What to Expect During a Home Inspection
There’s the excitement — the inspection could be the longest time you’re in the house, after the showing.
What if the inspector finds something wrong? So wrong you can’t buy the house?
Seriously, is this whole home-buying process over yet?
So take a deep breath. Because the most important thing to know about home inspection: It’s just too good for you, as a buyer, to skip. Here’s why.
We place ourselves in your shoes because yes we own a home!
An inspector helps you make sure a house isn’t hiding anything before you commit for the long haul. (Think about it this way: You wouldn’t even get coffee with a stranger without checking out their history.)
A home inspector identifies any reasonably discoverable problems with the house (a leaky roof, faulty plumbing, etc.). Hiring an inspector is you doing your due diligence. To find a good one (more on how to do that soon), it helps to have an understanding of what the typical home inspection entails.

After we provide our professional visual inspection on the home or business, there are a few more interesting procedures you may consider.
Chimney Inspection Video: The interior lining of a fireplace chimney should be inspected prior to the purchase of a home, this may save you an additional expense. This inspection should be done after the chimney has been cleaned. We check for cracks and defects that are not covered by a standard inspection.
Pressurization test inspection on a home or business that has gas fired appliances: Very important that all fossil fuel appliance's will draft properly and burn efficiently. Back drafting of carbon monoxide will happen when a home has negative pressure. Exhaust fan's, leaky HVAC ductwork will cause negative pressure.
HVAC Airflow measurements and temperature difference in the duct system would pay for itself in the long run. Taking temperature measurements from the supply and return duct system will provide information on efficiency and defects. Taking airflow CFM measurements will also provide operational defects if any.
Indoor Air Quality Testing. We test for CO, CO2, Formaldehyde, PCBs & radon.
