The Home Inspection Process
Many of our clients want to know in advance what the property inspection covers and how the process works.

Each home inspection is a thorough in-depth visual examination of the structure and operating components of the home performed by a trained and certified professional. A property inspection will take 2 to 4 hours to complete. You are invited to follow the inspector step by thorough step. We want you to come along and see the inspection for yourself.
