What to Expect From Your Home Inspection

As a Certified Professional Inspector® trained by InterNACHI®, I adhere to a comprehensive Residential Standards of Practice.

This means that I’ll inspect the visible and accessible structure, systems and components of the home, inside and out, from the foundation to the roof, using the latest tools and technology.

Following my evaluation, I’ll compile my findings in an easy-to-read report, which will include detailed descriptions and high-resolution digital photos of any issues I’ve discovered. See an example report here.

I’ll email you your report within 24 hours, and my job isn’t finished until you understand everything in it.
