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 inspectors
observations or recommendations help to dispel home purchaser
anxieties, and provide useful repair suggestions.
The home inspectors 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 inspectors 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 owners 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.
