What Is A Home Inspection
A home inspection is a professional, objective, visual examination of readily-accessible and visible areas of a home. Home-buyers entering the marketplace view inspections as a way to gain valuable information about the biggest purchase of their lifetime. A home-inspection gives a full-spectrum view of the positive and negative traits of the structure, and advice on how to maintain the good and fix the bad. It is imperative to determine whether there are any major defects or system inadequacies at the time of purchase.

The report is narrative in nature so that you can read, in plain English, the results of the home inspection as it occurred. Advice on 'logical discretionary improvements' and home-maintenance and safety information is also provided.
