Home Inspection Procedures

How We Operate

Available 7 Days a Week

We pride ourselves on our commitment to respond to all inquiries within 24 hours / 7 days a week. That’s unless we answer the phone on the first ring.

Yes, most often by a real person and not a “BOT”. Once connected we discus each client’s specific needs as quite often, the needs will vary from client to client.

Meet & Consult

We then set up a “Meet & Greet” or “Client Consultation” prior to performing the Inspection. We will review our step by step process, matching your specific needs.  We provide a verbal quotation prior to attending, along with a written agreement within 24 hours for both sides to sign.

2-3 Hour Inspection

In some instances, (as an example more complicated homes) our quote may be adjusted higher to ensure that we properly inspect your home, but we will always be forthright, ensuring no surprises or miscommunications before we commence our work. Typically, our inspection of your home will take between 2–3 hours.

Report & Review

After completion of our inspection, we review our findings with you in a step by step manner. Doing so ensures that you understand our findings and can make an informed decision. We always encourage our clients to not be shy when it comes to questions.
