What is a home inspection?

A home inspection is an objective visual analysis of a home`s structure and mechanical systems. An inspection will determine the areas of the home that are not performing properly, as well as items that are beyond their usefull life or are unsafe. Inspections include areas of the home`s interior and exterior, from the roof to the foundation and the exterior drainage and retaining walls. If problems and symptoms are found, the inspector may recommend further evaluation.We also will give you solutions to the defiencies so you may make a better judgement without calling for estimates for each defiency. A home inspection is a visual inspection to determine problems and conditions that exist at the time of the inspection.

Why Do I Need A Home Inspection?

The purchase of a home is one of the largest purchases you will make. It is important that you know as much as possible about this purchase. A home inspector is trained to be able to evaluate the home in detail and give you a report that will allow you to make a good decision about purchasing the home. An inspection report will describe the home in detail and will highlight the areas that are problems. A home inspection is a good idea even if you are already a homeowner. We all get physical checkups - why not give your home a checkup? Many homeowners are living in homes that have serious problems that if identified early can save considerable repair costs. Water leaks can cause serious and costly problems, but if they are caught early can be repaired at little cost. A home inspection will also give you an outline of the routine maintenance that needs to be done to the home. Home sellers will want an inspection to find problems that a buyer's inspection would have found. The seller can then make the repairs prior to the home going on the market.

What To Look For In A Home Inspector?

Experience:

Find out how much experience a potential inspector has. If an inspector has not been performing inspections very long, this probably means they don`t have the experience nor the insurance to adequately protect you.

Association Membership:

Is the inspector a member of a professional Home Inspection organization? Companies that are affiliated with professional organizations are serious about what they do, and they know about all the new developments in their fields. They are continually informed about changes in the building codes and city codes that make changes.

National Home Inspection organizations include:

  • American Society of Home Inspectors
  • National Associations of Home Inspectors (NAHI)
  • Their are several other local organizations that provide support for Home Inspectors in a certain state or region.

Liability Insurance:

Does the inspector carry Professional Liability Insurance (Errors and Omissions Insurance)? Make sure you ask for a copy of their liability insurance policy. If you ever need to collect on a legal judgment, the inspector's insurance policy may be able to pay on your claim. An inspector without insurance may not be able to pay your claim.

A C.I.S. home inspector's report will review the condition of the home's heating system, plumbing, electrical system and central air conditioning system (temperature permitting), as well as the roof, attic, visible insulation, walls, ceilings, floors, windows, doors, foundation, basement, landscaping, and visible structure. We also provide gas testing and moisture detectors for basement moisture with as a part of each inspection.
 
What Will A Typical Home Inspection Cost?

Each home inspection company has their own pricing structure. Inspection fees vary based on the area of the country and the type, size, and features of the home or building. Most inspectors will charge extra for services such as radon testing, termite inspections, well and septic inspections. A typical inspection fee for a 2,000 square foot home varies from $190 to $500. The cost of the inspection should not be the only consideration for hiring an inspector. A good inspection that informs you of all the potential problems in a home is worth the money. A bargain inspector may give you an inferior report. Once you have purchased the home, it may be very costly to repair problems that were omitted from the inspection report.

Additional Services

C.I.S. inspectors will offer you services such as:

  • Radon testing: Make sure they follow the US EPA Protocols for testing
  • Termite inspections
  • General Home Inspections (ASHI guidelines)
  • Bank required Inspections
  • Commercial Inspections
  • Apartment Inspections
  • Foreclosure Inspections
  • Real Estate Inspections
Can I Do The Inspection Myself?
Most home buyers will look at a home that they want to purchase and look for reasons to purchase the home. The prospective home buyer is not able to look at the home with the unbiased critical eye of a home inspector. Even a home buyer with construction experience does not have the knowledge and tools of a home inspector. A C.I.S. inspector is trained and experienced in finding the clues in a home that indicate problems. These clues are sometimes very subtle and hard to find. Most inspectors use tools that help them determine problems. Some inspectors have performed hundreds of inspections, and they are familiar with problems with certain building materials or building styles. Crown Home Inspections have preformed well over 3000 home inspections.
When Purchasing a Home When Should I Call For a Home Inspection?
 
