FAQs about Home Inspection

Through the years, our home inspection company near St Paul has heard a lot of questions about home inspections, and here are a few of the ones we hear the most. If you don’t see your question on this list, please don’t hesitate to call our home inspection company to ask!

Q: What is a home inspection?

A: A home inspection is when a home inspector walks through a property to objectively and visually inspect the physical structure and the systems within a house and property. Everything between the house’s roof and foundation is examined to see if there are any needed repairs or any problems with the house, the plumbing and HVAC systems and more.

Q: Who normally hires a home inspection company?

A: Generally speaking, the house buyer will hire a home inspection company. The home inspector can point out any flaws with the house and report on them to the house buyer. The home inspector cannot give advice to the buyer in terms of whether or not they should buy the property, but armed with the knowledge from the home inspection report, the house buyer can come to an informed decision.

Q: Why should I have a home inspection done?

A: Buying a house is probably the biggest investment most people will ever make, so it is important to know everything there is to know about the house and property and the type of repair work it will need, if any.

Q: What does the home inspector look at during the home inspection process?

A: Our home inspection company does a 400-point inspection, looking at everything from the roof and foundation to the windows and doors, walls, HVAC system, plumbing system, appliances, attic, crawl spaces, chimney and more. We then give the home buyer a report that details everything we found. We also encourage the buyer to be present during the inspection to ask questions and to learn about the house firsthand.

Q: What sets your home inspection company apart from the rest?

A: As mentioned, we offer a 400-point inspection as well as a detailed report that gives more information on everything our home inspection company found while inspecting the house and property. We print the report with color digital photos on site, all of our house inspectors have been with us for more than 12 years each and every time you call us, there is a live voice answering the phone, not a recording.
