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. I am a certified home inspector who will walk through your home with you and teach you as much as you want to learn. I strictly follow the Standards of Practice for home inspectors established by InterNACHI, the leading home inspection association.

After we walk through the home together, I will explain the general condition of the home and systems with you and your agent. I will review any major issues that need to be addressed sooner rather than later. I will also mention the items that you may want to keep an eye on for deferred maintenance. All of this will be detailed in my 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, I’ll be using advanced tools such as an infrared camera, moisture meter, and a gas leak detector. These extra services will allow me to confirm suspected issues I can’t see with the naked eye, and they come free of charge with your inspection.
