What Will the Inspection Cover?
Your home inspection will usually take 3 hours, depending on the size and condition of the home. You’re welcome to follow along as we inspect, but many of our clients prefer to arrive near the end of the inspection for a 30 minute “inspection review”, which is an opportunity for you to ask any questions you might have as we walk-through the house together reviewing anything we might have found. During the walk-through, we’ll discuss any major defects that need to be addressed and point out any items that may need future repair. We’ll also show you where turn on/off your water, electric, and gas.
