How long does the home inspection take?
A typical inspection should take 3 to 5 hours to complete. This can vary, given the current condition and size of the home, the accessibility of mechanical systems, and so on. As a courtesy to sellers, we recommend that they be informed of the timeframe in a pre-purchase home inspection situation.
What do you examine?
We inspect the major systems of the house. These include the Roof, Exterior, Structure, Electrical, Heating, Cooling, Plumbing, Insulation, and Interior. Our goal is to identify any existing major problems that would affect a typical buyer's decision to purchase.
How much does an inspection cost?
Our typical fee for an inspection is basic on square footage of the property. However, some factors will affect the fee. If you are comparing home inspection firms, the fee charged should not be the deciding factor unless the level of service offered is identical. Remember, you are considering a major purchase and your choice of home inspector should be based on getting the best value, not just the best price.
Do I have to take notes?
Yes, You are welcome to take notes, but you don't have to take notes during the inspection. We will document everything in a written report. It's much better the listen to the inspectors comments to make sure you understand. It's also a great opportunity to ask questions and to clarify anything that confuses you.
What is included in the fee?

Comprehensive written home inspection report.

Can I ask questions?
Absolutely Yes! You may want to bring some questions that you have regarding the home. You should also feel free to stop the inspector and ask questions. If the inspector's comments or explanations are not clear, please ask for clarification.
What should I wear?
You should dress comfortably and be prepared to spend roughly several hours walking through the home with the inspector. Please do not follow the inspector on the roof or any area that is unsafe. You won't have to climb on the roof or go into the attic, so your clothes won't get dirty.
Can I bring my family?
We recommend that you not bring your family; this is a technical evaluation, and you will be interacting with the inspector — the fewer distractions, the better.
Do I get a written report? When?
You do receive a written report or email. It would be unfair to ask you to remember all of the things we cover during a home inspection. The report includes a summary of the condition of the home and details on all the major systems of the home. It is delivered within 48 hours after the inspection. All labs reports take longer and will be delivered when available from the lab.
If it's really bad, will you tell us not to buy the house?
No. Our goal is to report on the condition of the house, indicating potential repairs and expenses. Ultimately, it is your decision as to whether or not you buy the house. The home inspection is very important but it is only one piece of the puzzle. Only you know all of the factors at play. Your real estate professional can help you here.

A home inspection is performed by a licensed inspector. A home inspection is a limited, comprehensive visual exam and non-invasive examination of the condition of a home, often in connection with the sale of that home.

What is radon gas and why should I have my home tested for it?
Radon is a radioactive gas that is released in the air after the natural breakdown of uranium in soil, rock, and water. It is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the US according to the Surgeon General. While radon can't be seen, smelled or tasted, exposure usually occurs at home, where you spend most of your time. Radon testing is the only way to know if your home and family are at risk. All wells should be test yearly because over 90% of well water has radon in the water.