When purchasing a home you will want to have the home inspected within a few days after the purchase agreement is signed. You want to make sure you have a clause in your purchase agreement that allows you to have an inspection and that you have the right to terminate the agreement if you find the home in unsatisfactory condition. This clause should specify the terms to which both the buyer and seller are obligated.
 
Should I Be There During The Inspection?
 
We recommend that you are present at the inspection. C.I.S. inspectors will allow you to be there and ask questions after the inspection is completed. C.I.S. inspectors will point out the areas that are potential problems. This is important because you will be able to see for yourself the extent of problems that are sometimes hard for an inspector to convey in a report. C.I.S. inspectors will also show you how the heating system works and show you what things will need to be maintained in order to keep the home in good condition.
 
What If The Inspection Report Reveals Problems?

Almost all homes will show problems. Even newly constructed homes will have problems noted on an inspection report. This is why we recommend an inspection even for new construction. Your C.I.S.inspector will be able to identify major problems that will be costly. Minor problems are to be expected and can be repaired after closing. Major problems may require a negotiation between you and the seller as to how to fix the problems. A seller may adjust the purchase price or contract terms if major problems are found. If the problems are costly, you will be able to make your decision about purchasing the home with the proper knowledge about the future cost of that home.

Why you should get a home inspection!

Buying a home is one of the most important purchases you will make in your lifetime, so you should be sure that the home you want to buy is in good condition. A home inspection is an evaluation of a home’s condition by a trained expert. During a home inspection, your C.I.S. qualified inspector takes an in-depth and impartial look at the property you plan to buy. The inspector will:

  • Evaluate the physical condition: the structure, construction and mechanical systems.
  • Identify items that should be repaired or replaced.
  • Estimate the remaining useful life of the major systems (such as electrical, plumbing, heating, air conditioning), equipment, structure and finishes.

Why an C.I.S. inspector?

250 paid fee inspections.

Hello Mark,
I just wanted to let you know how pleased I was to have
had Crown Inspection perform the home inspection of the
house my wife and I have begun the purchase of in Parma, Ohio.

The professionalism and thoroughness of the inspection
done has not only given us peace of mind regarding this
property, but also helped uncover a serious drain condition that
even the current-owner was unaware of.

Thank you again - we'll be sure to use and recommend
Crown Inspection to our friends and family who may need this
type of service!

Sincerely,
Tom and Dawn Lazar
Mark;

Just wanted to drop a line and tell you how glad I am that we chose your company for
our inspection on our new home. Not only was the report thorough, but it brought to
light a lot of little things that needed attention with the house. Also it is a
great bargaining tool. After the report was given to the seller we were able to knock
off some of the asking price for the repairs that needed to be done.

Great report and great company.



Thanks again;

***With the sale or listing of a home, home inspections are often needed to finalize the proceedings. Home inspections are intricate looks at the finest details of a home. It is the home inspection that will tell a home buyer whether or not the home is safe for purchase and habitation. So, when choosing a home inspector for your home inspection, you need to ensure only the most trained inspectors will be looking through your walls.
A professional home inspector is more than simply a person that looks throughout the home for dings, holes and water leaks. Home inspections are detailed surveys that gauge the overall status of the home's condition. When choosing a home inspection service, make sure they are trained in the latest home inspection codes, rules and regulations, as well as, being certified to perform a home inspection.
In conjunction with being certified, the home inspector you choose should be responsible, professional, unbiased and experienced. The company should carry liability insurance for the safety of both the homeowner and the inspector. Memberships to the American Society of Home Inspectors, National Association of Home Inspectors or any local home inspection guild is also a very good sign.
General home inspections are the final step before purchasing a home. The home inspectors report holds great weight with the buying family. But, home purchases are not the only use for home inspections. When listing a home for sale, allowing a certified home inspector to walk through the home and write a report on the dwelling will provide buyers with that ever so valuable information before making an offer on the home.
Building inspections can be completed with hours, but reports can often take days to compile. Rest assured, with Crown Home Inspection Services, you will receive that report within minutes, not days. Crown utilizes the most up to date report generating software to print off an instant report of the home. This precious time can mean the difference in securing that sale or offer from a potential home buyer.

Crown works with homeowners on a seven day a week bases with most inspections being scheduled within 48 hours of the first call. Fast service, attention to detail and an unbiased look. Crown's certified home inspectors will make sure the home you are in is the best one for you.
