Our typical inspection will take approx. 1-2hrs per 1000 sq/ft to thoroughly evaluate the property. 


And, we encourage our clients to attend the entire inspection!  We have found that attending the inspection gives the client the opportunity to learn more about their potential new home.  We will not only inspect the property, but will share with you what needs to be maintained and why.


You should feel free to ask the inspector any questions you may have during the inspection process.  He will point out problems and explain them to you in terms you can understand.  Also, we will explain what routine maintenance is needed to keep the home in good working order.  This will allow you to get the most benefit from the inspection as well as gain additional knowledge on the various systems within your home and how to maintain them.
