Premier North East Ohio Home Inspectors

General Home Inspection

For most people buying a home is the largest purchase they will make in their lifetime.  Your choice in hiring a home inspection company to represent you is an important part of buying a home. Choosing a qualified, honest, and experienced property inspector is a great way to protect your investment.  We will identify the physical condition of your future home so that an informed decision can be made without undue stress or delays. Some home sellers will try to hide major problems and even serious safety concerns within the home.  

There are a few different types of home inspections including:

(Pre-Listing)- Have your home inspected to get an idea of its current condition before you put it on the market. 

(Pre-Purchase)- Have you found your dream home?  Be sure to have it looked at before signing documents to address any major concerns with the property.

(Warranty)- Even if you have a brand-new home it may be beneficial to have it inspected before your one-year home warranty expires in case there were improper building techniques used. 

(Investment)- If buying a property for a "flip" or a rental we can help to protect you against investing in a property with potential liability.  We are happy to work with out-of-state investors.  

Your inspection will be a visual, noninvasive and unbiased evaluation of the property.  All permanent components used within a home are tested and/or operated to verify proper operation or installation.

Scope of the inspection includes:

• Roof, Vents, Flashings and Trim
• Gutters and Downspouts
• Skylight, Chimney, and Other Roof Penetrations

Following your inspection, you will be sent a detailed comprehensive digital report that will be clear and easy to understand.  Your report will be drafted with Home Inspector Pro, our state-of-the-art reporting program and will include photos of any issues found during the inspection.  This report will provide you with valuable information about your property and will adhere to the InterNACHI Standards of Practice.
