A professional home inspection can help you buy or sell your home with confidence. At CornerStone Inspections, we strongly encourage our clients to accompany us during the inspection. You should feel free to ask the inspector any questions you may have during the inspection process. The inspector will point out problems and explain them to you. The inspector will also show you the good points of the house. You will understand what routine maintenance is needed to keep the house in top condition. This will help you to get the most benefit from the inspection and gain the most understanding of the systems that make up your home, and how to maintain them.
You will receive a comprehensive report that is easy to understand. Everything identified during the inspection will be included in the report. Armed with the information our report will provide, you can make your decision with confidence.
In both new and older homes, the best way to ensure that you are well-informed about the strengths and weaknesses of a property is to have us give you a professional home inspection. We are trained to identify problem areas both small and large.
Whether you are selling your home on your own or using a Realtor, it is always a good idea to have a professional home inspection. All homes have strengths and weaknesses. We help you determine how serious any problems are, which should be immediately addressed, and which can wait. The more you know about your home, the more prepared you will be for negotiation.
New Home Inspection
In a new home, the quality of construction is often not what it used to be. Therefore, many buyers have independent reviews of their properties during various stages of the construction process. This can include a foundation, frame, and final inspection. This relatively inexpensive inspection protects your purchase, prevents unpleasant surprises, and ensures the quality home that you’ve dreamed about.
Most builders provide a one year warranty for new construction. Generally during this period of time the buyer develops a "punch list" of corrections for the contractor to repair under the warranty coverage. Some defects will not be obvious to the untrained eye. It is prudent to obtain our home inspectors list of items that will most likely be repaired by your builder at no cost to you. You will be reassured knowing that potential problems were addressed before they grew into something that could cost you a great deal down the road.
