HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE?
The actual home inspection lasts approximately 2 to 2 1/2 hours, depending on the square footage of the house. This time is when the inspector is conducting the inspection and writing the report to review with the client. The client needs to budget about 30 minutes to an hour after the inspection is completed in most cases to review the report in person with the inspector.
WHAT GOES ON DURING THE INSPECTION TIME FRAME?
The majority of the time is spent examining all areas of the house, and testing installed systems. Then, the inspector will ensure all information, good pictures, and condition descriptions are informative and descriptive in an easy to read format. He then prints out the inspection report for client overview and questions.
CAN I BE THERE? WHAT IF I'M UNABLE TO ATTEND?
Clients and/or their representatives are welcome to attend the entire process, however, will usually attend after the home inspection is conducted and the inspection report is completed for an in-person inspection summary. Roger is able to answer any questions for reported notes as well as provide helpful home maintenance information. If the client, as well as a client representative is unable to attend, they can have the results mailed and/or e-mailed to them. In this case, Roger would encourage a phone summary to cover the inspection with the client and answer questions. The professionally formatted report includes a detailed overview and summary of the most glaring items.
WHAT ABOUT RADON TESTING?
A Continuous Radon Monitor (CRM) is strategically placed in the appropriate area of the property to examine Radon levels for 48 hours. Once completed, a report is completed and mitigation is recommended if necessary. Radon measurement results, and if applicable, mitigation recommendations are available within 48 hours.
