Frequently Asked Home Inspection Questions

(Click on question to view answer.)

1. Why should I have a professional home inspection?
Answer: A home purchase is one of the biggest investments you will ever make, and an inspection from AmeriSpec helps provide the information you need to feel confident about it. After receiving our thorough, objective report detailing the home's condition, you'll be able to make a smart, informed decision.
2. How long does an inspection take?
Answer: The process usually takes two to four hours depending on size, age and condition of the home and any additional services provided.
3. Do I need to be present during the inspection?
Answer: Yes. The goal of a home inspection is not just to inspect the property, but also to educate the homeowner or potential buyer about the property's condition. You should feel free to ask the inspector any questions you may have during the inspection process. This is better achieved if you are present at the time of the inspection.
4. What is included in the home inspection report?
Answer: The AmeriSpec Report is an easy-to-read narrative, detailed, informative and extremely thorough document detailing the condition of the home's major areas (such as heating, air conditioning, plumbing, electrical, roofing, etc.) In addition, you'll receive a Seasonal Maintenance Checklist with tips for keeping your home in shape, a do-it-yourself Home Repair Manual, and saving on home services from Service Master of Brands.
5. How and when will I receive my report?
Answer: At the end of the inspection, your inspector will provide you with an access code. This code will allow you to obtain your home inspection report from our website the following morning.
6. Why should I choose AmeriSpec over a local competitor?
Answer: Since its inception, AmeriSpec has conducted in excess of 2 million inspections. AmeriSpec has over 250 independently owned and operated businesses with insured, well-trained inspectors who perform an average of over 110,000 inspections annually in the U.S. and Canada.
7. How qualified are AmeriSpec inspectors?
Answer: All of our inspectors are trained and certified to meet the highest industry standards. AmeriSpec offers the best education in the industry by combining classroom instruction and hands-on technical training in our state-of-the-art facility. To enhance our classes, AmeriSpec uses a complete educational training system developed specifically for us by Carson Dunlop and Associates, one of the most respected names in professional home inspection training.
