The Home Inspection
During a home inspection, the inspector will assess the condition of a house including its roof, structural integrity, and exterior. Also inspected are the electrical system, heating / cooling, plumbing, insulation, and interior finishes. We encourage home-buyers to be present whenever possible and to ask as many questions as they can.
Joe is licensed by the Commonwealth of Virginia (#3380000776) holding New Residential Construction credentials, an ASHI (American Society of Home Inspectors) Certified Inspector, certified AARST-NRPP Residential Radon Measurement Provider (#109096 RT), and currently on the executive board of the Virginia Association of Real Estate Inspectors . He also enjoys writing and teaching about the home inspection industry.
After the on-site inspection, buyers get a report that describes the home’s systems, details any limitations encountered during the home inspection, and makes recommendations for improvement. Our reports are designed so that buyers don’t have 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 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, putting the power of our experience into the hands of our customers so they can make well-informed decisions during the buying process.
Please call or email Joe about any inspection-related questions you might have.
