How long does a home inspection take? A typical inspection should take 2 to 3 hours to complete. This can vary given the current condition and size of the home, the accessibility of mechanical systems, and so on.
What do you look at? We inspect the major systems of the house. These include the Roof, Exterior, Structure, Electrical, Heating, Cooling, Plumbing, Insulation, and Interior. Our goal is to identify any existing major problems that would affect a typical buyer’s decision to purchase.
Can I follow along? Definitely. We encourage you to attend. The inspection is a valuable learning experience for most homebuyers.
Do I have to take notes? You don’t have to take notes during the inspection. We will document everything in a written report. It’s much better to follow the inspector through to make sure you understand. It’s also a great opportunity to ask questions and to clarify any concerns you may have with the home.
Can I ask questions? Absolutely! You may want to bring some questions that you have regarding the home. You should also feel free to ask questions as we go. If our comments or explanations are not clear, please ask for further explanation.
What should I wear? You should dress comfortably and be prepared to spend roughly 2 to 3 hours walking through the home.
