The home buying process can be confusing and stressful. Not only do you need to consider things such as price and location, you also have to worry about whether the house itself has any problems that could become costly surprises down the road.
As ASHI Certified Members in Chattanooga, TN, its our job to look for those problems for you. The Home Inspection is an unbiased, professional assessment of the condition of the house. It provides you an expert opinion and professional report on the condition of the physical structure and various systems within a house. Giving you peace of mind on what is likely the largest purchase you'll ever make.
In order to prepare the report, an inspector must conduct a visual inspection of the house. The inspection process typically takes about 4 hours to complete on a 2500 square foot house. This of course may vary, according to the size, age and condition of the home. We strongly encourage you to accompany the inspector during the inspection. This will give you a chance to ask questions and become familiar with the systems of the home.
We will inspect all the structural elements and systems of the home. Items that will typically be included in an inspection are:
Additional items and systems unique to a particular home can also be inspected.
When the inspection is complete, well tell you of any issues that were discovered and discuss them with you. We will also tell you about any routine maintenance that should be performed, as well as answer any questions you may have. You'll also be able to download from this site a full written report of the inspection within 24 hours of completing the inspection.
Our goal is to discover and inform you of anything we find that might affect your purchase decision. We will tell you about any problems we find and explain them in a clear and understandable manner.
