Why have a Home Inspection?
To get that clear picture, you need an expert who understands the different mechanical systems and structural components of the house and the way they interact. This job is done by a licensed home inspector and a registered engineer.
What does a Home Inspection cost?
In addition, getting both the services of a home inspector and a registered engineer in many cases will save you time and money in the long run. If a home inspector who is not a registered engineer recommends the services of an engineer, most likely the mortgage company and probably you will require a registered engineer to evaluate your house. Thus, you will be paying for the services of a registered engineer which typically costs $800.00 to look at the isolated problem noted by the home inspector.
The inspector checks the condition of all the mechanical systems (such as the heating, cooling, and electrical system, etc.) and structural components (walls, foundation, floor system, roof, etc.) of the house. The inspection typically takes about 2 - 4 hours and it is highly recommended that you attend as well. You will be able to ask the inspector any questions and learn a lot about the home.
The following items are covered in a general home inspection:
As the inspector checks every individual component or system, he will show you any problem he spots, explain its cause, and give you an estimate for the cost to cure. The inspector will record all his observations and recommendations in the home inspection report. Remember, we are on your side to help you make a smart buying decision.
