What Makes Our Inspection Process Exceptional?
Our inspectors provide a comprehensive inspection and identify specialized evaluations a property may need. In Hartford County, our inspectors often recommend foundation testing due to the occurrence of failing foundations that are made with pyrrhotite in this area. Pyrrhotite can cause concrete used for foundations to fail by breaking down. A licensed engineer from our team can perform a professional engineering evaluation and core tap testing (if needed) to determine how sturdy the foundation of the home is.
Once the inspection is completed, our inspectors will make certain you are well informed about every area of the property that may need maintenance, repair, or upgrading, so that you're prepared to care for your investment.
All of our inspectors are state-licensed and have the latest industry training. It's important to have the best industry training and we extend this to the local community by offering inspection classes to the Greater Hartford Association of Realtors and other industry professionals.
What Does Our Home Inspection Cover?
A standard home inspection will cover the major systems of a home including: the condition of the home’s heating and cooling systems, plumbing; electrical systems; roof; attic; windows, ceilings, floors, walls; doors; the foundation, basement and structural components.
How Much Does a Home Inspection Cost?
The cost varies based on many factors and is directly related to your own inspection needs. A standard home inspection costs will factor in square footage and the age of the home being inspected. Clients with wells will want their home inspector to complete water testing. If you have health concerns, allergies or a weakened immune system, it would be crucial to consider the cost of a comprehensive mold testing service to your inspection. There are many factors that affect home inspection pricing, but if you're price shopping be sure to ask if the inspector is licensed and insured, if he or she carries E&O insurance, and if he or she offers any guarantees.
