Pre-Purchase Inspections
Your inspector will perform a thorough visual inspection of the major systems and components of the home including the structure, roof, interior/exterior surfaces, and the plumbing, heating, cooling & electrical systems. He or she will also examine the lot grading, and any evidence or likelihood of basement dampness. Insulation and ventilation will also be evaluated.
Your inspector will show you, and explain to you, the various parts of the home and answer any questions you may have. He or she will point out areas of concern, and offer suggestions for improvement. Where substantial costs may be involved, your inspector can offer reasonable estimates of what those costs may be. Your inspector will create a written report, and present it to you with the Home Reference Book©.

New Home Construction
By having a new home inspected the opportunity exists to learn as much as you can about the house and how to look after it, before you buy it. The inspector can point out known problem areas and suggest maintenance practices which will reduce or eliminate most problems before they can start.
View a home inspection as a “seminar” on home ownership. It can be a value-added, informative experience – giving you a better understanding of your new home – and more security!
