If you are like most people, your home is the biggest investment you will ever make. This is why you need a professional home inspection before you buy. We always say “every house has issues, and every issue has a path to resolution.” The discovery of defects is a normal part of every home inspection. Where we differ from other home inspection companies is that we work with you during the inspection to discuss our findings so that you’ll be confident addressing any defects in a way that works for you. Some folks love older houses in need of TLC, and others want something more turnkey. As a client, you and your needs are our main focus. Our inspectors undergo six months of training so that they can communicate their findings in a way that is thorough, patient, professional and thoughtful. Choosing the wrong inspection company could be worse that getting no inspection at all.
