Wondering what’s included in a standard Home Inspection? Read one of our Sample Reports. Our Inspectors are extremely thorough, each report is filled with pictures and clarification on any problems area we see. Insight will not minimize any problem, we provide an honest third party review of your home, so you can trust that you are getting what you pay for.
You can use this report for bargaining power with the seller, for your peace of mind, and as a reference tool in the future. In knowing what deficiencies a home has, you know how much work it will require after purchase - or you can choose to walk away. We are able to give you a prioritized list of the issues that need to be addressed first, and the most cost effective way to go about fixing them. We are not contractors, but we know some pretty good ones. If you need a referral to some people we trust we are happy to help. Every Home Inspection also includes a free personalized Home Binder account upon receiving the Inspection Report.

CAN WE DO CONDOS, MULTI-UNIT BUILDINGS?
Yes, we can do both!
WHAT IF THERE IS POOR WEATHER?
We will inspect all areas or systems that we can access or operate safely, at the time of the inspection. Cold weather (AC, roof, etc.), snow (roof, grading, decks, etc.) or rain (roof) can limit the scope of your inspection. This is not unusual and our inspectors can look for other signs indicating an issue with those systems. However, any additional visits would require an additional fee. This also applies to homes where the water or gas service was off during the inspection.
DO YOU OFFER ADDITIONAL SERVICES AT THE TIME OF THE INSPECTION?
Yes, we offer a variety of additional services that you may wish to add on to your Home Inspection. Services include your choice of: Radon testing, infrared imaging /moisture leaks, Indoor Air Quality Testing, mold testing, sewer scopes, pest inspections, building leakage (blower door). Additional fees will apply and vary per test.
