Most defects will not be this obvious. You want an inspector that travels to all corners of your attic, crawlspace and roof, Not one that just pokes their head into the hatch and says "Nothing to see here". We will inspect every inch that we can safely access and give you a report that isn't full of disclaimers.
I am always improving and learning Beyond the 24 hours of continuing education credits required by law, I spend 10-15 hours each week researching the building sciences. As a contractor I am always looking for a better way to build and repair. There are 2 obvious issue in this picture, Can you see what they are?
No handrail and the door opens over the stairs. A fall waiting to happen.
There are 4 issues in this picture...
S-trap, no trap, no high loop for dishwasher and Pex pipe should be stubbed out with rigid pipe. My report will spell all these out and why.
I am always vigilant to ensure my safety during the inspection and your safety while living in your home. I will traverse all roofs, attics and crawlspaces as long as I can safely do so.
You are welcome to attend any part of the inspection, but please do not follow me into crawl spaces or attics or or onto roofs. I will take lots of pictures and you will be able to see everything I see.
I don't just point out all things that might be wrong with your property but thing like where are the water shutoffs, the furnace filter, the gas shut off. Things you may need to know and why you need to know them.
I work for YOU! I don't work for agents or builders. I play nice with them, but I don't receive referrals from them so that I don't have a conflict of interest.This policy has hindered how many inspections I get, but my clients mean more to me than money.
I also don't schedule multiple inspections in one day. Much can be missed if one has to get going to the next job.
My service doesn't end with the report. I welcome any questions you may have long after your report is gathering dust in a drawer somewhere. Maybe you just need to know how to change the batteries in the smoke detector I recommended be installed.
