Q: Why use our Services?
A: The purchase of a new home is one of the single most costly investments
that a family will make. Along with the extra stresses this will add, there
is also the fear factor of, "Will This Home Stand The Test of Time?" It
is also important to know what YOU, as the primary investor, are getting for
A home inspection is an excellent tool for you, the home buyer, to help determine
not only the condition of the home, but to also help foresee any immediate
unnecessary additional cost that may go unnoticed without the help of a home
inspection. Home inspections are not a prediction of future performance, but
can pinpoint existing problem areas.
Q: Why can't I have someone in my family who is very handy
or a contractor, inspect my new home?
A: This is the biggest mistake many potential new homeowners make when purchasing
a home. Although the person you are considering may be very skilled, they are
not trained or experienced at professional home inspections. Professional home
inspection is a unique skill like no other. Professional inspectors get what
we call an inspector's instinct for problems. That instinct takes extensive
training and lots of experience doing inspections to develop. Many contractors,
and other trades professionals hire a professional home inspector to inspect
their homes when they make a purchase.
