Yes, the potential buyer is always welcome to attend the inspection. During the inspection we may point out useful information that can help make the report easier to understand, in-turn, allowing you to make an informed buying decision. We may ask that you hold any questions you have until the inspection is complete.

Can the inspection report provide a pass or fail outcome?

A home cannot be passed or failed during inspection. Our job is to point out potential issues and deficiencies to help you make an informed decision about the purchase of the home being inspected.. We also cannot give appraisals or suggested value based on our findings.

Can you provide estimates or recommendations for repairs?

As a Certified Professional Home Inspector, we can help by providing recommendations for repairs but we cannot guarantee their work and are not able to give estimates. We recommend you call around for estimates.

Is the inspection invasive or non-invasive?

As Certified Professional Home Inspectors, our job is to perform a non-invasive, visual examination of the accessible areas of a residential property. The home inspection is based on the observations made on the date of the inspection, and not a prediction of future conditions. The home inspection will not reveal every issue that exists or ever could exist, but only those material defects observed on the date of the inspection.

Is Thermal Imaging included?

We are infrared certified and all home inspections include full thermal imaging as well as moisture detection.

Will the inspection include building code violations?

As Certified Professional Home Inspectors, we are able to determine home functionalities, which may or may not apply to building codes,. However we are not building code inspectors and therefor cannot provide a report based on building code violations.
