how to prepare for our visit:
What the homeowner should do before I 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
I love dogs 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 me from doing my 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
