What We Inspect
A home inspection is simply an unbiased professional opinion of the condition of the property, at the time of the inspection.
A home inspector is similar to a family doctor. He knows a lot about your body but he isn't an "expert" on any one part. So if he finds something wrong, he will send you to an expert for further evaluation. A home inspector is the same way. He knows a lot about home systems but is not an expert in any one system. So if he finds a deficiency within your foundation, electrical, plumbing, roof, etc., he will direct you to seek further evaluation from an expert of the system in question.
Upon completion of the inspection, you will receive a formal, computer-generated inspection report detailing the condition of each of the items inspected.
