ABOUT INSPECTIONS All inspections are conducted according to the standards of practice of the California RealEstate Inspection Association. A home inspection is an impartial third party visual examination of the structure and systems of a home, and usually takes about 2 to 3 hours. You will learn about the overall condition of the property, and about the need for any major repairs. You will receive an expert's advice about the feasibility of making upgrades and renovations.
WHAT WE INSPECT We inspect the central heating and cooling systems, the interior plumbing and electrical systems, built-in kitchen appliances, walls, ceilings, floors, insulation, ventilation, roofing, siding and foundation. Also examined are the windows, doors, weather stripping, fences and gates. Some of the items that are not inspected are intercoms, septic systems, elevators, home security systems or any other item that should be checked by an engineer or other specialist or licensed professional.
YOU SHOULD ATTEND THE INSPECTION While this may not always be possible, it is a good idea to get the first hand information that attending the inspection can provide. However, if you cannot be there, we will gladly conduct the inspection and email the report to you.
WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING
He is extremely thorough and trustworthy. He has so much knowledge
and experience that is really helpful when it comes to purchasing a home.
Even if it is months after the inspection, he is always willing to help answer
any questions. Reports are always emailed the same day as the inspection
and are easy to read with photographs. Thank you Tim!
Tim was just great!
Cindy & Mike G--Home Buyers
Tim was very professional and thorough in the inspection of the home
we are purchasing. He truly went above and beyond in his inspection.
He not only identified current issues/problems with the home, but also
identified any areas he felt might be a source of an issue in the future.
He also took the time to answer any and all questions we had regarding
the condition of the home, which as a result made us feel much more at
ease with purchasing it. The report we received was very detailed and
included thorough explanations of the existinfg problems, along with
corresponding pictures. If you are in need of a property inspector,
we definately recommend him.
