What is a Home Inspection?

I often describe a home inspection as ‘the performance of a physical to assess the wellness of the home.’  This is a holistic approach.  The primary systems of interest are: electric, plumbing, heating, structure, and roof.  In addition, the Inspector will be noting the condition of a wide range of items (i.e. windows, doors, walls, ceiling, floors, cabinets, decks, porches, patios, moisture entry concerns, mold/mildew issues, fireplaces, stoves, chimneys).


How Long is an inspection?

A home inspection usually takes 2 hours to complete, depending on the size of the home.  We prefer the client to be present during the inspection.  This allows an interactive process of inspection (client asking questions based on points of interest or learning more about possible concerns as well as proper operation and maintenance).


Is the report a check sheet?

No.  The information gained from the inspection will be compiled into a computer-generated narrative report (with pictures inserted into the report) for easy reading and future reference to create a ‘to-do’ list of maintenance or repairs.
The report will reflect the house as a whole and not consist merely of a list of concerns.  Therefore, the report retains usefulness beyond the time of inspection (i.e. reminders of ongoing maintenances).  A home that has already been inspected has an advantage during a future real estate transaction.
The report may include recommendations on future improvements to the home.  There is always room for improvement.  The home will benefit from the Inspector’s broad base of experience.


 Are you certified and insured?

Yes.  Camelot Inspections holds membership with ASHI (American Society of Home Inspectors) and is fully insured (Liability and Errors & Omission).
