What is a home inspection

Anatomy of an Inspection

A home inspection is a non-intrusive, visual examination of the home. During the home inspection we will look at the roof and ventilation, structure, electrical, plumbing, heating/cooling systems, appliances, and basement or crawlspace. Additional areas may also be inspected if requested. Home inspectors focus on safety, operation, and condition. When you're looking to buy a home, you want to know that you're in the best of hands. With more than three decades of experience, we can proudly say we've learned a thing or two about homes – and that knowledge helps you buy with confidence.
