RESIDENTIAL INSPECTION

Know what you are buying before you commit!

A home inspection is a visual process where all of the items typically used within a home are tested and/or operated to verify proper operation or installation. Doors and windows are opened and closed, roofing materials inspected, air-conditioning and heating systems operated. The Inspector will operate all plumbing fixtures. All the while making notes on the condition and operation of the components tested. Upon completion a report will be distributed to you.
