What to Expect From Your Inspection

Infographic of what's included in a home inspection

Whether you are buying, selling or maintaining your home, Ground Level Home Inspections provides professional and quality service from the moment you call. We are certified home inspectors who will walk through your home with you and teach you as much as you want to learn. We strictly follow the Standards of Practice for home inspectors established by InterNACHI, the leading home inspection association.

After we walk through the home together, we will explain the general condition of the home and systems to you and your agent. We will review any major issues that need to be addressed sooner rather than later. We will also mention the items that you may want to keep an eye on for deferred maintenance. All of this will be detailed in our easy-to-read Spectora report, which will be delivered in HTML and/or PDF format. From that report, you will be able to see the items we discussed, with images for reference.

In addition to a visual inspection, we’ll be using advanced tools such as an infrared camera, a moisture meter, and a gas leak detector. These extra services will allow us to confirm suspected issues we can’t see with the naked eye, and they come free of charge with your inspection.
