May I shadow you during the inspection?
Of course! In fact, we encourage you to join us during the inspection to learn about the major components of your home!
Do you do repairs?
No, we do not. We are purely a home inspection business; it's what we're great at.
Do you recommend contractors or trades workers?
No, we do not. We refuse to take money or reimbursement from contractors or tradespeople in exchange for referrals. We believe that such schemes are dishonest. We will never pressure you to
hire a contractor.
What happens if my house fails inspection?
A house cannot fail an inspection. These inspections are done purely to gauge the structural integrity of the home and to point out any flaws that could be dangerous or damaging.
