What is a Professional Home Inspection

A Home Inspection is a non-invasive visual examination of a home, which is designed to identify the current condition of the dwelling. We examine any mechanical, structural, electrical, plumbing, or other essential systems or portions of the home, as identified and agreed to by the Client and Inspector, prior to or during the inspection process. A home Inspection is intended to assist in evaluation of the overall condition of the dwelling. The inspection is based on observation of the visible condition of the structure and its components on the date of the inspection and not the determination of future conditions, things can change, and they do

A Home Inspection will not reveal every problem that exists, some things are hidden, but only those material defects observed on the day of the inspection. A Material Defect is a problem with a residential real property or any portion of it that would have a significant adverse impact on the value of the property or that involves an unreasonable risk to people on the property. The fact that a structural element, system or subsystem is near, at, or beyond the end of the normal useful life of such a structural element, system or subsystem is not by itself a material defect

WHAT A HOME INSPECTION IS NOT: A Home Inspection is not an Appraisal, warranty, guarantee, recommendation to buy or not to buy. During an inspection, please keep in mind that if the water valve at the meter is shut off, we can’t turn it on, if any circuit breakers are shut off, we can’t turn them on, if gas valves are turned off to furnace or water heater we can’t turn them on. All systems need to be activated by home owner before inspection.
