The Key is Experience

The Home Inspectors was founded on 25 years of residential remodeling experience. A home inspector uses the five senses to compile clues about a property's condition. We know the major systems of a house, hands on, inside and out. Only a home inspector who has extensive time in the field can make an educated judgement on what signal major or minor problems.

The many items checked in an inspection include:

  • Slope and elevation of grounds
  • Walks, driveways, patios, and stoops
  • Gutters, flashing and downspouts
  • Garage door and its mechanisms
  • Exterior siding and roofing
  • Foundation (Interior and Exterior)
  • Basement and crawl space
  • Plumbing systems and fixtures
  • Chimneys and fire places
  • Heating and air conditioning
  • Electrical and wiring systems
  • Attic
  • Kitchen and bathrooms
  • Door and window mechanisms
  • Plaster and drywall
What To Expect:
Our inspections take 2 to 4 hours to complete depending on size, complexity, and age of the building. We are sensitive to the needs of first-time buyers. We take extra time to answer questions about the systems and conditions of your home. We enter your data into a permanent file and welcome your questions after you move in. Inspection is an evaluation of property defects and is not a contract, warranty or insurance.
What You Get:
A quickly scheduled appointment, usually within 48 hours. A documented report with over 250 checkpoints that eliminate guesswork & help you avoid costly mistakes. A comprehensive and searching inspection that includes checking inside, outside and underneath the house.
