  • Frequently Asked Questions


A home inspection is a thorough non-invasive physical analysis of the parts of a house from the inside out.
Home inspections are recommended before buying and selling a house to know about the present condition and value of a house. Present homeowners are recommended to have home inspections done once or twice a year to maintain it.
For present homeowners, a home inspection is recommended after severe weather conditions or seasons end, e.g winters after a heavy snowfall. For real estate buyers a home inspection is done after making an offer. Sellers should get inspections done before listing their house, in order to get minor repairs done and assess the market value of their home using its present inspection report.
Inspectors in California are not required to be licensed by law. Checking out a company's Customer reviews page is a good idea to know about the ratings people have left after using their services.
Home inspection companies offer basic home inspections and additional advanced services as well. A basic inspection usually covers a physical inspection of the walls, doors, ceilings, floors, attic, roof, plumbing, electrical systems, and hvac systems of a house. Advanced services include radon inspection , mold inspection and so on.
A home inspection usually takes 2.5 to 3.5 hours and less for a condo. The time may increase with the size and age of a house.
A home inspection checklist is used by home inspectors to assess the physical condition of a property. A checklist includes ceilings, roof, doors, windows, floors, crawlspaces, basements, HVAC Systems, heating and cooling systems, plumbing, and more.
