Code Red Home Inspections, pllc

Q:  What do I have to do in order to prepare for a home inspection?

A:  Ensure the home is accessible and provide keys to all locked doors, etc., so all areas can be inspected.  All utilities will need to be on and, at the very least, secure animals in crates, or kennels away from where the inspector will be.

Q:  How long does a home inspection take?

A:  Most inspections take approximately three hours to complete.  These times can vary based on the size, age, and condition of the home.

Q:  When do I get the inspection report?

A:  The inspection report will be emailed to you by the end of the day in most cases. Your inspector can let you know once he gets started when you will get your report.  Multiple units or very old houses can take longer.  

Q:  Can I attend the inspection?

A:  Of course!  It is highly recommended you be present during the inspection, but if you can't make it, you will get a very detailed report, and we are happy to go over everything on the phone if needed.  

Q: Why can't I have someone in my family who is very handy or a contractor inspect my new home?

A: This is the biggest mistake many potential new homeowners make when purchasing a home. Although the person you are considering may be very skilled, they are not trained or experienced at professional home inspections. Professional home inspection is a unique skill like no other. Professional inspectors get what we call an inspector's instinct for problems. That instinct takes extensive training and lots of experience doing inspections to develop. Many contractors and other trade professionals hire a professional home inspector to inspect their homes when they make a purchase.

Q:  What if I have questions after the inspection?

A:  You can call us and discuss all the aspects of your home anytime you like.  Our service is a long-term investment. 817-648-8606
