We strongly recommend that the client be present during the inspection.

Attending the inspection will help the client fully understand the inspector’s findings and avoid misunderstandings later.

This Agreement must be signed by the client(s) at least 24 hours before the inspection is started.  This document is emailed to your once your inspection is scheduled and can be read and sign electronically.

Payment is due at the completion of the inspection.

We accept cash, checks, Master Card, Visa and Discover.

We use a unique combination of a full narrative report along with the How To Operate Your Home® reference manual for the most comprehensive inspection report available.  Go to Home Inspection for more information.

The client will receive the How To Operate Your Home® book at the completion of the home inspection.  The narrative report will be available for download from your property report page, normally within 24-48 hours of the inspection.  An email will be sent with a link to this page once the report has been completed.  Radon test reports will be emailed to the client and client’s agent at the completion of the 48-hour test.  Water test results will be emailed to the client and client’s agent 3 to 7 days after the sample is collected, depending on the type of test ordered. Termite and septic inspection reports will be generated electronically and the PDF files will be available online.
