3 more home inspection tips you need to know

How can you get the most out of your home inspection experience? Potential buyers should always look at an inspection as a real introduction to the home, one that should solidify or discourage their reason to invest in the property.

Keep the following three tips in mind for a thorough, reliable home inspection experience:

  • Be present during the inspection: Often, homeowners decide to pass over attending the inspection. At Alban, we encourage all parties involved to attend the inspection and ask questions or voice concerns as needed. This often gives homeowners a better understanding of the property as well as a more in-depth look. 
  • Don't be afraid you're being "too pushy:" As a future homeowner of the property, you have every right to view the home from top to bottom and all the space in-between. Inspectors should be able to answer all of your questions in a detailed manner and directly show you the issue if necessary.
  • Enlist the right kind of help: Only use a trusted home inspection company for your inspection needs. A company such as Alban Inspections is best, as we are both experienced and qualified in the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI) code of ethics. This ensures your inspection is done by the book and gives you the peace of mind you deserve.

At the end of your home inspection, Alban gives a detailed report that includes home strengths, areas of concern and maintenance tips. In addition to the usual electrical, plumbing, and heating and cooling systems checkups, we also conduct tests on excess moisture, temperature and the condition of the home's drywall.
