Q?

What is a Complete Home Inspection?

A.

A Complete Home Inspection is a visual, non-destructive inspection conducted by a licensed and trained home inspector. The inspector can detect issues that are not seen on a simple walk-through or visit to a property. Aspects of the property to be examined are: structural framing, electrical, plumbing, heating/air conditioning, roof, foundation, and more. The purpose of the Home Inspection is to help home buyers and sellers know the true status of the property. It is essential to know the needed repairs or damage before buying a home, so that the new homeowner does not move into a home that will require thousands of dollars of repair.

Q?

Do I Need a Home Inspection?

A.

Yes. The purchase of a home is an important, costly, and valuable investment. In order to ensure that the buyer knows exactly what they are buying and whether the property needs any repairs, a professional home inspection should be completed before the finalized sale of the property. The results can help the buyer negotiate price and know the status of the property they are buying, so there are no unexpected “surprises” after the purchase.

Q?

Can I Do the Home Inspection Myself?

A.

It is not practical that you perform the home inspection yourself. Home inspectors are licensed, experienced, and certified to assess all of the systems in a home. Home Inspectors are objective in their assessments and report the facts of the home’s status. A professional Home Inspection report may be required by insurance companies and can help negotiate a final sale of the property.

Q?

Do You Repair Any Problems You Find?

A.

No. As an MLS  certified inspector, Precision Home Inspectors is prohibited by the Code of Ethics from performing any repairs on properties we inspect.
