A home inspection is an excellent
tool for you, the home buyer, to help determine not only the
condition of the home, but to also help foresee any immediate
unnecessary additional cost that may go unnoticed without the
help of a home inspection. Home inspections are not a prediction
of future performance, but can pinpoint existing problem areas.
Q: Why can't
I have someone in my family who is very handy or a contractor,
inspect my new home?
A: This is the
biggest mistake many potential new homeowners make when purchasing
a home. Although the person you are considering may be very
skilled, they are not trained or experienced at professional
home inspections. Professional home inspection is a unique
skill like no other. Professional inspectors get what we
call an inspector's instinct for problems. That instinct
takes extensive training and lots of experience doing inspections
to develop. Many contractors, and other trades professionals
hire a professional home inspector to inspect their homes
when they make a purchase.
Q: What if
I have questions after the inspection?
A: You can call
us and discuss all the aspects of your new home whenever
you like. Our service is a long-term investment.
Q: How do I
choose a Home Inspector?
A: Call up and
ask about their credentials and experience. If for some reason
you don't feel comfortable asking this of the inspector when
speaking with them on the phone then how will you feel asking
questions at the inspection. You must feel that the inspector
is qualified, experienced and attentive of your needs.
