Take a look at our helpful FAQ section to see answers to our most commonly asked questions.
What is a home inspection?

A home inspection evaluates a properties physical structure and systems, from the roof to the foundation. Most homes usually takes 3-4 hours to complete, though this is heavily dependent on the home’s size and condition. After the inspection process, your inspector will send out a same day inspection report that covers their findings, complete with pictures, analysis, and recommendations.

What do you look for during a home inspection?

We look at all the major components of a property along with many other areas, and your chosen add-ons, that could cause issues for you in the future. For example: Roof, Attic & Structure, Foundation, HVAC, Plumbing, Electrical, Pools/Hot Tubs, Sewer Scope, Termites & Pests, Thermal Imaging, Interior Areas, Bathrooms, Kitchen/Appliances, Walls, Ceilings, Floors, Windows, Doors & More!


What types of properties do we inspect?

We thoroughly evaluate properties such as: single-family homes, multi-family homes, mobile/manufactured homes, single/multi-unit condos, new build homes, pre-drywall homes and 11 month new builder warranties.  We can also do smaller commercial buildings if needed.


When should I order a residential home inspection?

When you are buying or selling a residential property, you should order a home inspection and any applicable add-on services to identify potential issues with its condition.

Are residential home inspections worth it?

Yes!  A home inspection is your best opportunity to get a clear evaluation of your potential new home. Knowledge is power!  You can now ask for repairs and/or negotiate to your benefit.

602.999.5850.  We look forward to hearing from you.

What is a sewer scope?

A sewer scope is a detailed evaluation of the main underground and non-visible plumbing sewer lines of your property. We send a specialized camera into your sewer line to capture digital video and images of it’s condition along with any issues we may find.  A very important add on to your inspection process. No one wants a sewer line problem and we can help you avoid one.

Do homebuyers need to be onsite during the inspection?

Although homebuyers don’t need to be present during the home inspection process, it is highly recommended for you to show up near the end for a findings wrap up with your inspector. We can answer your questions, show you our findings and walk you through the property from our point of view.


Can a house fail a home inspection?

No.  A home inspector will not pass or fail a house but rather describe its physical condition and indicate what components and systems may need major repair or replacement. A home inspection is not an appraisal and will not determine the home’s market value. It is also not a municipal inspection and does not verify local code compliance.

Rarely, if ever, have I received an inspector who provided the degree of clarity, professionalism, and congeniality as Joseph Vallone. He was thorough, respectful of our property, and explained his findings in a way they were clearly understood. On a scale of 1-10 he’s a 15.
