General Building Inspection

The Issue

Prior to purchasing your primary residence, vacation home, or an investment property, you should be aware of existing problems or problems that may arise during your ownership of the property. Often issues that could lead to costly repairs are not readily apparent to prospective purchasers or real estate agents even after several walk-throughs. Our trained inspectors know what to look for, and they perform a comprehensive evaluation of your property. To better understand the reasons for performing a home inspection, see our explanation of The Importance of Home Inspection.
