An inspection can last four or more hours, so we recommends that clients be present for part of the inspection. At a minimum clients are encouraged to attend the tail end of the inspection. We can then walk through and go over any findings. It is helpful for clients to hear the inspectors comments directly. This will help you determine what items (that will be included in the report) are a concern, or less of a concern. Remember, an inspection is not a pass or fail proposition. Attending the inspection, if possible, will give you as a chance to take a closer look at components of the home you typically wouldn’t. Plus, it is an opportunity to learn more about the systems, which we’ll educate you on.
