Frequently Asked Questions

What is a home inspection?
A home inspection is an objective visual examination of the physical structure and systems of a house, from the roof to the foundation.
What does a home inspection include?
The standard home inspector’s report will cover the condition of the home’s heating system; central air conditioning system (temperature permitting); interior plumbing and electrical systems; the roof, attic and visible insulation; walls, ceilings, floors, windows and doors; the foundation, basement and structural components.
Why do I need a home inspection?
Buying a home could be the largest single investment you will ever make. To minimize unpleasant surprises and unexpected difficulties, you’ll want to learn as much as you can about the newly constructed or existing house before you buy it. A home inspection may identify the need for major repairs or builder oversights, as well as the need for maintenance to keep it in good shape. After the inspection, you will know more about the house, which will allow you to make decisions with confidence.

“It has been my professional experience to have the opportunity to recommend Mike as the consummate professional in my 45 years of Real Estate marketing to navigate the difficult and apprehensive negotiations of a real estate transaction with high level clientele. Mike’s expertise in delivering the message good or bad relative to the condition of a buyers selection via a home inspection is unbelievable…bad news is delivered with a recommendation as to whom can resolve the problem and the good news is equally delivered with a “keep an eye out” for future anticipated concerns. My customers have always been appreciative of his open eyes to the present and what the future may entail. I highly recommend Mike for his honesty and integrity.”
