Home Inspection Twin Cities | Duplex Inspector 612-913-7898
The home buying process can be very 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 hidden problems that could become costly surprises down the road.
As a professional Home Inspector, its our job to be as thorough as we can be without performing an evasive inspection. The Home Inspection is an unbiased, professional overview of the condition of the house. Although we may greatly reduce the risk of buying a house, we cannot possibly eliminate it, since it is visual in nature and not destructive.
Inspectors cannot see through walls or predict future performance. The inspection report provides you with an expert assessment on the condition of the structure and various systems within it. This will give you peace of mind knowing you did everything you could to to make the right decision on what is likely the largest single purchase you’ll ever make.
In order to accurately write the report, an inspector must conduct a visual inspection of the house. The inspection process typically takes about 2-3 hours or more to complete. This of course may vary, according to the size, condition, age of the home and if the sellers are there to help us, you may add another 30 to 45 minutes.
You are highly encouraged to accompany the inspector during the inspection. This will give you a chance to actually see the inspector in action, ask any questions about the house and become more 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:
- Framing (structure)
- Roof and attic
- Electrical system
- Plumbing system
- Heating and Cooling systems
- Kitchen (including built-in appliances)
- Exterior site and grounds
- Any potentially health or safety concerns
Additional items and systems unique to a particular home may also be inspected. When the inspection is complete, you will be advised of any problems that were discovered and the inspector will discuss them with you. You will also be informed about any routine or periodic maintenance that should be performed, as well as the answer to any questions you may have. You will also receive an inspection report of the inspection.
