The Typical home inspection


NO HOME IS PERFECT. WE CLASSIFY THE CONDITIONS WE FIND BY CATEGORY WHICH INCLUDE:
Maintenance Items, Major Unsatisfactory Items, Safety Issues, and Informational/Maintenance Information
We always find things in most of the categories whether it is a New Construction, a Mid-Century Ranch, Two or Three Story Victorian, Log Home, Loft, or a 100(+/-) year old Home with a stone foundation and a sub-basement.

A home inspection is an objective non-invasive visual examination of the physical structure and systems of a house, from the roof to the foundation.

The standard home inspection is a snap shot of the homes condition at the time of the inspection. Typically covering the conditions of the home’s heating/cooling and interior plumbing/electrical systems, roof, attic, visible insulation, walls, ceilings, floors, windows/doors, foundation, basement, and structural components. Every home inspection I perform meets the ASHI Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics which outlines what you should expect.

Serviceable – Everything that is satisfactory a the time of the inspection.
Concealed – Concealed conditions that can not be seen including but not limited to conditions,latent defects, consequential damages that are behind walls, under floors, bellow grade whether purposely hidden or not.
Maintenance – Conditions that are generally under $500 and not a health or life safety issue including deferred maintenance.
Unsatisfactory – Typically any condition costing over $500 to repair/replace/correct or a health and life safety issue.
General Notes – General recommendations, maintenance advice and other supplementary information.

They took the time to patiently explain everything

Mr. Brewer and Mr. Goodman and their team (sewage, termite and radon inspectors) were a pleasure to work with. They were timely, professional, polite, very thorough, and took the time to patiently explain all of their findings. I received the radon, sewage, and termite reports within a couple of hours of the service being completed! This was our first time ...

Fantastic job and very informative

Gordon, Mark, and the whole team (termite and sewer) did a fantastic job! Everyone was very professional and very informative. Mark and Gordon are very thorough and have no problems explaining any of their findings. I will no doubt use them again if I ever need another inspection.

Without Mark's expertise, I may have walked

My inspector was Mark Goodman. He was on time, VERY knowledgeable, thorough, and detail-oriented — just what I needed in a home inspector. The house was a little older (built in the early 50’s). He identified some asbestos in the basement that hadn’t been disclosed. He also explained safety issues and what to look for in an asbestos-abatement company. Without ...
