All-Spec Home Inspections

Inspection Overview

All-Spec Home Inspections includes a visual check of hundreds of items to assist you to know everything you can about the home before you agree to buy. This knowledge will help you make informed decisions during the purchase, and will provide you with information you will need for any repairs or maintenance your new home may require. We will inspect your home from top to bottom.

A home cannot fail an inspection. A professional home inspection gives you an independent, unbiased view of any problems and their solutions, so that you will have all the facts you need to make a sound, informed decision.

Depending on the size and condition of the home, a thorough home inspection will take no more than four hours, usually between an hour and a half and three hours. Ideally, you will accompany your inspector during the consultation, so that you will have visual reinforcement of your written report.

A thorough home inspection will include the following:

~ Roof (shingles, flashings, chimneys, vents, trim and gutters, drip edges, skylights, downspouts, and other visible roof related items)

~ Attics (insulation, ventilation, rafters, joists and collar ties, trusses, wiring attachments, and other visible related items)
