What Happens During a Home Inspection?

La Maison Home Inspections provide professional and certified home inspections in the Sarasota/Manatee region. We also build custom homes, so we know what to look for and what issues are important.

Buying a home is a large investment, possibly the largest investment you will make in your lifetime. Getting a proper home inspection done is critical because you cannot test drive a home before you buy it. Home inspectors look at every aspect of the home from the foundation to the roof to make sure it is a safe place for you and your family to live. It is important that you use a qualified and professional home inspector, like La Maison Home Inspections, who will treat the inspection as if we are buying the house for our own family.

What is actually inspected during a home inspection?  Basically, we are looking at everything inside and outside to get an overall “visual snapshot” of the home you are looking to purchase. We look at thousands of areas in and around the home, including appliances, structures, and systems.

Here are just a few of the important things that we inspect for you:

–          Roof

–          Foundation

–          Electrical system

–          HVAC system

–          Plumbing

We also carefully look for any water damage or evidence of water leaks.

La Maison Homes and Inspections provide you with a professional, unbiased ASHI/NACHI certified report within 24 hours of the inspection.

This report will give you a cohesive idea of what (if anything) needs to be repaired and what will be required to repair it. It is then, up to you as the buyer, to determine what you are comfortable accepting or what you would like the seller to repair before the purchase.

La Maison Homes and Inspections also build, remodel and repair homes.  It is safe to say, we know homes. If you are buying a home and need a home inspector in Manatee, Sarasota or the surrounding counties, please contact us today!
