Purchasing a new home can be a stressful and complicated process. There are many things to consider and decisions to make. You should feel comfortable making those decisions and my inspection will provide you the tools and information to relieve some of that stress, helping you make the right decisions along the way. You will receive a professional report with a prioritized list of Deficiencies, Safety issues and Maintenance items. The report is easy to navigate and will also contain clear digital images, illustrations, links to further information and most importantly recommendations and timelines for correcting the deficiencies. All clients are welcome to be present and follow the inspector for the duration of the inspection or to meet up near the end of the inspection for a summary and walk through.
