how to prepare for our visit:


What the homeowner should do before we arrive for an inspection:


  • Make sure the utilities are turned on 24 hours in advance of the inspection.
  • Provide access to the home.
  • Make sure there is access to all things that need to be inspected such as:
    • Electrical panel
    • Attic entry
    • Crawl space entry
    • Water heater
    • Furnace

We love dogs and cats but they’re often protective of their space.  Please arrange for them to stay at a friends house or at a kennel.  Even a secured dog that is barking will distract us from doing our best work.


how Long will an inspection take?


Normally an unoccupied/unfurnished home will take 3 hours to inspect. A complex home inspection can take upwards of 4 hours. Complexity is determined by a few factors:

  • Age of the home
  • Condition of the home
  • Size of home
  • Weather conditions
