The home inspection is very important but it is only one piece of the puzzle. Only you know all of the factors at play.

We hope this helps. Back to online booking?
