Compare our home inspection reports to any other company. You will notice a difference. We know what is important to our clients. Many newer, less experienced inspectors will not be as detailed or experienced with the huge variety of houses that we run across. We have seen just about everything from houses built in the late 1800’s to bad remodels or “flips”.

Our philosophy is that you should have as much information about the house as possible. We use every tool we have to find any problems. Our inspectors detail everything with clarity (and good grammar!). We inspect hundreds of items in a house. We check everything from the foundation to the roof, and just about everything in between.

When you look at our sample report, please note the incorporation of thermal imaging in our report. We use Infrared Thermal Imaging to find leaks that can easily go un-noticed by inspectors who have not made the investment in this technology. Many discount inspectors do not use this equipment which can cost you in the long run.

Our inspectors have your best interest in mind. The very last thing we want is to have you move into your new home only to find expensive problems. We have no problem telling agents to find another inspection company if they imply that we should “ignore” certain items. If we find it, it goes in the report. Even if the seller says, “Oh, I’m fixing that later today”.

A home inspection is a detailed evaluation of a house and is intended to reveal items that substantially affect habitability. Our primary concerns are your family’s health and safety, and identifying items that could be expensive to repair that may not have been fully disclosed to you by the seller.

Having said that, there are several things you should not expect from a home inspection. It is not an evaluation of cosmetic or decorator items. It is not a guarantee that a seller must fix any of the items in the report. For example, a seller does not have to bring an older home in compliance with today’s building standards. An old house with single pane windows is not required to have double pane windows installed for you. We do not inventory the items in the house, and we do not confirm the accuracy of the MLS statements. If you are buying an older home please visit our Insider’s Guide to buying older houses.

When choosing a property inspection company for your home, consider your options carefully. Home inspectors are not generic, and they are not all the same. Just like most other services a good one costs a few dollars more. But a good inspection can be worth thousands of dollars in seller concessions or repairs.

The Prime Home Inspection follows the NACHI Standards of Practice. Please review these standards prior to the inspection so you know what to expect from your inspection, and what your inspector will and will not inspect.
