When buying a house in today’s market, many buyers tend to refuse a home inspection, the most important tool they have, to protect one of the biggest single investment of their lifetime. They believe that a home inspection can be done in an hour and by anyone. Contrary to their belief, our home inspections take 3 to 4 hours to complete. We start with the exterior components of the house, the landscaping and its effects on the foundation, as well, as per the siding, trim, exterior windows, the roof, chimney, gutters, downspouts and its ability to carry rainwater away from the foundation. Also, the driveway, patio, deck, porches and air conditioner compressor will be inspected. The interior walls, floors, ceiling, windows, the attic (sheathing, ventilation, insulation and framing), the basement (foundation soundness and evidence of moisture penetration), as well as per the structure of the house (beams, floor joists and columns) will be inspected. The plumbing system (fixtures, pipes, drains and the hot water tank), the electrical system (exterior entrance wire, service panel and all outlets and switches), the heating system (furnace and/or boiler) and all of its components will be inspected and tested. A computer generated, detailed report will be provided immediately following the inspection.
In addition, all our home inspections include a carbon monoxide testing at not additional cost to you.
Doing a home inspection with SAFE HOME INSPECTION is a wise decision whether you’re buying, selling or simply preserving the value of your home.
