Home Buyer FAQ

How long have you been practicing in the home inspection profession and how many inspections have you completed?
We have been practicing for 27 years and have performed over 19,300 inspections.

If I’m buying a house that has a point of sale (truth-in-housing) inspection, do I need a buyer’s inspection?
A complete buyer’s inspection is a more comprehensive inspection. A buyer’s inspection goes into much greater detail and depth than a truth-in-housing report.

Do you offer to do repairs or improvements based on the inspection?
We do not offer any repairs as that could be perceived as a conflict of interest. We are members of the ASHI, the industry’s premier trade association, which prohibits soliciting or performing repair work.

Are you insured?
We carry both professional and general liability insurance. At your request, we can email copy of our insurance policies.

Can I attend the inspection?
We encourage you to attend the entire inspection. Although our report is comprehensive, easy to read and understand, you miss an opportunity to see your prospective home through the eyes of a professional.

Do you participate in continuing education programs to keep your expertise up to date?
My memberships and licenses require that I do a minimum of 20 hours of continuing education each year. In addition, I write and teach numerous home inspector courses each year.
