Other Types of Inspections

There are many other types of property inspections offered by home inspectors, depending on your needs:

  • Pre-Listing Inspections
  • Pre-Purchase Inspections
  • New Construction Inspections
  • Multi-unit Inspections
  • Annual Maintenance Checkup

Our inspections are limited to readily accessible and visible areas of the property. Because we are in someone else's home we generally will not be moving belongings or furniture as this can occasionally result in damage. Nor do we have the option of probing behind finished surfaces.

The purpose of the home inspection is to find major concerns that may involve safety and/or significant repair costs. Minor conditions are secondary to us and while we try to identify as many as reasonable some may be overlooked. The inspection is not intended as a guarantee that every risk will be eliminated.

We strongly encourage our clients to be present at the inspection. This way we can actually show you any concerns that we find. We can more appropriately explain the condition and provide you with a better understanding so that you can make informed decisions in your purchase negotiations.
