Do I need to be there?
IC Home Inspections always recommends that you are present
for as much of the inspection as possible. Of course, schedules
can be tight, and you may not be able to attend. IC Home Inspections
will still give you the time you need to understand the inspection
results over the telephone, and deliver the complete report
to you as soon as possible.
How long does an inspection
take? Inspections average
2 to 2 1/2 hours. Times vary depending on the size, age &
condition of the home or building.
Why do I need a Home Inspection?
A home inspection is an excellent tool for the home buyer
to help determine not only the current condition of the home,
but also to potentially identify any immediate additional
costs (emergencies) that may not be evident to the untrained
eye. Home inspections are not a prediction of future performance,
but can identify existing problem areas or deficiencies for
current standards. At the end of the inspection you
will know the condition of your prospective purchase and will
save considerable heartache and expense by avoiding any emergencies.
The seller and the real estate agents will avoid delays because
problems, if any, are known up front.
