Q: How do I choose a Home Inspector?
A: Ask your realtor for a list of recommended inspectors. Call up and ask each one about their credentials, experience and the services they offer. You should feel comfortable asking questions both over the phone and at the inspection. Then check to see who among these is the most experienced and has the most outstanding reputation for thoroughness as an inspector.
Q: What will the inspection cover?
A: A thorough Inspection covers everything from roof to the foundation.
Items that are included in the Inspection are as follows:
Q: Should I be present during the Inspection?
A: Yes, We recommend that you be present at the inspection, from start to finish. This will enable our inspector to physically point out any areas of concern and will allow you the freedom to ask questions as they arise during your inspection.
Q: How long will the Inspection take and can I bring my family?
A: Most Inspections take about three to four hours to complete. These times may vary depending on the size, age & condition of the home and the accessibility to the major components. We recommend that you do not bring your family, as this is a technical evaluation of the home. We’d like you to focus on the inspection and the inspector’s comments. Too many people will cause a distraction from the inspection process.
Q: What qualifications or certifications should a home inspector have?
A: Your inspector should be NAHI or ASHI certified. Here at SeeMore Home Inspections, we are NAHI Certified Real Estate Inspectors. This is the premier professional designation available today to all professional home inspectors in the United States. We are also DEP Certified for Radon Testing and Mitigating. We provide you with the most knowledgeable and qualified professionals available to you. Please visit www.NAHI.org or www.depweb.state.pa.us, keyword: Radon for more information
Q: Why use our Services?
A: The purchase of a new home is one of the most costly investments that you will make. A home inspection is an excellent tool for you, the home buyer, to help determine not only the condition of the home, but to also help foresee any immediate unnecessary additional costs that may go unnoticed without the help of a home inspection. Home inspections are not a prediction of future performance, but can pinpoint existing problem areas.
Q: Do I get my report immediately?
A: Yes, we provide you with a written report at the conclusion of your inspection. Your report is presented to you in a sturdy binder to keep for future reference. In addition to the report, we include Home Maintenance & Safety Tips. You’ll also receive a second copy for your realtor’s records and we’ll retain a copy for our records.
Q: What if I have questions after the inspection?
A: Our services don’t end with the inspection. For as long as you desire, you can call us with any additional questions- at no charge! Our service is a long-term investment.
