A home inspection typically takes between 2 to 3 hours, though this can sometimes depend on the age and condition of the home.
Can I come to the home inspection?
Yes! In fact, we encourage you to be there. We understand that your home is your biggest investment, and the home inspection is an opportunity for you to learn a lot about the home. If you have small children or pets, you may want to consider a sitter, if possible, as you will want to be very present for the inspection and allow the inspector to fully explain his findings.
Why do I need a home inspection?
A home inspection identifies problems in the making so that the home owner or home buyer can have any issues dealt with in a timely and affordable manner.
