- What areas do you serve?
- Centered in Aurora, serve metro Denver, the Front Range, and beyond.
- Are you insured?
- Yes, we carry general liability insurance.
- How long does an inspection last?
- A typical inspection is around 3 hours, though more time may be required due to the age and overall condition of the home. Smaller homes, like condos and townhomes, may be less due to size and the fact some inspection points are not covered like single family homes.
- What happens if the weather is bad?
- We can only report what we can see, so if the weather does not cooperate some areas of the inspection, like the roof, cannot be done. However, other aspects of the internal inspection could provide good clues to what is happening outside in the elements.
- Am I expected to participate?
- Not at all. It is encouraged, especially for first time buyers so they can garner some understanding about critical components like the furnace and water heater. Asking exhaustive questions to your inspector can slow the process down however, and the written report can answer most all of those. Your inspector will point out important life safety information to you, like main cut-off valves for water, gas, and power during the inspection as well as in the report.
- What if no one can be present for the inspection?
- No problem, all details will be in the report. We can be contacted at any time with questions or concerns about the report, which will be emailed directly to you and your realtor upon completion.
