Our Residential Home Inspection is a non-invasive, visual walkthrough assessment of the home. We inspect the quality of safely accessible components and systems while looking for damage or defects.
When we write your report, identified defects are broken down into three categories: Minor, Major, and Material.
• Minor Defect is usually more of a maintenance item and not an urgent repair such as a missing doorstop or a hairline crack in the driveway.
• Major Defect is one that is a potential safety concern, such as a trip hazard from tree roots or an item which needs evaluated or fixed as soon as possible like a plumbing leak.
• Material Defect is an imminent safety concern, such as a deck which isn’t secure or electric issues which pose a fire hazard.
