Our Home Inspections are conducted according to the 'Standards of Practice' for the INTERNACHI (International Association of Certified Home Inspectors)
A professional home inspection is an impartial third-party visual evaluation of the physical structure, electrical, plumbing, heating, air conditioning, roofing, interior and exterior. Buying, selling, building or staying in the property you own, a property inspection just makes good sense! Understanding the condition of the systems and components of a building are critical when it comes to purchase, repair and maintenance decisions.
Upon completion, you will receive a formal written inspection report detailing the condition of each item inspected.
