Home ASHI

Home buyers typically focus on those aspects of a home that are important to them. Location is paramount, such as convenience to work, favorite church, recreation sites nearby or public transportation. The next focus is the physical aspects of the home, such as exterior appearance, size of the yard, floor plan, number of bedrooms and baths, layout of kitchen and baths, to name a few. Often overlooked during the initial search for that new home are the environmental conditions the buyer will be exposed to while living and sleeping in the new home.

Alban inspectors focus on the whole house and every aspect of it, the structure, its individual components and equipment, outside grading and environmental living conditions within the house. This whole house approach is designed to deliver to our clients that most important feeling Peace of Mind.
