I understand the importance of a home inspection and would be honored to serve you. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
Initial contact- we
will discuss your needs and mutually decide what services you need such as a home inspection with a radon test or water purity
test for example. Then I will ask for a description of the property for example how many rooms are there or if there are any
outbuildings or detached garages with electrical service that will be included in the inspections.
I will quote you a competitive price for my services.
You will be given a definition of
a home inspection. The scope of the inspection and the “standards of practice” used.
I will gather specific information about the property
(rooms, components, age, contact information, etc.) from you or the realtor or MLS information. With this information, I will
develop an accurate and custom TEMPLATE of the home on my hand held computer which promotes a thorough and customized report.
We will schedule an inspection date
that is convenient for you.

We start the inspection by examining the property in a logical and orderly method together. I believe in a “one-on-one”
approach with my clients.

I will craft the report during the course of the inspection.
After we have completed the inspection of the property, I will print the computer-generated
report and add it to your report presentation binder. We will then review the entire report which includes the report body
and itemized summary of important issues or recommendations.
A home cannot fail
an inspection. A professional home inspection gives you an independent, unbiased view of any problems and their solutions,
so that you will have all the facts you need to make a sound, informed decision.
We take our inspection reports seriously. Every inspection is a complete and
thorough analysis of all the major systems and components in the home. The report includes a clear description of what we've
found with any problem areas noted, so you can easily identify them. Our inspectors also provide a free telephone consultation
after your inspection.
