A comprehensive home inspection is an investment in
peace of mind


It’s all too easy to fall in love with the home of your dreams. But if the structure has hidden problems — ones that may end up costing you thousands of dollars in unexpected repairs — then that dream house could turn into a nightmare.

How do you protect yourself?
By having a thorough home inspection done… before you sign on the dotted line.

An in-depth home inspection can take some of the risk out of buying a home by spotlighting the structure’s strengths and uncovering potential weaknesses. And if it finds a major problem that you believe is the seller’s responsibility, a home inspection can also give you the financial leverage you need to renegotiate the purchase price.
