Why should I have a professional home inspection?
A home purchase is one of the biggest investments you will ever make, and an inspection from Tinman Inspections helps provide the information you need to feel confident about it. After receiving our thorough, objective, easy to read report detailing the home’s condition, you’ll be able to make an informed decision.
How long does an inspection take?
The typical home inspection process usually takes two to three hours depending on size, age and condition of the home and any additional services provided.
Do I need to be present during the inspection?
No, but I do strongly recommend that you are. The goal of a home inspection is not just to inspect the property, but also to educate the homeowner or potential buyer about the property’s condition. This is better achieved if you are present at the time of the inspection.
However, if you are unable to attend we are able to access the property using our Supra Key Access. After the inspection is complete I can review the report with you either in person or over the phone.
How will the inspection help me determine the condition of the home?
The home inspection is a non-invasive inspection. During the course of the inspection, I will explain the condition of the property. You will also be provided with the computer generated, easy to read Report to help you make an informed purchasing decision.
What is included in the home inspection Report?
The report is an easy-to-reference document detailing the condition of the home’s major areas (such as structure, grading/ drainage, heating, air conditioning, plumbing, electrical, roofing, etc.). In addition, you’ll receive a Seasonal Maintenance Checklist with tips for keeping your home in shape, and every report includes suggestions on how you can improve the energy efficiency of your home, helping the overall environment and also helping you reduce your utility bills.
