Can a house fail inspection?
No. A professional home inspection is an examination of the current condition of your prospective
home. It is not an appraisal, which determines market value, or a municipal inspection, which verities
local code compliance. A home inspector, therefore, will not pass or fail a house, but rather describe
its physical condition and indicate what may need repair or replacement.
Do you have any affiliation with real estate agents?
No. We are not concerned with the sale of the property. Our mission is to make sure that the client
knows everything he or she needs to know about the property. I provide the information needed to
make a decision. That information explains only the existing conditions.
How long does your typical home inspection take?
A typical inspection requires roughly 2-5 hours to complete, but it is not uncommon for an inspection
to take longer.
Should a buyer/client be present during an inspection?
Yes, if possible. This gives the client an opportunity to see first hand what I am inspecting.
Should the seller be present during an inspection?
Preferably not. Having one's home scrutinized by a stranger, is an emotional situation for the seller.
If a broker is involved, it is a professional courtesy to arrange for the seller to be absent during the
inspection. If it is a sale by owner, some ground rules may need to be set to assure that no
adversarial confrontations occur.
Do you climb onto the roof?
If it is safe. Surfaces that are wet or contain snow or ice are obviously conditions that would prevent
climbing onto the roofing. Slate, metal, or wood shingles are not walked on due to their generally
fragile nature. WALKING ON ROOFS CAN CAUSE SERIOUS DAMAGE TO ASPHALT
SHINGLES ALSO. We can determine the condition of the exterior roof with binoculars from a ladder
at the eaves.
What kind of written report do you provide?
The report is prepared on my PC using Homexam or other Inspection Systems, This software is a
proprietary data system developed specifically for home inspectors and can be customized to meet
the personal style of the individual professional home inspector. My reports contain digital photos of
key deficiencies. With these valuable tools, the client is able to make an intelligent decision about the
How soon will I receive the report?
In most cases,the day after the inspection, by e-mail
Does your report include digital photos of visible defects?
Yes. We take photos of certain visible conditions for documentation, and to help the client visualize
the nature of the existing condition of the property.
What is your main objective or primary focus of the inspection?
Our primary goal and obligation is to obtain the best possible information about the existing condition
of the property and its major components and systems.
What additional services do you provide?
For additional fees We provide inspections for crawl spaces, unattached garages and out buildings
located on the same property, as well as visible inspections of pools & Spas, and radon testing Kits
for the client to collect data to send to an independent testing laboratory.
Do you recommend or furnish names of contractors who can perform repairs on the property?
No, but We will advise clients on how to find and select a prospective contractor or trades person.
How do you structure your fees?
The fee takes into account the listing price of the property; the size and age of the property; the
square feet of living space; the estimated time to inspect the property; and time required for preparing
and sending the report.
Are your fees competitive?
We charge a fee that is compatible with the amount of time devoted to the inspection, preparing the
report, and our expertise. The value of our fee is reflected in the extent of details provided during the
inspection; in the written report; and in the extensive knowledge and experience that I bring to the
How can I set up an appointment?
