Inspection Points

A structural and mechanical inspection gives you valuable insight into the condition of the building you plan to call home. This type of inspection is broad in general terms, with the goal of determining if more specific inspection is warranted. Only what can be seen is inspected, but a careful inspection of visible areas can determine if further investigation is needed.

What do we inspect? I'm glad you asked. Basically, we check everything about the house from the ground to the roof top, inside and out. But, let me give you a more detailed answer.
