The Home Inspection
A home inspection is often required for home-buyers before closing on a house. During a home inspection, the inspector will assess the condition of a house, including its roof, structure & foundation, and exterior. Also inspected are the electrical system, heating / cooling, plumbing, insulation, and interior finishes. We encourage home-buyers to be present for their home inspection whenever possible and to ask questions about the inspection. It is important to us that buyers understand a given house and how to care for it.
After the on-site inspection, the inspector will send buyers a report that describes the home’s systems. The inspection report details any limitation encountered during the home inspection and recommendations for improvement. Our reports are designed so that people are not required to have an extensive background in building systems or construction to understand them. They are easy to read, and they make use of pictures, diagrams, and outside links.
As an added bonus, Virginia Dwelling Home Inspection Services customers get a free recall report. The report will inform customers of any major appliances in the home that have been recalled.
Our goal is to provide as much information about a house as a 3-5 hour inspection allows. Our home inspection services put the power of our experience into the hands of our customers, because they need the ability to make well-informed decisions.
