Frequently Asked Questions
Our visits can vary based on your needs, but the quotes we send will are for a single visit per phase (3 visits total). There are times when we document and report on major defects with the home, or when there are a large number of notable defects. In both of those scenarios, it can be difficult to determine if the builder has made any of the agreed upon repairs, in which case our services are requested for a re-inspection. There is a fee for any additional inspections, which is contingent upon our estimated time on-site.
I would never say that I inspect ALL the outlets, as I know for sure if you have outlets in the eaves/soffits and some other locations they won’t be checked…but it is our goal to check all the accessible outlets. As far as wiring, this is a visual only non-invasive inspection, like all home inspections, so we do not typically remove outlets from the walls, however; when an inspector “inspects” an outlet they do so with the use of a circuit analyzer which will help reveal improperly wired outlets.
The irrigation system (Sprinklers in the building world refer to water/fire sprinklers within the home) is inspected and the method and scope can be further defined when viewing the sample report on our website. We do not charge extra for home’s that have irrigation systems, but the inspection has some limitations, which you can read about on the TREC website.
