What to Expect at the Inspection

Buying a home is one of the most significant purchase of your life.   It is our goal to ensure  that your inspection goes smoothly with the fewest possible last-minute surprises. Below please find a list of things you can do to help us provide the best possible inspection service.   

  •   Secure Your Pets  Please make sure that your pets are crated, caged, and secured so that they do not interfere with the inspection process. We do not want to get bitten, licked, scratched or  have your pet escape as a result of our inspection.
  •   Secure Your Children   A home inspection often involves accessing areas of your home that could be extremely dangerous to children. This includes your electrical panel, water heater, roof, attic, crawlspace, and more. The safety of your children is paramount, so please make sure that you either remove them from the premises or that you have an eye on them at all times if they must be there. 
  •  Move Items That Hinder Our Inspection  We cannot inspect what we cannot get to. Please remove all items that block access to doors, windows, rooms, electrical panels, water heaters, air conditioning systems, and plumbing.  
  • Unlock Doors & Gates  Again, we cannot inspect what we cannot get to. Please unlock all doors and gates so that we have FULL ACCESS to your premises. This does not include gun cabinets or safes. We respect all rooms that are considered off limits to us, but let us know about these rooms in advance if you can. 
  •  Be Available  Whether you are the  seller, the buyer, or the real estate agent, please make sure that we can get in touch with you. 
  •  Multi-Unit Re-Inspection  When inspecting multi-unit buildings if all units and garages, storage sheds (etc.) are not accessible at time of inspection, then there is a re-inspection charge of $150.00 to return to property to finish the inspection.  
  • Real Estate Agents  Secure all keys prior to scheduling of inspection. We do not have access to the lock-box.  Agents are to be present to open all areas for inspection.
