Should a new home be inspected?
YES! Not all new home construction is up to par. While there are many excellent contractors out there building solid homes, there are also contractors that cut corners to put a few extra dollars in their pocket. Hiring a professional home inspector will ensure insufficiencies are located and corrected before they become the buyers problem.
How long will a home inspection take?
Typically three hours. The exact time depends on the size, age, and current condition of the home. I make it a point to never rush my inspections. If I feel the need to spend more time on the property, I will.
Should I come to the inspection?
While it is not required, I always prefer the client to be present during an inspection. Not only does it give you the opportunity to familiarize yourself with the house and it's components. It will also give you a chance to ask questions, and see issues uncovered during the inspection in person. However, If you are unable to attend the inspection, all issues will be clearly documented in the report along with high quality images. I am available to answer questions seven days a week, and if necessary, I can return to the house at a later date to show you my findings in person.

Who pays for the home inspection?
When buying a new or existing home, the cost of inspection is always negotiable, but typically the purchaser pays the cost. The house you live in will be your biggest investment, so it is well worth the cost of a home inspection to ensure everything is as it should be.
Who gets the home inspection report?
The one who paid for the home to be inspected will receive the home inspection report. No one else will receive a report unless authorized by the client.
Can a home fail an inspection?
Not exactly. A home inspection report points out needed repairs, and safety hazards. It is not an appraisal or code inspection.
