A: A general home inspection is a non-invasive, visual examination of the accessible areas of a residential property, performed for a fee, which is designed to identify defects within specific systems and components of the home.
A: Not unless it is a requirement by your lender for approval of your mortgage. However, I would strongly recommend to always have an inspection performed. This is probably the biggest investment you will ever make, why not get it inspected to assure yourself that is a great investment.
A: I use a web based reporting software called Report Host. I deliver all my reports electronically. I also deliver all my reports within 24 hours after your home inspection has occurred. I know that some Home Inspectors deliver their report on sight, but I believe in taking a little extra time and care to go over the findings to give you the most reliable report possible. In the event that you are not able to receive the report electronically we can discuss an alternate delivery method. You can find a sample of my reports on the Customer Portal page.
A: We all know that life has a way of throwing us curve balls when we least expect it. Canceling or rescheduling is never a problem. I just ask for at least 24 to 48 hours notice. Cancellations the day of the inspection will be subject to a fee totaling half of the inspection fee. When your appointment was confirmed, that time was reserved for you. If you reschedule the day of the appointment no fee will be charged.
