International Code Council Certified Building Inspector

Policies

Our Goal:

It is our intention to serve you as quickly as possible. Weather, however, can make exterior evaluations difficult if not impossible. Therefore, we try to schedule your inspection when weather conditions are conducive to permitting a fair and objective evaluation of the property.

What is Included:

A draft report can be furnished at the completion of the field work. A formal report is provided after the observed conditions can be evaluated, and included in the report with appropriate comments.

 

The Inspection:

Please understand the following:

The information contained in the report is an opinion only, based on sensory observations of the inspector at the time of the inspection, and is not intended to be a guarantee. The information in the report represents the judgement of the inspector only.

The scope of a standard inspection is targeted at providing an informative, reasonably detailed, and objective evaluation of the condition of the property, so that the client understands the condition of the property.

A technically exhaustive report, although possible, is not feasible, since such a report would likely require destructive investigation, and would require an excessive amount of time to produce.

We make every effort to report any and all defects observable during the visit. However, we are human, so we can miss something, even though it is visible.
