Whole House Inspection - Information:
For a typical Whole House Inspection, We are on-site for
2 1/2 to 4 hours. We inspect all the accessible systems of the home, including Crawlspace, Foundation, Framing, Siding, Roofing, Electrical, Plumbing, Windows, Doors, Finishes, Flashing, Ventilation, Insulation, Heating and Air conditioning, and more.
When finished with the inspection, we will take as much time as necessary to go over all of the findings with you.
A summary of any issues can be provided immediately, and a comprehensive report is usually emailed the following day.
Our Whole House Reports are "Narrative" (not check boxes) The report is "specific" to your building. Our reports take more time to produce, but are much easier to read and understand, and they include many digital photographs.
The typical cost of a Whole House Inspection is $375 for a 1300 sq ft home.
Pest and Dry-Rot (WDO) Reports are an additional $70 when done at the same time.
At no additional cost, we can offer general expertise about site characteristics, drainage or environmental concerns.
Jeff can also offer information about any building design or modifications you may be thinking about.
We understand that buying a home is a big step, so our goal is to make this experience both informative and enjoyable.
