What to Expect From Your Inspection
Kerwin Inspections provides a thorough visual examination of the property, including all major systems and appliances in your home such as heating/cooling, plumbing, electrical wiring, etc. We will be looking for any deficiencies with these items that may need attention before you buy or sell your house.
We will detail our findings in a easy-to-read modern report within 24 hours of your inspection so you can make an informed decision. Our goal is not only to make sure everything works properly but also to identify potential safety hazards like faulty wiring or exposed gas lines. If we see something wrong or unusual that doesn’t seem right, we’ll bring this up immediately.
How much does a home inspection cost?
Inspections can vary greatly depending upon the size of the house, number of rooms, condition of the house, location, etc. Generally speaking, larger houses will cost more than smaller ones. Also, properties located near large bodies of water require extra time due to their proximity to the ocean, lake, river, creek, bayou, pond, canal, etc.
How long will the home inspection take?
Of course, it depends on the house size but the average time for a professional home inspector to complete an inspection of your property is about 2-3 hours.
What happens after the Inspection Report is complete?
After reviewing the report, we’ll usually recommend 3 things:
1. Fix any obvious issues
2. Make small adjustments to increase efficiency
3. Provide recommendations for future improvements to minimize further maintenance expenses.
Do you provide referrals for contractors?
Yes, absolutely!! This is something very important to us. Because of our experience and expertise, we often work directly with builders, architects, engineers, painters, plumbers, electricians, gardeners, mechanics, carpenters, handymen, etc. Many times, we suggest a company or individual for jobs ranging from minor tune-ups to major renovations. It really helps us stay current and provides us with a great opportunity to share our knowledge with clients. Let’s connect!
