Full Home Inspection

What is a Home Inspection?
A home inspection is an objective visual non-destructive examination of the systems and structure of a home, from the roof to the foundation. If a problem or symptom is discovered, the inspector may recommend further evaluation. The inspection can take approximately three hours to complete, depending on the size and age of the home.

A home inspection is not a warranty or insurance program, but a method to assist you in understanding the current condition of your new home and furthering sound decision making.

Before you buy or sell a home in Charleston, SC, be sure you hire a Certified Home Inspector to confirm that your home does not contain major defects that could cost you thousands of dollars after you move in or prior to closing.

Do yourself a favor
Beware of Price Shopping: Lower home inspector fees should be regarded with suspicion, as they are new to the business or who do not spend sufficient time performing the inspection. A home is your biggest investment. One defect missed by your inspector could cost 100 times what you save with a bargain inspection.
