What is a Professional Home Inspection?

A professional Accutek home inspection is an objective visual report of a home's condition which identifies significant deficiencies, reduces costly surprises, reduces anxiety, increases home buyer or homeowner confidence in the condition of a property, and sets priorities for action. Our detailed advice also helps avoid future costly repairs.

In most cases, home inspections are performed after a sales contract, conditional upon a satisfactory home inspection, has been accepted by the seller. The inspection can usually be arranged within a few days. We encouraged the home buyer to attend the inspection, so that he/she can see first hand the workings of the home. It also represents an excellent opportunity for the prospective buyer to ask questions about the home or to discuss potential changes.

Home inspections are not intended to point out every small problem or defect in a home. Minor or cosmetic flaws, for example, should be apparent without the aid of a professional.

Home inspections should also highlight the positive aspects of a home. In fact, many of our home inspector’s observations or recommendations help to dispel home purchaser anxieties, and provide useful repair suggestions.

The home inspector’s service to the buyer is primarily one of education. The goal of our inspector is to provide the buyer with a better understanding of the physical condition of the home in order that they can make a well-informed decision. It is also the inspector’s role to keep his findings in perspective for the buyer.

Our comprehensive computerized reporting system allows us to create your report right at the house documenting the results of the inspection, along with an estimation of repair time frames and costs.

The home inspection should not be confused with an appraisal, a municipal code inspection, an environmental audit, or a home owner’s warranty.

An Accutek home inspection covers all of the major systems of a house, including structure, exterior, roofing, electrical, heating, cooling, insulation, plumbing and interior. As a minimum, an inspection should meet the Standard of Practice of the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI). Accutek meets and exceeds these standards.

Consumers should be very careful when shopping for a home inspector. The industry on the whole is unregulated and many unqualified people offer home inspection services. Home inspection companies that offer to do repair work, or recommend repair companies, should be avoided.

Accutek can make a difficult decision that much simpler. For your modest investment, the yield is high: the expert information you need immediately, and your lasting peace of mind.
